Mom's Night Out (MNO).
SACHSA moms get together for fellowship and learning. Nonmembers are welcome to come and meet other home schooling moms and to learn what SACHSA is all about. Many topics are shared. MNO is not limited to just moms; dads are encouraged to attend. Come for fellowship, inspiration, to share thoughts about homeschooling, and to pass on information about up and coming events. We invite you to join us at MNO. MNO is held at various times, check the SACHSA Calendar to see when MNO is scheduled or feel free to email theSACHSA office for more information.
Coordinators organize activities for kids.
Volunteer coordinators help organize monthly activities for SACHSA kids. Field trips, park days, bowling, holiday parties, and educational activities are just a few of the things that have been done. But monthly coordinators are not the only ones that can organize event.Events can be organized by anyone who has an idea and the time! Just check with that month's coordinator to make sure the day is open.
Co-ops involve cooperative teaching where two or more parents join together to teach a course. For example, four homeschooling moms might collaborate on a high school history course. Each mom would be responsible for preparing lesson plans, planning field trips, and leading discussions for a semester. Your investment of preparation and instruction for one quarter would pay off in your child receiving instruction for the whole school year. The also adds the opportunity for your child to be around other homeschool children. See our Co-op page for more information.
SACHSA members coordinate a Spelling Bee, Science Fair, History Fair, and Geography Bee.
These are great opportunities for SACHSA kids.
The History Fair usually takes place in October.
The Geography Bee and Science Fair are usually in January.
And the Spelling Bee is usually in February.
