Parent Meeting Thursday 6/27/2013

This week we will host our parent meeting in concurrence with our Arts & Crafts at the South Cobb Library at 805 Clay Road, Mableton, GA 30126. In addition to the Bible verse memorization segments from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible combined with actions to help engage the kids, our parent meeting will discuss the plans for the 2013-2014 school year. We plan to engage ALL age groups this upcoming year so parents of children of ALL ages are encouraged to attend. This is FREE but RSVP is required! 

There is no fee for child care as we anticipated.

Here are some of the things we will discuss for the 2013-2014 School Year.

2014 End of Year Celebration
Nice ceremony to invite the family!  Including the following highlights
  • Multiple Grade Level Promotions with a South Cobb Homeschoolers Yearbook with pages to highlight EVERY student and their accomplishments.

Quarterly Unit Studies
Short, hands-on lesson plans that cover specific topics. These often fill in gaps or add enrichment to a homeschool program. You can download some of these for free, or you can purchase them with supplies and reading materials. They cover a wide variety of topics, and homeschoolers use them for many subjects.  This is open to ALL age groups!!!

We will discuss four ideas for unit studies.  Please ask your child what they would like to learn about.
  • Some ideas I would like to explore is to use the library’s FREE Power Speak and explore the language and culture of the Spanish and Mandarin
