What's New - Non-PPLD Homeschool Events
Do 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 email@example.com. 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.
Every Kid in a Park is a new program available starting today that’s designed to introduce America's youth and their guests to federal public lands and waters. This national program seeks to connect four million 4th graders with our country's treasured places in the 2015-16 academic year, coinciding with the National Park Service Centennial celebration. The simple form is available at www.everykidinapark.gov.
This is an amazing, first-of-its-kind opportunity to help get kids and families outside in national parks—including the excellent parks right here in Colorado—that may not be able to go without a free pass, and a great way for your library to provide the many opportunities that come with the passes!
