Part of making school fun is seeing how things work! We do that by making field trips an integral part of our group. We try to schedule at least 2 field trips per month. Field trips are scheduled throughout the Chicagoland suburbs, Chicago, and Indiana. Some field trips are free to the group and some have a nominal fee. This year our tentative field trip schedule for 2018-2019 is as follows:
To start the new school year, we begin with our annual Kick-off Picnic! Families come out to enjoy a pot-luck style dinner. This year, our picnic will be held on Saturday, September 8, from 3-7 pm at Central Park Pavillion (201 Recreation Dr., Bolingbrook, IL 60440). Please email email@example.com if you are interested in attending!
Mom's Night Out
An important part of the homeschool journey is having a great support system. Our group strives to encourage one another through meaningful and fun activities! During some of our past mom's nights we created a prayer journal, had a bon fire and enjoyed hot cider, had a Christmas ornament exchange, and made Christmas wreaths. This year we are planning to have a bon fire with hot apple cider and s'mores, make Christmas ornaments, have a night out bowling, and have a game night. No matter what the activity, our mom's nights are always filled with laughter!
End of Year Celebration
Homeschooling is hard work! Each year we recognize the efforts of both teachers and students at our end of year celebration. This event focuses on the achievements of our students that are both promoting to the next grade level and graduating from high school. The ceremony is held in mid-May.
