PCHEA

Pottawatomie Christian Home Educators Association

We are Christianin orientation and leadership, as are most of our members, but we do not exclude anyone from membership on the basis of their doctrinal beliefs.

We are home educators*committed to helping each other accomplish our educational goals, to support one another in love and to strengthen and promote quality home education in our area.

We are families who espouse various educational philosophies, use a wide spectrum of curricula, and teach children at many levels from pre-school through high school.

We are one of many groupsaffiliated with OCHEC - Oklahoma Central Home Educator’s Consociation (www.ochec.com)

*PCHEA believes that homeschooling is the privately funded, home-based education of children by their parents or guardians. Therefore, we do not provide membership to families participating in government-funded virtual, charter, or any public school at home programs. If your family needs help in transitioning from a government-funded program, we would like to assist you with information and support.

All members should conduct themselves at all times in a way that honors God. This includes affirming the biblical definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24, Mark 10:6-9)

Moms' Night Out

 
Whether you are a new homeschooling mom or a veteran homeschooler, we all need encouragement. We strongly believe that receiving mentoring in our lives makes a big difference between giving up and holding fast. We hope to help aid homeschooling moms, especially new ones, and likewise encourage veteran homeschoolers, as we "encourage one another, and build up one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
         

Mom's Night Out allows a natural environment for mentoring, encouragement, and fellowship to occur for PCHEA moms.  We have  Mom's Night Out one weekday evening a month.  Some of them will be social, some will be workshops, and some will be panel discussions. All will hopefully help homeschooling moms to "..not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

Box Tops



 

Collect Box Tops and earn money for PCHEA!

 
Please continue to clip and collect Box Tops.  In previous years, PCHEA has earned funds through Box Top! With our earnings, PCHEA members were able to take a field trip with the Creation Truth Foundation at the Sam Noble Museum.  Also, we have been able to provide events such as the Father Daughter Dance, Awards Night, and other activities at a free or low cost to our members.  We have also been able to provide valuable resources on getting started to new homeschooling families.  

"We all shop for groceries, sometimes two or three times a week –- or more. Now turn those shopping trip into easy cash for your school, and encourage friends to do the same! Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper® and Kleenex®, in almost every aisle of the store. All you need to do is clip and send them to your school’s Box Tops coordinator —- each one is worth 10¢ for your school. "

Drama Connection

Why drama? Drama can be used in ministry, helps build confidence, improves communication skills, promotes team work, creates a sense of empathy and the ability to relate to others, aids in the development of leadership skills, and champions self-control and personal discipline. These skills are important in life as well as valued by future employers.
