Valley Faith Co-op (VHSA) is looking for a few good teachers for our co-op!  DATES for next year are tentatively set for: Sept 21, Oct 5 and 19, Nov 2, 16, and 30, Jan 18, Feb 1 and 15, March 1, 15, and 29, closing program 4/5 .

Summertime for the Homeschool Mom

Summertime for the Homeschool Mom Summer is different for every homeschool mom. Year Round Homeschool Mom might embrace the fact that while lessons didn’t change, recess got a whole lot more fun! Summer Break Homeschool Mom might be tempted to spend the summer making lesson plans. Unit Study Homeschool Mom is rejoicing that the bugs are back so they can finish the entomology unit. Literature Based Homeschool Mom is rejoicing that the summer reading program is practically bribing her kids to do school! Whatever your Homeschool Mom style, I pray that this summer includes lots of...

Mentor Mom Thoughts, Guest Post by Lori McCoy

I was just thinking……………. Quite a number of years ago, a friend came to me and was very broken hearted because her Daughter seemed to be wandering away from The Lord. She had made some bad decisions and my friend was very concerned about her Daughter’s future. She asked me to pray for her as she dealt with this struggle.

Before I get to that story… Every parent has hopes and dreams for their children. We also have that comparison thing...

From the Chair: As the year rounds the corner, we show no signs of slowing down here at VHSA. We have conference plans underway (see details in this newsletter, be sure to sign up early!), co-op program coming up (all families invited!), and several amazing field trips lined up. We also have graduation plans sailing along, and hope you will all join us on May 28th. Our group was even featured in the March 12th Star Herald. We are truly blessed.

From the Chair: It’s always hard to describe our Association to those who haven’t seen it. We have a large number of families, but what’s especially wonderful, is how active they are! Each family engages with the group in the unique ways that benefit the family… and the group at large. Some families are involved with the Co-op classes. They may attend and just do some room or hall monitoring as their volunteer jobs on co-op days. Other families are teaching classes or volunteering to help with extra cleaning duties. Our co-op truly is a great example of co-operation,...
