CR West News & Notes 2/4/17

To Know God and Make Him Known

Plant the Seed

February is the shortest month in terms of number of days, but often feels like the longest month in our homeschool year. Let February be a time in 2017 where your roots grow deeper and you rest in the growth that is happening in your children. Just like we don't see the breakdown of the seed in the soil, we often don't see the breakdown our children are going through as we continue to cultivate the soil of their hearts. And like a seed blossoms and grows into a vibrant, living being, so will our children. Read below for thoughts from one of our CC moms!

2017 The Art of Relationships

“IT IS THE GLORY OF GOD TO CONCEAL A THING: BUT THE HONOUR OF KINGS IS TO SEARCH OUT A MATTER.”

Proverbs 25:2 (NKJ)

What are the benefits of classical, Christian education? How can I give my children a classical, Christian education at home?

Join veteran homeschooling parents for three days of encouragement and inspiration as we seek to understand the classical model of education and learn how to apply it in Christian homeschooling. This year we will be digging deeper into understanding the art of relationships.

We’re excited to announce that the 2017 Parent Practicum theme will be logic!

Morning speakers will present practical tools for giving your children a classical, Christian education at home. See the grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric stages of learning in every subject and discover how every subject glorifies God. The second half of the morning will be devoted to understanding the art of relationships.

Afternoon facilitators will demonstrate practical tools for teaching investigation and debate. (Afternoon topics may vary.)

Get equipped at our on-site bookstore. You will find the resources you need to educate classically and be able to get expert advice from our book representatives.
