Wednesday, May 19
at the Community Homeschool Center
10am-2pm - Free entry to the entire community.
All day: Ask Me Mentor Moms* - NAME TAGS
Ask Me Teens* - NAME TAGS for students ready to help, baby sit, haul, and more (Read more about that later)
*What is ASK ME? It’s any parent or teen who WANTS to help. If you have five years or more of consecutive ‘official’ homeschooling (We love you, but birth to five doesn’t ‘count’ - though it SHOULD!) you qualify to wear an ASK ME lanyard. This will give newbie moms a place to ask questions! ASK ME Teens - they are the ones who will reply to this email and get signed up for the teen opportunities below.
All books and curricula will be organized by subject, thus, each seller does NOT have to man your own table.

The resource table is your friend! We will have a large sign labeling the resource table(s) where you can place flyers, business cards, coupons, sign up sheets, etc! This is where the CHC Teachers will have lists and descriptions, and EVERY co-op, group, association, non-profit, for profit EVERYONE that helps homeschooling or is some way tied to homeschooling is encouraged to place their info. We’ll have one table for businesses (from roofing to pet sitting) and one table for educational groups and opportunities of all sorts.
