Pottawatomie County Home Educators Association
We are Christian…In orientation and leadership, as are most of our members, but we do not exclude anyone from membership on the basis of their 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 diverse…Families from all walks of life. Families in our group 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 groups…affiliated with Oklahoma Central Home Educators Consociation – OCHEC * (www.ochec.com)
*(OCHEC defines the terms ‘home education’, ‘homeschooling’, and ‘home schooling’ exclusively as the privately funded, home-based education and discipleship of children by their own parents or guardians.)We communicate through email and the web:

Mom's Night Out - Oct. 12
Just want to remind you all that Mom's Night is starting up again on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month. We will be meeting at Heritage Church at 7:00. Feel free to come later than that, we are there for a couple of hours so you are welcome to walk in later.
Our discussion topic this month is "Fun Picture Books". Please bring in one or two of your family's favorites. They could be holiday books, or just a favorite story that get read over and over. Picture books apeal to a wide range of children, even older children enjoy them and can benefit from the short story plots when studying literary elements such as plot, character, theme, setting etc. We will look at these books, discuss for a while and then you'll be free to chat as you like!!!
Looking forward to seeing you all,
