Hello fellow homeschoolers and welcome to the start of another school year!
If you haven’t sent in your membership form please send it by September 1 to Amy Dougherty.
Let us know if you have any ideas for field trips this year! Some plans for the coming year are – Friday classes in October, Free Enterprise day in November, and a Christmas Party in December.
Don’t forget about the booksale, Saturday, August 26th from 10am-noon in the garage at Rebekah Bowser’s home. If you are interested in selling or buying at this book sale, please let Anne Miller or Rebekah Bowser know! You will need to be responsible for your own table, set-up, pricing, etc. If you want to just leave a box on your table and trust people to be honest, that’s fine. Otherwise, please stay and handle any transactions. If you want to donate anything left over, Rebekah has graciously offered to take leftovers to the Salvation Army. If you want to keep it, you must pick it up by 12:30. Please do not ask Rebekah to hold things for you for longer. By 12:30 or it’s gone!
There’s also going to be a Back to School Party!!
WHAT: Back to school party!
WHEN: Saturday, August 26, 2017 (12-4 pm)
WHERE: Richmond Lake Recreation Area (southwest side of the lake)
WHO: You and your family! Bring them all! The dads, those cute littles, the teens, the dog if you want (but be prepared to keep them leashed)
HOW: This area is a state park and therefore requires the appropriate fees – either a valid 2017 SD state park sticker OR $4/person OR $6/vehicle (I was told “as many people as you can fit into one vehicle”).
This area of Richmond lake offers a swim beach, hiking trail, fishing (bring your own license and equipment please) as well as a playground and picnic areas. So that everyone can come and go as they need, please bring your own picnic lunch.
If you haven’t turned in your AACHE registration form, now is a perfect time to do that! (Forms will be available at the park, you just need your $10/family dues).
Below is map of the area we plan to gather in. I’m thinking that there will be room for us to “set up camp” near the swim beach so bring chairs and blankets as the provided seating is limited in that area.
Here is the homeschool open gym info @ next generation in the mall. First open gym is Sept 6 from 1-2.
*Call NGPC 725-NEXT prior to Wednesday 1:00 each week so Jen Deutsch is aware of how many are coming. She can’t have over 20 in the gym. She usually doesn’t reach that number with our group… but has once or twice. Its also nice to know if no one is coming. That has happened as well.
Every Wednesday 1-2pm for open gym ages 18 months – 12. If there are older than age 12 please have the families ask Jen Deutsch first.
$5.50 each or $11.00 max family. They still only take cash or check. They also have the punch cards available for $45.00 (10 punches).
