Building a Better Homeschool Community in ECI

DCCHC and Muncie's Minnetrista Cultural Center are joining up to offer a program for all homeschooling families in the ECI area. It's is called "Building a Better Homeschool Community in ECI." We have two goals for the time that will serve both new and experienced homeschoolers with children of all ages.

First, we are putting together a panel of people in the area that will present various homeschool resources. Some of our presenters include the Burris Lending Library, BSU's Homeschool Liaison, The Muncie Children's Museum, Ben Bennett and Jane Casey from IHEN and IndianaHomeschoolers, and Rita Moore's Science Classes.

There will be time for Q&A with our presenters and gathering materials on many other organizations as well. Secondly, we will have a chance to interact with organizations like Minnetrista to help them better serve the homeschool community. This is a great opportunity for us to offer input and help shape their programs. We want to strongly encourage as many homeschool families as possible to attend. In order to make the most of this time we are asking for only adults to attend. Snacks and drinks will also be available. Please direct any questions by e-mail to Andrea Replogle.

Directions are available on the Minnetrista Center's web site.

To keep up on other events happening in Delaware County and East Centeral Indiana, Join the HomeschoolCOCO e-list.
