Our purpose is to serve the CHESS membership by facilitating communication and dispersing, in a timely manner, information that is relevant to our members homeschooling efforts.
Areas of Ministry
With so much information available, CHESS member families are hard pressed to keep up-to-date! The internet has proven to be a valuable tool in keeping CHESS families informed of what's going on in the world of homeschooling. Our email list is not shared or sold to anyone, and is only used to notify CHESS members of breaking CHESS news.
Our member database constantly being updated with new member information so that we can continue to contact our members in a timely fashion, whether through email, newsletter or via the telephone.
CHESS is excited to provide each member with a pictorial Membership Directory, a great way to match names with faces, and find the phone numbers of like-minded home educators! The Directory is strictly for CHESS members and currently can be viewed on our website.
Every year, a Member Handbook is printed listing and explaining all that CHESS has to offer and clearly defining how CHESS operates. Look for your edition of the Member Handbook every fall!
We provide a newsletter 2 times a year - a pre-Open House edition in May and a Back to School edition in the late summer.
CHESS is working on providing members and the homeschool community with another great resource, our own presence on the internet! Already up and running, and getting better every week, the CHESS website: www.lansinghomeschoolers.com will be the place to find out more about what's up in our community of homeschoolers, post "swap ads" for curriculum, participate in bulletin board "chats", and just keep up to date!
