Maine Home Education Week

 

A special Thank You to this year's HOME Education Week Sponsor: **

Join us for Homeschool Day during Maine Home Education Week in 2018! 

 

Maine homeschoolers have worked hard over the years to raise public awareness, gain respect and credibility, build relationships within the legislature and strengthen homeschool freedoms. In recognition of the value and importance of home education, Maine Governors have designated one week each spring as Maine Home Education Week. Since 1987, Maine homeschoolers have come together during this special week in a variety of ways to celebrate and thank God for the freedoms they enjoy.   

2018 will be no exception! During the week of TBD, 2018, homeschoolers will celebrate the 31st Annual Maine Home Education Week! To mark the occasion, homeschoolers will gather at TBD.

More Home Education Week Activities

 

Celebrate Maine Home Education Week every year in your own community, too. Find ways to celebrate and be visible throughout the designated week. The following is just a sampling of activities that could be planned especially for Home Education Week within individual support groups and families:

 

  • Wear a homeschool t-shirt, sticker or button wherever you go during Home Education Week.
  • Have a potluck meal of thanksgiving with other homeschooling families.
  • Bake a celebration cake!
  • Plan a local field trip with a few families or your support group.
  • Arrange for a homeschooling display at your local library.
  • Visit a nursing home.
  • Bring a new homeschooler to visit the HOME Office and The Heart of Home Bookstore.
  • Find ways to volunteer in your community.
  • Plan a fundraiser to raise money for your support group or for HOME.
  • Buy a copy of Homeschool Heroes and read it to your family! Copies are available at the HOME Office.

 

No matter how you choose to celebrate during Maine Home Education Week, please take time to give thanks and glory to God for the very precious freedoms we have to teach our children at home. Without continued prayer, vigilance and a strong homeschool presence within each Maine community, our blessings of freedom could be easily taken away. Take pride in what you do, and enjoy your well-deserved week of recognition!
