Indiana--Don't Miss Homeschool Day at the Capitol

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Next week there is an exciting event all homeschool families should
take advantage of. The Indiana Association of Home Educators (IAHE)
will be hosting the 2008 Homeschool Day at the Capitol at in
Indianapolis on Monday, February 11.

The Homeschool Day at the Capitol is a vital event for homeschoolers
across the state, as it provides an opportunity for Indiana
legislators to meet home-educated students and their parents. Whenever
a homeschool issue comes up before the legislature, many
representatives will remember the personal contact they have had with
bright and well-behaved homeschool families.

On February 11, a full slate of activities are planned for the whole
family. The events will begin at 9 a.m. with an orientation and
legislative briefing in Convention Center Room 109. Here you will you
will learn about current issues and bills that matter to home
educators. You will also be given timely information on how to
approach your legislators.

The main event will start at noon with a rally in the North Atrium of
State House. During this time, you will hear from several speakers,
including state leaders like Eric Miller, founder of
Advance America; Micah Clark from the American Family Association of
Indiana; members of the legislature; and others.

Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to visit with your
state senator and representative as well as self-guided or arranged
tours of the Indiana State House. It is best to schedule an
appointment in advance to visit your legislators that afternoon. To
determine who your legislators are, go to HSLDA's Legislative Toolbox
at: http://www.hslda.org/toolbox .

To see more information on all of the activities planned for the 2008
Indiana Homeschool Day at the Capitol please go to:

find all of the information you will need for you and your family to
participate in all of the exciting events on February 11.

Please plan now to attend the Homeschool Day at the Capitol with your
whole family. Thank you for your support and work towards making
Indiana an even better state to homeschool our children in.

Sincerely,

Thomas J. (Tj) Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
