HOME SCHOOL SUPPORT
We are also a network for Home School Support in South Carolina and Georgia’s Lowcountry Areas including but not limited to the following counties in South Carolina: Beaufort, Hampton, and Jasper; also Summerville amp; Northern Charleston. In Georgia: Chatham, Bryan Counties. Contact us to get your area connected.The past couple years we’ve expanded our support to areas around the Lowcountry with the help of key volunteer Area Leaders to coordinate events and activities in their respective areas, some including weekly meets for park dates, and/or Library time (Storytime amp; Craft and Junior Book Club), as well as field trips and special events.For Upper School Homeschoolers (ages 12 amp; up), LHA volunteer coordinators plan events for age-appropriate activities from bowling amp; pizza parties to biking and nature walks. These events are mainly based in the Beaufort County areas. However field trips may be anywhere in the East Coast. In fact, recently they attended a music concert in Jacksonville, Florida.
We also offer support group meetings quarterly and hold “Homeschool 101″ informal classes for folks new to homeschooling or the area. Each Area Leader will be able to offer these in their areas as well. Casual coffee shop meetings will be offered for additional support, where available.All members may participate with field trips or events offered in any area that we cover. Prom and Graduation amp; Promotion Ceremonies will be offered in the Beaufort County area. Simply contact that Area Leader to make arrangements or RSVP for our main events. We’d like y’all to know that we believe in unity. “United We Stand!” Join us on our quest to unite and support each other along our home school journey.http://www.weberik.com/ew.phpLENDING LIBRARY
