From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:


On Monday, August 3, at 9:00 p.m. (ET), Homeschooling pioneers Rick
and Marilyn Boyer offer a scriptural method for passing on the vision
of powerful Christian living from generation to generation through
family discipleship. Find advice and encouragement in this webinar.


On Tuesday, August 4, at 9:00 p.m. (ET), HSLDA Early Years coordinator
Vicki Bentley will help you prioritize your family's home education
and focus your organizational efforts. Don't miss Part II of "Getting
Organized: Creating a Lifestyle Learning Environment"! Bringing a
wealth of practical tips and advice, Vicki will address some of the
organizational challenges unique to homeschoolers. (If you missed the
first session in Vicki's "Getting Organized" series, don't worry! You
can access the recorded e-vent through our archives link at


On Wednesday, HSLDA attorney Tj Schmidt will address homeschool legal
issues specific to the state of Florida. Learn how to successfully
navigate policies and regulations regarding compulsory school age,
notice of intent, scholarship reports, and attendance records. If
you're an HSLDA member in the Sunshine State, you won't want to miss
this helpful webinar at 3:00 p.m. (ET)!

Before mass compulsory schooling, students learned to investigate,
reason, and form independent opinions. On Wednesday, August 5, at 9:00
p.m. (ET), author Rick Boyer shares the exciting ways that today's
home educating parents have continued that tradition by getting beyond
packaged curriculum to help their children experience real books, real
experiences, real relationships--real learning!


Then, on Thursday, August 6 at 9:00 p.m., discover how the Greek
tradition of progymnasmata can give your children a classical
understanding of writing and oratory. Author and teacher Kathy Weitz
explores this incorporative method of teaching to make writing a
versatile tool in your children's education, with a focus on the
beginning stages of writing instruction from 3rd to 7th grade.

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.
- National City, CA

HSLDA members since 1993, our membership is just as important to
us as our children's curriculum. Thank you HSLDA for all you do on
our behalf! - West Valley, NY
