Washington: Your Attendance Needed
at Home Educators' Day at the Capitol

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

In two weeks there is an exciting event in Olympia all homeschool
families should take advantage of. The annual Home Educators' Day at
the Capitol event will take place on April 9, 2009, and will be hosted
by the Christian Homeschool Network and Christian Heritage Home
Educators of Washington.

The Home Educators' Day at the Capitol is vitally important for
homeschoolers across the state, as it provides an opportunity for
Washington legislators to meet home-educated students and their
parents. In our personal experience, well-attended homeschool events
at the state Capitol can have a major impact on protecting homeschool
freedom. 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 April 9, a full day of activities are planned for the whole family.
The day's events will begin at 8:30 a.m. with prayer in the Columbia
Room in the Capitol. Check-in begins at 9:00 a.m. with an orientation
and legislative briefing at 9:30. 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 11:30 with a Home Educators' Celebration
"Under the Dome" in the Rotunda of the Capitol. During this time you
will hear from several speakers, including several state legislators.

To participate in the morning activities, you will need to register
with the Christian Homeschool Network. A packet of materials with a
registration form can be found here:

Additional opportunities throughout the day will include possible
visits with your local legislators or participating in arranged tours
(by reservation only) of the Washington Capitol. You are encouraged 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: .

To see more information on all of the activities planned for the 2009
Washington Home Educators' Day at the Capitol please go to: . You will find all of the
information you will need for you and your family to participate in
all of the exciting events on April 9. Hurry and register your family
for a fun and exciting day at the Capitol!

Please plan now to attend the Home Educators' Day at the Capitol with
your whole family. Your attendance at the Capitol on Home Educators'
Day can help ensure a great turnout and protect homeschooling freedom
in Washington state.

-> Remember the last time you wrote a term paper?

Research can be grueling-digging through archives, wading through
articles, conducting interviews. But if it's related to
homeschooling, you can relax a little. There's a good chance that
you'll find what you're looking for in HSLDA's bimonthly
Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.
