Fantastic Fridays for Homeschoolers

Fantastic Fridays for Homeschoolers

Come learn with us! Fantastic Friday is for homeschoolers ages 5 and up. Each month, we’ll do an activity or have a guest speaker related to our topic. Then we’ll turn it over to any children who would like to share a project or talk about a book they’ve read. No one is required to present and we aim for a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
