End of the Year Homeschool Fair – Thursday May 26th

When: Thursday May 26th, 5-10pm
Where: Holy Covenant Church Basement (1426 Alexandra Ave – Saskatoon)

What do I mean by “homeschool fair”?
A chance to sell used books, visit, and share ideas for the coming school year. Not just coffee and treats time (although there will be those), there will be a short (about an hour-from 7-8pm) time when anyone who wants can share their idea for a class, field trip, project, club etc. If you’ve found some cool curriculum but think it would really be better followed in a group setting, be prepared to talk about it. Would you be willing to plan field trips if you had someone to work with? Favorite educational finds of the past year – please share!

NEW PLAN for the Used Book Sale** My husband Andrew has volunteered to be the cashier for the evening, recording sales and collecting money. This means that you do not need to run your own table, but you still could if you’d prefer. Please mark each and every item for sale with your name or initials and the price. I’ll be at the church with tables set up by 5pm. If you are planning to sell books, please e-mail me (Kayla – klarc.hunt@gmail.com) with your name, the “code” you’ll use to mark your books and estimated amount of books (ie, 1 box, 10 boxes…).
Come when you can, we’ll have “official” forum time from 7-8, but the rest of the evening will just be shopping and chatting!

If you would like to share a class opportunity, co-op idea, favorite website….but just won’t be able to attend, please send me a paragraph or two with your contact information and I’ll compile them into a handout.

Any questions, contact Kayla at klarc.hunt@gmail.com
