**WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS AT THIS TIME ** *We are a support group serving Arizona homeschooling families in the East Valley. We welcome members from Chandler, Mesa, Tempe and Gilbert as well as all other surrounding areas in the East Valley such as Queen Creek and San Tan Valley. We are based primarily in the Chandler area, although group field trips and other events may be in various valley locations.
We are Christian moms and Happy Hearts is an open-minded and welcoming group that positively encourages and supports members as they enjoy the many rewards and challenges of homeschooling. We are looking to form lasting friendships for the whole family...moms and kids, hopefully even some dads too!
Our group plans park days, group field trips, holiday parties, learning activities, crafts, volunteer & service opportunities, and occasional family activities. We encourage and look forward to all of our members being actively involved in the group and ask that group members do their best to try and participate in activities every month. **All group members are asked to attend group activites on a consistent basis in order to remain an active member of the group. Each group member must also pay dues of $12 a year and "dues" are due within 14 days after group membership is approved.**
Happy Hearts Homeschoolers of the East Valley is a private group. Prospective members are required to attend a "Park Day" with their children first or have spoken to the group organizer before group membership is approved. Families who are currently homeschooling (per AZ law, Homeschool is defined as a nonpublic school conducted primarily by the parent, guardian or other person who has custody of the child or nonpublic instruction provided in the child's home) at least one child between the ages of 5 and 16 are welcome to join Happy Hearts Homeschoolers. Younger siblings are always welcome to participate in our group as well.
Group events and activities are ONLY for established group members and their children to attend. Spouses and grand parents are always welcome to accompany you to activities. Other family members and/or friends participation would need to be approved by the group organizer.
