End of School Year Party

Wednesday, May 30th, at 1:00 p.m. will be our End of School Year Party! If you wish, you can bring a snack to share and something for your family to drink and come join in on the fun at Black Eagle Park.

We will be having a few games for the kids, but most of them will probably want to just hang out with their friends.

Some might want to bring water blasters or their duct-tape warfare items. Others might want to grab their volleyballs or basketballs and play on the courts.

Either way, we hope you come and join us for the picnic! See you there!

Welcome, April!

Homeschool activities are ramping up now that it is spring, and despite the fickle weather, there have been a few fun things happening over the past month. The Nature Club went on a hike up to Tower Rock, the Ski and Snowboard program wrapped up the snow season with a beautiful day on the hill, and bowling at Black Eagle Community Center started. Look for more upcoming activities in the newsletter!

2018 Homeschool Curriculum Fair

2018 Homeschool Curriculum Fair

for National School Choice Week

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Great Falls Public Library Cordingley Room

Who: YOU! Individuals and organizations (like 4H, sport teams, businesses, clubs, co-ops, etc) .

What: Come show-and-tell about homeschooling.*

Where: The Cordingly Room downstairs at the Library

Cost: Nothing! Booths are free on a first-come-first-served basis. And there’s no charge to attend the fair. Reserve a booth to demonstrate how you homeschool or what your organization offers to homeschoolers.

We especially need “average Joe” homeschoolers to share what curriculums and resources you use. Share your experience. Show off your nature journals, timelines, art and history projects, favorite read-alouds, math manipulatives, tricks…anything that can inspire other homeschoolers.

Invite all your friends!

Contact: Erinn Addy via Facebook or e-mail

*Because the Library has kindly allowed us to use the space at no charge, they have asked that there be no money transactions (ie: no sales).

PLEASE RSVP with the ages of your kids so we can plan supplies accordingly. You can message here or call/text Adria at 231-5851.

We do need volunteers to arrive a little early for setup and stay a little late for clean up. If you are willing to help, please contact Adria or Coya.

**OH, and in addition, we will have a WHITE ELEPHANT gift exchange for adults only who would like to participate (bring a used item from home—something under $15 value that is still useable—-wrapped and ready for exchange. Yes, gag gifts are acceptable).
Look forward to seeing everyone!!

What a Great Way to Kick Off our School Year!

Thank you to all who came to the Fall Kickoff! What a fantastic time! Not only did parents get to hear about the numerous activities available for our students, but there were door-prizes, games, a scavenger hunt, water bottle rockets, bubbles, and a slip-n-slide.

Here is a picture of some of the kids who participated in the scavenger hunt. Many of the older students chose not to participate in it, but they were off hanging with their friends.

We hope this school year is filled with joy and laughter!

ScavHunt

Some of the younger students getting lined up-ready to go on a School Supply Scavenger Hunt!

We all make mistakes!

For some reason, the Newsletter editor makes a LOT! Here are some corrections that you may want to know about from June’s newsletter.

The Graduation Ceremony was on May 20th.

Classical Conversations Co-op meets once a week, not once per month, this fall.

As the next edition comes out, we will probably find more corrections that need to be clarified, however, don’t hesitate to contact us for clarification for anything in the newsletter.

Busy Spring!

We have had a busy spring!

Our end-of-year picnic/potluck will be on May 31st.

In the works are the Curriculum and Book Sale coming up on June 10th.

Keep an eye on the newsletter for locations, times, and more fun activities!
