WISDOM Featured by Elfster
Popular gift-exchange generator Elfster recently interviewed Terry, one of our home school consultants and author of our Terry's TLC newsletter about helping to build meaningful connections while dealing with pandemic restrictions.
School-aged children have certainly been hit with challenges this past year, especially when it comes to connecting with the people they love the most. Not only have they been temporarily cut off from beloved grandparents and special family members, but when the global COVID-19 pandemic hit and schools closed their doors to in-person learning, their usual hub of activity shifted, leaving kids craving connections with classmates and friends.
Terry selflessly saw the need to foster relationships and help this homeschool community make meaningful connections. She was excited to think of something that would help during these difficult times — even a little.
2021 Graduation Ceremony
Are you finishing your home schooling journey this year? We invite you to be part of our online 2021 graduation ceremony.
The event will begin at 1:30pm with a short program, followed by a slideshow highlighting our graduates. Your name and photo may be included in the slideshow, or only your name if you prefer. Please sign up early to reserve your spot!
We regret that we are not gathering in person for a graduation this year, but encourage you to still find a way celebrate this milestone with your family, in addition to this event.
Our office will be closed from Good Friday through April 9. There are no online courses from April 2-8, resuming on the 9th. Our office team will be back on April 12. Have a wonderful Easter!

Home School Gatherings
Thank you to all parents and home schooling advocates who have persisted in speaking up for what their children need; the Government of Alberta has recently made a change in COVID-19 restrictions in order to recognize home school cohort groups, allowing established groups and home school co-ops to gather for learning activities, physical education, etc.
