SAVE the DATE! 1st Annual "Adventures in Homeschooling Expo" Coming in Spring!

Every year, our children work hard on essays, science experiments, history reports, artwork, models, dioramas, and more! Wouldn’t it be nice to celebrate a successful year by sharing some of these projects with family, friends, and fellow homeschoolers? Wouldn’t you like to see what others have done or get fresh ideas for future years?

Well, if this sounds appealing to you, then we would like to invite you to participate in the “1st Annual Adventures in Homeschooling Expo” hosted by Horizons Homeschool Ministry at Pine Grove Baptist Church! This event is planned for the evening of Saturday May 19, 2012!

If you are a Christian homeschooler in Santa Maria AND surrounding communities, then YOU ARE INVITED to showcase projects completed during the upcoming 2011-2012 school year at this free “open house” event. All students from Pre-K through 12th Grade are welcome, and you do NOT need to be a member of Pine Grove Baptist Church, Horizons, or any other support group to participate.

Categories are non-competitive and include:
- Arts & Crafts (2D & 3D)
- Writing (Short story, Short essay, and Poetry)
- History, Geography, and Cultural Studies Units (Biblical, World, and American)
- Science Units
- Literature Units
- Home Ec (sewing, knitting, cooking, etc)
- Decorative Cakes (Show off your unique cake constructions)
- Parent’s Corner (a place for moms and dads to display their own talents)

Visual display boards, demonstrations, costumes, and food samples are encouraged but not mandatory. Just share what you can, even if it’s a few sample activities from your curriculum or a photo collection of field trips taken.

For those who lead support groups, co-ops, sports, music and other opportunities from a Christian worldview perspective, we have a place for you as well! Just bring your flyers, brochures, and sign-up sheets to display at our “Local Support & Activities” table.

If you would like to be informed of the event details as they come available, send an email to and be added to our list. Also, contact me if you are interested in helping with the evening in some way (set-up, clean-up, participant check-in, snack hostess, etc).

This will be a fun evening that brings homeschoolers together to celebrate our adventures in Christ-centered, family-led learning! So, make your plans to attend and spread the word!
