Anyone currently homeschooling or interested in gaining more information on getting started are invited to join this group which meets the first Friday of each month to share ideas and materials. Participants are encouraged to attend as their schedules permit. Bring the kids along to read a book, use the library or meet with friends. Joining this group does not require you to attend every month.
