Upcoming Event:

Dear Members:

Good morning! We hope all of you are having a wonderful summer! We are excited to announce that Boca Homeschoolers is becoming the East Boca Support Group with Parents Educating Children (PEC). During this era of change in the world and in our community, this decision was not made lightly. Calling on the wisdom of some veteran BHS board members along with current board members, it was decided that becoming a part of PEC was the best course of action for our Boca Homeschooling families. BHS will become the southern arm of the largest homeschooling group in the South Florida area with the same faith beliefs.

Your local leadership will remain the same as Pastor David & Rose Shaffer will run our support group for what PEC calls “Park Day.” Our Park Days will be held on the third Friday of the month. The exact location of the East Boca Park Days will be determined shortly, and we will message that to you ASAP! The monthly Park Days are designed to encourage and support families in their homeschool journey as well as help families build relationships with one another.

Your PEC membership will provide you with access to member only emails and activities/events. This information is provided via the PEC member only calendar. Once you join, you will go to parentseducatingchildren.com/ and log in. PEC’s leadership team and volunteers are currently working to schedule the following events for the upcoming 20-21 school year:

*American History Night
*Spelling Bee
*International Night
*Math and Science Fair
*Author’s Night
*Talent Show
*Craft Fair Sellers
*Field Trips
*Teen Ice Cream Social
*Teen Christmas Party
*Mom’s Night Out
*Mom’s Christmas Party
*Parent Date Night
*High School Graduation
**Standardized Testing
**High School Prom
**Used Book/Curriculum Sale
Park Days
*Member only events.
**Member discounts.

In addition, you will be able to access the PEC members only Facebook page, obtain a PEC membership card allowing educator discounts at Barnes and Noble etc., and receive a discount code for both FPEA membership, and for HSLDA membership. PEC also keeps their members up to date on homeschool law and actively supports Brenda Dickinson, our homeschool lobbyist out of Tallahassee. All of this is available to you as a member of PEC! PEC Membership for the 20-21SY opened July 1st at $25 as part of PECs early bird special! Come October 1st, dues will increase to $35.

Be assured that some of the BHS board members have met with some of the PEC board members and felt peace in knowing that our Christian beliefs will not change, and that we will still be participating in a faith-based community. Faith has always been a part of Boca Homeschoolers and will remain intact as we join the PEC community. “Parent’s Educating Children’s mission is to support and encourage its member parents who are engaged in a home education program, as well as those considering homeschooling as an academic option. PEC’s philosophy is founded on traditional Biblical, Judeo-Christian values.”

PEC is excited to have us, and we hope you are as thrilled as we are to join them! We are looking forward to our PEC East Boca Park Days so that we can continue our homeschool journey together. We encourage all of you to join PEC; they have been around for almost 40 years and continue to be a strong homeschool community. If you click here, you will be immediately directed to PEC membership sign-ups. You may also join by going to parentseducatingchildren.com/ and clicking on Join in the top right.

We are looking forward to an awesome upcoming school year and can’t wait to see you at our first PEC East Boca Park Day!
