If you live in the Crossroads and plan on teaching your child at home, there are a few events that you may want to mark on your calendar.

The Crossroads Home Educated Children (CHEC) Activity Fair - At the beginning of each school year, our local homeschool organization hosts an activity fair which allows area homeschoolers an opportunity to see what all is available for the homeschool community. Families can go to sign up for field trips, classes, or to be a part of the CHEC yearbook staff. Families can also learn more about and sign up to participate in Victoria Cobra Athletics, our local competitive homeschool sports program. The event is free and it's a great opportunity to meet other families who are "teaching their own" and to join Crossroads Home Educated Children. I would recommend joining our local organization so that your family doesn't miss out on area opportunities like drama, local co-ops, prom, homecoming, and important announcements. Don't miss this event! Details: Monday, August 27, 7:00-8:30pm, at First Christian Church. More details can be found on the CHEC website.

Crossroads Home Educated Children (CHEC) Back to School Party - Wednesday, September 5, 2:00-4:00pm. Visit the CHEC website or attend the activity fair for more details.

These two events will be a great way to kick off your school year.
