  Exploring Families Used Curriculum Sale... August 1st

JUNE 2012

CHEE USED CURRICULUM FAIR...  Tuesday, June 19th,  10am - 2pm.  Once again, homeschoolers will enjoy a great opportunity to shop and purchase gently used homeschool resources from one another.  For almost 20 years, I always look forward to a homeschool curriculum sale.  In addition to the books, curriculum, and other resources, it does the homeschool soul good to connect with old friends and make a few new ones.    See newsletter for location details.
