Q:

Can you tell me about your registration process?

A:

Dues are $22.00 per family for the fiscal year (September thru August). You may complete our membership form online, read and accept the membership agreement, and both you and your spouse sign it. Please bring your payment to our Back to School Bash/Information Fair in July or follow the payment information on the membership agreement. Once the online registration is submitted, approved and payment is received, you will be able to log into the site. All correspondence is done through this website and our group Facebook page, so please use an email address you check often.

Q:

What do you expect from me as a member?

A:

Our group is made up of families just like you, we are homeschooling, involved in outside activities, and trying to juggle many different responsibilities. A team effort is needed to make all the activities/events happen. We can do much more as a group through our combined individual efforts.

Each family is asked, when turning in their membership form, to select 1 act of service for the group each year.  Acts of Services will include things such as party clean up, graduation servers, plan a field trip, etc.  A complete list of choices is found on the online membership registration form.
