Resources to help homeschoolers stay connected.
LOOKING FORWARD TO BACK-TO-SCHOOL
Welcome to the August 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!
