CHESS Fall Festival - Friday, October 31

When:  6:30-8:30pm
Where: Hubble Homestead, DeWitt, MI
Contact:  Jessica Hubble
Cost:  $10/family, plus bag of candy and snack to share
RSVP Date: Monday, October 27

Join other CHESS families from 6:30 - 8:30 pm in DeWitt, MI for a time of family fellowship and fun.

The annual Fall Festival is hosted at the Hubble Homestead.  In case you haven't heard, CHESS would like to invite you to join other homeschool families for a family fun activity on October 31 that doesn't involve costumes or door-to-door traveling.  Join us for snacks, hot apple cider by the bonfire (s'mores too!), a tractor-pulled wagon ride, and a search through Harvest Mountain for candy and toy surprises followed up by a reading of The Pumpkin Patch Parable in the Big Red Barn.  An evening of wholesome fun and fellowship awaits your family on October 31st!

Your family can check-in for the fun at 6:30 pm.  We will rotate through 4 fun activities and end at 8:30pm.  Come dressed for the weather, and ready to smile!  We ask each family to bring a snack or treat to share and a bag of candy for the Mountain.  Cost is $10 per family, payable when you arrive.

Please RSVP by emailing Jessica Hubble, by October 27th with your name, number of children attending, your phone # and email.

Volunteers are still needed to help this event run smoothly.  If you're able to help, please indicate that when you RSVP.

Hope to see you at the Hubble's!

We’ll be using the book “The Pumpkin Patch Parable” to remind the kids of some Biblical truths that can be learned from pumpkins! We have been sharing this story with children and adults for the past 11 years – and are always encouraged to be reminded that, in spite of all of our “lumps and bumps”, God loves each and every one of us, and wants to put His light inside of us for all the world to see!


2015 Mid-Michigan Graduation Meeting - November 6

Contact:  Miriam Woods, , 517.231.1634

We would like to invite all 2015 graduates and their parents to join us for an informational meeting November 6 at 7:00.  We would like graduates and parents as possible at this first meeting.  The meeting will take place at West Lansing Church of Christ (5505 W. St. Joseph, Lansing, MI  48817). 

The Mid-Michigan Home School Graduation is sponsored by Christian Home Educators Support System (CHESS). Even though this is sponsored by CHESS, you do not have to be a CHESS member to participate. Graduation is open to any homeschool senior in Mid-Michigan who has met their parents' requirements for high school graduation. This year's graduation will take place on Friday evening, May 8, 2015 at Riverview Church.

At the first meeting, we will get to know one another and begin thinking about planning various aspects of this year's ceremony. We will have another meeting in February and one in April.  If you are planning on joining us for the November 6th meeting, please RSVP to  Miriam Woods ( or 517.231.1634). If you know of other graduate families that would like to join us, please invite them to come along to the meeting with you.


Dear Members and Friends of CHESS,
Over the last several years a few other homeschool support groups have formed in the Lansing area, and it has recently become apparent that there may be some confusion about these groups and what it means to be a member of these groups.  The purpose of this letter is to clarify a few things about CHESS that may be helpful to you as you make decisions about your homeschooling journey and about engaging with other homeschool families to support and enrich your experience.  Continue reading...

FYI:  If you are needing to print the pdf forms from the website, download them to your computer first.  If you do not, you may end up with a lot of weird symbols and such.
