We have exciting plans for the upcoming fall 2023 semester! You will find something for the whole family!
Every Monday, our Student Experience Team posts a new fun activity for students to complete. This will continue throughout the fall semester. You may find the activities on our campus and our website's member access or student activities resource. Member students who submit their completed activity will be entered into a quarterly drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card.
FunClubs will start back on September 6, 2023. Our FunClubs this semester are Art Club, STEM Club, and Trivia Club. FunClubs meet on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Grades K-5 meet from 1:00 PM-2:00 PM Eastern, and grades 6-12 meet from 2:30 PM -3:30 PM Eastern.
Speciality Clubs will start on September 1, 2023. Our Specialty Clubs this semester are the Student Newsletter, Storytime (grades K-5), and Book Club (grades 6-12). Specialty Clubs meet twice a month. Check out our Event Calendar for dates and times.
The Student Newsletter will meet on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month. Students will work together to create a quarterly newsletter on matters that are important to our students. (This club will run all year.)
Storytime (grades K-5) will meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 12:00 PM Eastern. During storytime, students will be read a short, fun book. After the book reading, there will be a brief discussion on the book. (Fourth and fifth graders are included. Please keep in mind that the stories read will be children's picture books.)
Book Club (grades 6-12) will meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 2:00 PM Eastern. We will all be reading the same book voted on by the students. This is a true book club where we will read the same chapters and discuss those chapters during our meetings. (Fourth and fifth graders are included. Please keep in mind that the books being read will be mostly at a Middle School [Tween] reading level.)
All FunClubs and Specialty Clubs are run by a member of our staff.
Student-led interest groups will start back up on September 5. These groups will meet on the campus. More information is to come.
We have other clubs in the works. Keep your eyes peeled for new club announcements.
We will be continuing our monthly student socials, parent socials, and Parents-as-Teachers training.
Our student socials occur on the 4th Wednesday of every month. Grades K-5 meet from 1:00 PM-2:00 PM Eastern, and grades 6-12 meet from 2:30 PM -3:30 PM Eastern. All student socials begin with an organized activity led by a staff member. Past social events have included a virtual campus scavenger hunt, trivia, a "Who Done It?" mystery, and a "Mock Trial".
Parents can enjoy the company of other homeschooling families in our relaxed, online Parent Cafe. The Parent Cafe meets one Tuesday of the month. Check the FunCation event calendar for dates and times.
Parents-as-Teachers training meets one Friday each month. We cover a variety of topics, from Homeschooling with Exceptionalities to Courseware Training to What it Means to Be a Homeschooler. Check the FunCation event calendar for dates and times.
