Announcements By Month
Northwest Arkansas Christian Home Educators Association
All homeschooling parents are invited to a free Homeschool Help Workshop – Teaching Tips for the Elementary Grades (K-6th) – on Monday, August 25, from 7-9 p.m. at the Circle of Life Hospice Building in Springdale/Tontitown. Topics will include: teaching each of the subjects, managing the school day, making school efficient and meaningful, and choosing books at the library.
Homeschool Help Workshops are organized by veteran home educators Marni Hendrix and Shelley Kinder. Both Marni and Shelley have many years of experience and have homeschooled children through graduation. These workshops are FREE but donations are accepted to help cover the cost of handouts. The event is not sponsored by a support group, and you do not need to be a member of any group to attend.
Childcare is not provided at the workshop. Nursing infants and babes in arms are welcome.
Directions to Circle of Life hospice:
– From I540 (now called I49), take the 412 / Sunset exit (#72) in Springdale, and drive west toward Tontitown.
– Turn right at the Jones Rd. stoplight (the intersection with the Harps store on the right/north side of 412). Circle of Life is the first building on the right after Harps, 901 Jones Rd. It says Circle of Life on the building, but the sign at the entrance reads Willard and Pat Walker Family Center.
NWACHEA’s membership year begins each August and runs through the following July, and 2014/15 applications for Rogers and Fayetteville are now available. If your family plans to participate with either branch this year, please plan to send in your application ASAP!
