Homeschool Day at the Capitol will showcase homeschool talent

The Homeschool Day at the Capitol began during the 1980’s  when my children were little, and Arizona legislators were trying to make the law harder on homeschooling families.  The purpose is to meet the legislators, provide them with a positive image of home educators, and enjoy participating in an event with homeschoolers from around the state.

 

Homeschoolers from across the state are invited to join us for a fun, family-friendly, interactive event hosted by Arizona Families for Home Education.  Highlights include:

 

  • Governor Brewer will issue a “Homeschool Week” proclamation.
  • Enjoy several musical performances showcasing the talents of homeschool groups.
  • Hear a few legislators share thoughts and encouragement with the crowd.
  • Participate in singing patriotic songs and saying the Pledge of Allegiance together.
  • Lunch will be provided for a nominal fee – or you can bring your own picnic lunch.
  • Bring your lawn chairs or picnic blankets to sit on.
  • Listen to recitations of patriotic poems from a number of winners from AFHE’s Poetry Contest.

WHEN:  Tuesday, March 2, 2010

WHERE:  Arizona State Capitol lawn, Downtown Phoenix, 17th Avenue and Jefferson

RSVP REQUIRED:  homeschool@afhe.org – Please let us know how many adults and children from your family will be attending, and if you will be having lunch or bringing your own picnic.   RSVP is required so we can plan enough supplies and food.  Please put HOMESCHOOL DAY AT THE CAPITOL in the subject line of your email.
