Family Gatherings

Attention WISDOM families!

You are invited to attend a Fall Gathering in your area (or more than one, if you wish) to kick off the 2017-2018 school year. These events are a great opportunity to visit with other WISDOM families, facilitators, and Parent Advisory Council members. 

While our Spring Socials and Information Sessions are open to the public, Fall Socials/Gatherings are for WISDOM families only, giving us a chance to get to know each other as fellow home schoolers.
