What's New - Non-PPLD Homeschool Events

RSSDo you know of a community program for homeschoolers? Is your group holding an event that is open to all homeschoolers? Do you want to hear about upcoming opportunities for your family in the Colorado Springs area? If you answered “yes!” to any of these questions then this is the place for you! This blog is for homeschool programs, classes, etc. not sponsored by PPLD.

To have something posted contact Corrie at cbaker@ppld.org. She will need all the necessary information two weeks in advance. Be sure to include: what it is, who can attend, when it is (date and time), where it is, and who to contact. If any pertinent information is missing it will not be posted.
