There are so many great homeschool groups in the Sacramento area, but we would love to meet up with other families closer to home for educational activities and fun. If you're in Citrus Heights or nearby (Orangevale, Fair Oaks, Roseville, Rocklin, Antelope, Granite Bay, etc.), please join us!! Again, the idea here is to hold events and make friends in the immediate area, visiting nearby parks, using the Sylvan and Fair Oaks Libraries (Fair Oaks Library is a homeschooler's paradise), attending community events, etc. Most of our events will be held in Citrus Heights (on the East side of I-80), Roseville, Fair Oaks, but we have events in many surrounding areas as well.
Because the needs of kids of different ages can vary so much, we will be gearing the group toward ages 15 and under. This will help us to plan field trips and co-ops that are age appropriate, as well as to limit some of the influences of older kids on our young ones. We can share information on our favorite curriculum and our favorite homeschool classes while our kids have a chance to learn and play together.
This group requires active in-person participation and support from its members to be successful. Families are expected to help in various ways - by setting up field trips, hosting co-ops, opening up their homes for events, etc. (by planning at least 1 event per year per family). There are many ways you can help, just let us know what your strengths are and what you can offer to the group.
This group does require an annual fee. Dues ($10.00 per family) are good through FEBRUARY 2017.This will fund the Meetup.com site, but will also help the group by having people actually commit to being a part of it. Often free groups have lots of lookers without many active participants. By charging a fee, people tend to feel more committed and want to "get their money's worth" from the group by attending events and participating. For the safety of those in the group, we do require that you complete the questionnaire and submit a picture of yourself and/or your kids before your membership is approved. You will then have thirty days to attend at least one event and, should you decide the group is a good fit for your family, to pay the annual dues.
WE ARE A NUT-FREE GROUP. OK, we may be nutty homeschoolers, but because of the life-threatening allergies of some of our members, we do not allow nuts of any kinds (including peanut butter and other nut butters) at any of our events.
If our group sounds like a good fit for you so far, please click above to join!! We look forward to meeting you and your homeschooling family soon!!
