Homeschool Workshop: Firm Foundations Presented by Kris Cox, MACHE representative and Educational Consultant Homeschooling is a great privilege and blessing as well as a big responsibility. There’s a lot to learn about homeschooling, with every year being a new adventure! This informative 3-hour workshop is meant to help you build a firm foundation for your homeschool. We’ll discuss many important aspects of homeschooling such as current MN homeschool laws, teaching tips, choosing curriculum, scheduling, planning, avoiding burnout, dealing with resistant learners, understanding learning styles, and ideas for developing a love for learning in your children. A great workshop for the beginning homeschooler but also perfect for the homeschooling parent who needs renewed vision and direction or guidance in any of the areas listed here. You’ll receive relevant information to assist you in providing an excellent education for your children.
Homeschool Workshop: High School and Beyond Presented by Cheri Frame, MACHE representative and Educational Consultant Homeschooling through high school might seem intimidating, but be encouraged! These can be the most enjoyable and influential years you have with your teens. This 3-hour seminar will help you develop a comprehensive 7-12th grade plan. Starting with a strong academic foundation of high school courses and credits, you will also learn how to individualize your students’ education based on their graduation goals. You will also learn how to create a transcript, include earning college credit in high school with PSEO and CLEP, and the guiding steps for career exploration. Parents and students alike will gain confidence and be encouraged to homeschool through high school as they see the big picture unfold and create a vision for these extraordinary years. Teens are encouraged to attend with you and may attend with a parent at no extra charge!
When you arrive on Monday or Tuesday, you will find the payment box in the Activity Center Kitchen window. Thank you!

Parking at HERO
If you have a teenage driver, please remind them to drive slow in the parking lot. We have many little children crossing the parking lot throughout the day. Please note the HERO one-way entrance and exit out of the parking lot. All large vehicles need to park in the designed areas (near the basketball courts and church garden area).
Check out our HERO Calendar for upcoming field trips! You will also find sign-up sheets and more information at the Activity Center Resource Area by Kitchen window. Keep checking back as we add more field trips throughout the year!
