What does "all-inclusive" mean?
We used the term all-inclusive in our group description because we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, nationality, political views, or teaching style. In fact, we welcome diversity in hopes that our group has a broad appeal. We all have homeschooling in common; that is our focus and is what brings us together. Our goal is to have a cohesive and safe group that offers fun, friendship and learning opportunities for our homeschooled kids, as well us parents.
Is there a membership fee?
No, there is no fee to join PHLiC. Fees associated with planned group activities are collected by the person coordinating the activity.
How does the group work?
PHLiC's main place to "connect" online is via our email list on Google Groups. Here you will see discussions and events, as well as, be able to ask questions and get information to help you get started getting involved. We also keep an updated Google calendar of group events, and we have use Facebook for back-up communication and sharing photos. Lastly, we use Google Drive to share some files, create RSVP spreadsheets, when needed, and share information. All this info is available in the "new member info" doc when you sign-up!
What if I want to plan an activity, but don't know where to start?
Just post your thoughts to the group email list. Veteran members will be happy to brainstorm with you and walk you through the process of planning an activity. There is also a file in the files section to help you get started!
