Teen Age Group

 

 Support groups are located throughout Palm Beach County. These groups meet monthly at parks throughout the county and parents can choose them according to their location or need. Monthly meetings consist of an information time for parents, as well as a play time for the children. Field trips, service projects, Moms' Night Out, and holiday celebrations are all coordinated through these groups. We encourage prospective members to check out the various support groups until they find one that meets their needs, and then to plug into that group and become involved in it. Support groups will be an encouragement to you and to your children!

Remember to save Box Tops for Education.

Parents and children meet to support each other in their homeschool journey.  These meetings are a "spring-board" for families to connect and plan co-ops, field trips, and form friendships.  While the children play and teens hang out in the park, parents discuss homeschool issues and educational opportunities that are available. ALL sign ups for the field trips planned by members and group events take place at these meetings.  PEC meetings are open to all homeschoolers and those considering homeschooling, though membership is required for field trip participation.

*Childcare is not provided at any PEC meetings.  Every parent is responsible for their own child(ren) as PEC is not responsible for the safety or supervision of any children at their events.*  Please bring WATER for your family to the park meeting.

ONGOING ACTIVITIES:  
 
Our ongoing Support: we would like to help Brenda Dickinson with HEF.  Brenda is our Home School lobbyist and we think more than ever, she needs our support both financially and in prayer.  Please bring your financial gift to the park meeting each month.

Box Tops for Education - Collecting boxtops is an EASY way to help our group get funding for prizes, parties, and other activities.  Just look for the white squares with the pink file folder marked BOXTOPS FOR EDUCATION on many of the brands you already  buy.   Simply cut them out, collect in a plastic bag, and bring to the park.  Please trim your boxtops before bringing them in, but be careful not to cut the expiration!  You can even ask grandparents and relatives to collect for you, as well.

 

See you at the park!!
