Are you considering homeschooling for the first time? Are you new to the area and unfamiliar with state homeschooling laws? Mark your calendar and plan to attend a FREE Homeschool Helps workshop on the topic of “Getting Started Homeschooling” on Thursday, July 23, at 7:00 pm, at the Circle of Life Hospice Building in Springdale/Tontitown.
Getting Started Homeschooling
This workshop will include information on how to submit state intent-to-homeschool forms, encouragement and what to expect for the first year, local support groups, legal support organizations, requirements and the law, and more.
If you know someone who is considering homeschooling for the first time or started last year but has never attended a workshop like this, or a family that has recently relocated to our area and wants to be sure to comply with state laws and requirements, please invite them to attend!
– This is a FREE workshop, but donations are accepted to help cover the cost of handouts.
– RSVP is not needed.
– Childcare is NOT provided; nursing infants and babes in arms are welcome, but we respectfully ask that you please do not bring other children.
From I49, take the Holiday Inn exit in Springdale (exit 72) and go west toward Tontitown.
Near Tontitown, turn right at the Jones Rd. stoplight. There is a Harps on the right at that intersection.
Circle of Life is the first building on the right after Harps, 901 Jones Rd.
It says “Circle of Life” on the building, but at the entrance there is a sign that says “Willard and Pat Walker Family Center” and another that says “Earlene Howard Hospice Home”.
[Please note: Homeschool Helps workshops are not sponsored by any support group; you do not have to be a member of NWACHEA or any other group to attend. The presenters, Marni Hendrix and Shelley Kinder, are veteran homeschool moms who organize the workshops to share their knowledge and experience with other parents.]
