Spring is a busy time for homeschoolers as they wrap-up their current school year and begin making plans for the next. There are several upcoming events that are of particular interest to homeschooling families.
Our sister organization, Granite State Home Educators, regularly lists helpful homeschool articles, resources and events. Families are welcome to follow GSHE on our Facebook page, and join our Facebook group that has over 1,600 members from across the state. GSHE also publishes a free monthly newsletter that includes homeschool articles and events – another way to find all these informative sources! Sign up at our website.
We are also beginning plans for our summer Intro to Homeschooling sessions around the state. Let us know if you’d like to have one in your community! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
