FAQs

Q:

Tell me about WHEAT. Who are you and what are you all about?

A:

WHEAT began in the early 1990's as a loose-knit group of about a dozen families who desired fellowship and encouragement in their homeschooling efforts. You can read the WHEAT story here! The mission of WHEAT remains the same today: to share information, provide support for homeschooling families and those interested in homeschooling, and to enrich those families spiritually, academically, and socially. 

Q:

Do you offer co-ops and classes?

A:

We share a wealth of information about clubs, co-ops, and other enrichment opportunities offered both throughout the community and by WHEAT members. Our families are encouraged to offer and participate in these opportunities!

Q:

If you don't have an official co-op or classes, how will I get to know the WHEAT family?

A:

We are a friendly bunch! Our annual school year kick-off picnic is a great way to meet veteran and new WHEAT families. Becoming involved in clubs and activities that WHEAT promotes is a good chance to meet others. Throughout the year we have regular fellowship events for moms called Heart to Heart, and we have a winter talent show that is fun for the whole family. Several wonderful field trips throughout the year are offered, and we end the year with a student/graduate recognition event. Stay abreast of what's happening through the newsletter and this website's member forum and join in the activities!

Q:

What is expected of me once I join?

A:

As with any pursuit, the more you invest in a group the more rewarding the experience and the richer the relationships will be. We highly encourage each member to support at least one WHEAT event each year, or take on a leadership position. Supporting events can be as low-key as volunteering for set-up or clean-up; hostessing or coordinating a mom's fellowship activity, or perhaps joining the leadership team. We welcome member article submissions to our newsletter (parents and students). Many hands make light work!
