Homeschool Launch: Tools for Beginning Your School Year Right

August 8, 2016
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Anyone interested in homeschooling during the upcoming school year is welcome to attend a free information sharing event hosted by FAITH Homeschool Group on Monday, August 8th. This event will give local parents the tools they need for home educating in Arkansas and Oklahoma. The event, held at Harvest Time Church from 5:30PM–8:30PM, will begin with a New Homeschool Orientation at 5:30. Pre-Session Workshops, from 6:00 – 6:45, will include the following topics: Struggling Learners, Getting Through High School, Choosing Curriculum, and Homeschooling Through Special Circumstances. The General Session, from 6:45–7:45, will address: Setting a Vision for Your Homeschool, Discovering Academic & Social Opportunities, Getting Parental Support, Participating in Co-op, and Flourishing on the Difficult Days. The evening will conclude with an Activity Fair from 7:45–8:30, where parents will find information about various activities open to students, such as Crusaders Volleyball, Co-op, Academics Team, Yearbook Staff, Student Council, Little FAITH Play Group, and more. Everyone who attends will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to the Learning Oasis, with the largest source of instructional supplies in Fort Smith. Homeschooling can be a tough journey both to begin and to continue. Getting the right information at just the right time can be the difference between success and frustration. The homeschool veterans in FAITH wish to share their knowledge with anyone who needs support for their home educating endeavor. FAITH HOMESCHOOL GROUP FAITH (Family Association for the Instruction and Teaching at Home) is an association of Christian families dedicated to the belief that the ultimate responsibility for the education of children belongs to their parents. Founded in 1991, FAITH continues to provide encouragement, support, and assistance to new and existing homeschoolers. For more information, visit our website at FortSmithFAITH.org
