Resources to help homeschoolers stay connected.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR!
Welcome to the February issue of The Connected Homeschool Newsletter!
While we will try to stay ahead of the many events and activities for homeschoolers, there are always some that we find out about just days before which will not make it into the newsletter in time, so please keep checking the Home page and the Calendar page of the website for updated
If you know of an event or activity that we have not covered, please let us know by emailing us, so we can share it with the entire homeschooling community.
If this newsletter has been forwarded to you, you can click here to sign up to get it delivered directly to your email address.
Thanks and stay happily connected!

The Connected Homeschool website has added a new page under Resources dedicated to listing Homeschool Friendly Businesses
(businesses that offer discounts to homeschoolers or special homeschool days, businesses run by homeschoolers, etc.). If you know of any homeschool friendly businesses not yet listed, please email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for some savvy homeschooling moms to write a paragraph or two of inspiration and/or information to share in upcoming newsletters. This can be linked to your blog if you have one. If anybody is interested, please email Julie at email@example.com
