Happy New Year!

Goodness it is wild how fast time goes!


I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break and is ready to dive into the new year!


We've got some fun things planned!


As a reminder, CC Events are not drop-off nor are the CC staff responsible for supervising students at these events. Parents are responsible for providing supervision of their children for every Community Connection activity, event and field trip.

Your Community Coordinator: Katie Millikan

I am so excited to be the Merced area Community Coordinator! I'm here here to help plan/facilitate events to better connect our local homeschool community! Please feel free to reach out with ideas and suggestions!
