Not Back-to-School Picnic:
September 5, 2014 at Trout Brook Reservation, Holden
About 90 people attended our first Not Back-to-School Picnic last year at Trout Brook Reservation in Holden, Mass. It was a great time of fun and fellowship. We're planning another one and hope to see you there.
Stay tuned here for further details.
Used Curriculum Sale:
June 28, 2014
Our annual Used Curriculum Sale was held on June 28 at Chapel of the Cross in Westboro, conveniently located near the Massachusetts Turnpike and routes 9 and 495. The sale is one of the highlights of our year, full of bargains and eager shoppers, as hundreds of homeschoolers seek out bargains to supply their needs for another year. Every year thousand of items, including loads of free ones, find new homes. For more information see www.masshope.org/ucs.
Our 25th Annual Convention - "Keeping Your House in Order: a Generational Vision" - April 24-26, 2014
What a great time we had this year with keynote speaker Voddie Baucham, featured speaker Lou Priolo, and much, much more. You missed a great time if you weren't there. Recordings can be ordered from our convention page. Plan now to be there next year. The dates are April 23-25, 2015.
High School Graduation:
Our formal graduation ceremony was held at Holden Chapel in Holden, Massachusetts at 2:00 PM on June 7, 2014. We celebrated this milestone for more than 40 homeschool graduates. What an encouragement it was to those still running the race. What a testimony it was to God's faithfulness as another fine group moves on to the next stage of their lives.
This is an issue of great importance to homeschoolers everywhere. Parental rights are increasingly threatened as more members of our judiciary begin to take cues from international law and custom. These are decidedly unfriendly to homeschooling. For more information and to join the battle to preserve parental rights, please visit www.parentalrights.org.
MassHOPE opposes any federal or state funding initiatives to support charter schools or other types of “public school at home” programs. Such programs undermine total educational freedom of parents. For further information on this subject, we suggest the DVD "The Trojan Horse" which explains these programs from our perspective. The DVD is available for $7 from MassHOPE. Order by mail from MassHOPE, 46 South Road, Holden, MA 01520 or call us at 508-829-0973.
