How do SHG events work?
All events take place the same way..... some homeschooling parent (or kid!) dreamt it up and organized it. The breadth of what folks offer is astounding! From cheese-making classes to formal dances, Latin lessons and camping trips, parent gatherings and lectures, simple invites to ramble a park and even complex programs that resemble schools....
Events are posted via the Yahoo Group. Some are recurring, some once-offs and some spontaneous. It is useful to understand that the Seattle Homeschool Group is a loose community of homeschooling families & when you see an announcement about an activity, please remember that you are receiving an invitation from an individual to join in on some fun, be considerate and respectful of their time & efforts. The event-organizer decides whether the event is SHG-only, or open to folks beyond SHG as well (ie. posted to other homeschooling groups or even the public at large).
See the featured events & sub-groups page to learn more about a selection of popular, recurring events. There are many more as well.
Feeling nervous? Have a look at the newcomers wayfinding page to hear from those who have been there.
We look forward to seeing you!
