Washington: Your Attendance is Needed
for the Homeschool Day at the Capitol!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Washington is a state of relatively broad freedom when it comes to
home education. However, that could always change with the
introduction of a negative bill by a legislator who doesn't understand
or support home education. While the Christian Homeschool Network
(CHN) works "on the ground" in Olympia to help HSLDA monitor
legislation and protect home education freedom, you can help too.

One thing you can do to help ensure the continued freedom of home
education in Washington for your family and for future generations is
to attend the annual Homeschool Day at the Capitol on February 25.
When legislators see hundreds of energetic homeschool families touring
the Capitol with their bright-eyed children, it makes homeschooling
more real to them, and it is more difficult for them to vote against
home education should a negative bill come up. For more information
about the Home Education Day at the Capitol visit: .

CHN works hard monitoring legislation and keeping up relationships
with legislators. Your presence will help boost attendance at the
Homeschool Day at the Capitol and will be vital in protecting home
education freedom in Washington.

Today is the last day for early registration! While you can come if
you haven't registered, early registration is strongly encouraged and
helps pay for the event. Registration allows you to participate in
several special presentations on current legislation, tips on meeting
with your legislator, Civics 101 (for youth on up), homeschool vision
and other topics. Your registration also enables you to participate in
several organized Capitol tours.

Another thing you can do is to volunteer to bring an apple pie to give
to the legislators. This has been very well received in the past. More
pies are needed for this year, so please visit to volunteer.


1) Come to the Capitol on February 25, 2010, to participate in
Homeschool Day at the Capitol.

2) If you can't come to the Home Education Day at the Capitol, please
pray for the event.


Last year several hundred homeschoolers showed up for Homeschool Day
at the Capitol. Bring your family and help make this year's event even
bigger. We need a large turnout to help demonstrate that the movement
for home education freedom in Washington is strong!

If you are not yet a member of HSLDA and would like to help us fight

Thank you for your part in fighting for freedom in Washington! Feel
free to forward this to your friends who are homeschooling but may not
be part of HSLDA.
