Homeschool Drop-In Days Something cheer about

The Salvation Army in Pontiac invites homeschool families to drop in and use our awesome space for active play, creative mess-making and time to make friends.

Maybe your house is getting a little cramped this winter, and you need to get out. Your kids are awesome but they need some open space...and you could use a coffee.

A conversation.

An idea or

a break.

You're not alone.

Because Bookwork is fine...until it's not.

Because kids learn best by having fun.

Because moms who homeschool aren't always homebodies. (Just sometimes).

So come to

469 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd South Pontiac, MI

every other Thursday afternoon starting January 26, 2017.

Loose schedule:

1:00-2:00 PM. concessions stand open for lattes, smoothies, hot dogs and snacks

Homeschooling is hard, but worth it. Friendship with those who "have done this for years" can make it easier...we hope that these drop in days will provide your family with the kind of support that makes homeschooling more fun, more successful without adding too much more stress or cost. .
