Northwest Arkansas Christian Home Educators Association
All parents are invited to a FREE workshop on Tuesday, October 21, from 7-9 p.m. at the Circle of Life Hospice in Springdale/Tontitown.
TOPIC: Homeschooling Through High School
This workshop will include information on high school courses and credits, grades and transcripts, ACT/SAT tests, graduation, etc.
A note from Marni: I have been asked before if this workshop would benefit someone whose student was just entering junior high. This is how I replied: “Absolutely. I went to my first class like this when my son was in the 8th grade and I wish I would have gone earlier. It is needed to get a big picture of what classes they need to take over those last 4 yrs, what colleges want to see, etc. I think I would have been more diligent about what he completed in 7th and 8th grades in order to be ready to do certain classes in 9th grade + if I would have been more prepared. Plus, just getting rid of my ignorance helped me not to dread that season as much.”
All homeschooling parents are invited to attend the free Homeschool Help Workshops 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.
