I am not certain how it happened, but I am going to have my first high school student this fall. Cue the deer in the headlights look . . . tears . . . a sigh . . . and then the excitement! Although the high school years bring me closer to one of my children leaving home and no longer being a part of my every day, it is a time full of new experiences and many firsts for him that will set the foundation for the rest of his life. If you are not already where I am, one day, you will be here. If you have already crossed this path, you understand. It is a bittersweet moment, especially since we have homeschooled from the beginning. I have had the opportunity to be my son’s primary teacher over the last nine years and watch him learn and grow into a wonderful young man. Both of us are ready for the next step on our journey as we homeschool through high school.
I created Homeschool Roster with the hope to provide an online listing of educational and fun activities and events for West Tennessee homeschoolers. As transplants to the area, we did not have the connections or familiarity with our new surroundings when we moved here. There are so many opportunities in West Tennessee and we often found out about them after they happened. We were missing out on some wonderful experiences. Through Homeschool Roster, I have been able to stay informed and not miss out on anything. Homeschool Roster has also become a great resource for other homeschool families. I want to enter and continue through the high school years just as informed and realize there are other parents out there like me. I also know there are many of you who have knowledge to share. That is why I created High School Happenings 4 Homeschoolers.
High School Happenings 4 Homeschoolers is an online group and resource created for parents of high school homeschool students. The high school years open many new opportunities for your child. There are special programs, internships, workshops, camps, proms, scholarships, get-togethers, sports, dual enrollment, athletics and more. High School Happenings 4 Homeschoolers is the place where I will share the opportunities I learn about and hope you will do the same in the group. High school is about the academics, but it is not all about the academics. As your child is working their way through high school preparing for college or life after graduation, make sure they do not miss out on opportunities along the way that are just for them.
The base for High School Happenings 4 Homeschoolers is Tennessee and those events will be shared in the closed group. Opportunities outside of the state may also be shared in the closed group and I will share some I find on the public page. So, come on over and join me at High School Happenings 4 Homeschoolers, so your high school child does not miss out!
