We just wrapped up SEVEN Not Back to School parties across the Granite State! We hosted park meet-ups in Newmarket, Alton, Concord, Newport, Hudson, Somersworth, and Derry over a three-week period. This year, more than ever, we wanted our NBTS events to bring people together and help new families meet local homeschoolers and connect into their communities. We had dozens of families attend and the kids made new friends.
The best thing we heard back was that people are eager to make these reoccurring events. Mission Accomplished!
We want to thank our hosts for organizing the awesome meet-up opportunities: Becky Anderson, Amanda Weeden, Jolyn Hoadley, Gabrielle Mignault, Emily Smith, Nicki Nault, Rachel Packard, and Abigail Bellemore.
Here are a few photos from our various parties.
As part of our on-going efforts to help NH families build community, we are interested in talking with GSHE members about organizing and hosting other events over the next few months. If you have an idea and heart to host something fun or educational, contact us at info@GraniteStateHomeEducators.org and let’s put our heads together!
