Our group is made up of families just like you; we are homeschooling, we are involved in outside activities, etc. So the group takes everyone pitching in to get the job done for our kids!
~ First time homeschoolers or those new to our group: nothing for the year except help when you come to an event.
~ If you are not new to the group, you will need to plan an event. You can plan a large event (like Christmas, Valentine’s or a Family all ages event) with 2-3 others and that will count, or plan a field trip, park date, mom's night, etc. We like to ask our kids for ideas and plan what they would like! If a member has an Elementary child and Tween, ask both of your kids and plan an event "for each of them". Kids get a big kick out of the fact that their parent planned the event!
~ Helping does not count as your requirement, as you are expected to help as needed at an event that you and your children are attending.
~ Remember, you can plan an age specific event, (Elementary K-4th, Tweens 5th-8th; or High School) whole group event, field trip, craft day, theatre event, etc.
~ If you are a member with extreme family situations, just let us know and we will gladly welcome you as a member without any event responsibility from you until you are able.
~ If you don’t plan or execute your event (unless beyond your control, like illness, etc.), you will not be allowed to rejoin the next year.
~ Dues of $10 per family are due before you can be approved for membership. If paying that is a problem, please just let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org
