18 Oct Connecting with Other Homeschool Families
Posted at 08:00h in News
One of our founding principles at Homeschool Connections was to provide an environment where homeschooling families felt included, welcomed and connected with each other and the resources available to them. Over 12 years later, “Connecting and Belonging” is still one of our top priorities and part of our core values.
As we have continued to grow and expand, we are also seeking new ways to bring people together. As we now have seven campuses, we have been making efforts to provide more opportunities for parents and students to get to know one another, develop relationships, share helpful information and encourage one another.
Michigan Homeschool Field Trips
As part of our commitment to helping homeschool families come together in fellowship, this year we will be planning at least one field trip a month. Our current field trips planned included the Motown Museum in October, The Festival of Trees in November and The Parade Company Tour in December. (get more information and register here We’ll be announcing more as soon as they become available.
We hope that you and your family will attend these field trips and have many more exciting events coming up this year!
Michigan Homeschool Message Boards
We realize that everyone has different schedules and that it may not be possible to participate in an in-person event or hang out on campus to get to know other families. With that in mind, we also want to be able to provide a way for parents to communicate online. After much consideration and testing different communication platforms, we’re very excited to announce our new Homeschool Connections Message boards!
The Message Boards are easy to find and easy to use. They are right on our website. You can find them by clicking this link or by clicking on “Connect” in the main navigation menu on our website. You’ll need to register with the site in order to participate in the message boards, which is very easy to do (pick a user name and a password). If you have a question about homeschooling, curriculum you want to buy or sell, want to list your business or just start a chat, this is the place to do it!
if you have any questions or difficulties getting onto the message boards, please contact me at Christina@MiHomeschoolConnnections.com.
More Ways to Connect
We will continue to share information on our Facebook page and through weekly email newsletters Be sure that you are subscribed to both so that you can learn about new opportunities and resources as soon as they are announced. In addition to these resources, you can follow us on Pinterest and our blog where we share some great information to help in your homeschool journey.
We hope to see you at one of our field trips and on the message boards!
