Classical Conversations NE Philly

Upcoming Community Day: October 1, 2015

Home-educators striving together to know and make God known!


This week, a suggested presentation is to describe a trip that you have taken. You may use a classroom map to demonstrate your route and describe what you did and saw. We will be focusing on using appropriate volume in presenting- project loudly enough to be heard across the room, but without yelling.

Due to a missing ballot box last week, the vote for the favorite fun days will take place this week! Students and parents are invited to find the ballot box in the foyer and vote for your top three fun days.
  • Pajama Day

A Few Words of Encouragement

I often get a little teary when I hear this song. I look back on many of my first years as a home-educating mom as the "survival years." At just the right time, God directed us to Classical Conversations of NE Philly, and our family entered a new season in our homeschooling journey. Not that our educational endeavors are without struggle, but our effort has found a focus and our hearts have found encouragement in this wonderful community that the Lord has provided in all of you.

I remember this song playing on the radio as we drove to our first CC community day. I remember it with thankfulness for the rich resources He has given us, not just in the task of raising these precious souls He has placed in our care, but for all of life, as we grow to know Him and are privileged to make Him known.

"His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence," -I Peter 1:3
