PEACH holds 3-4 general meetings from August through
May each school year. Speakers, events and programs are designed to encourage
and educate homeschooling parents. The meetings are generally
held on the third Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30
a monthly e-newsletter. The PEACH Newsletter and PEACH Flash keep our members
up-to-date with field trips, activities, opportunities for service
and homeschooling in the news, as well as accepting articles and
ads from our members.
PEACH Flashes are sent out via email to provide information, recommendations, and items of interest to our PEACH Members. These are sent out as needed during the school year from August through May.
PEACH is currently working with Club Express to develop this function. In the near future, we hope to provide member names, addresses
and phone numbers, as well as ages
of children, curriculum in use, and family interests and hobbies. This will be for members only. You may currently go to your member profile and edit what information is shared with other members via the Member Directory.
PEACH teens can participate in a bi-monthly Book Club. Teens can also participate in bi-weekly Bible Study, and in our Drama Club. We also offer several monthly activities for teens to choose from like, these events are available to members only through our members group! Don't see an event you'd like to see? Have a great idea? Contact us through email, or let us know at one of our PEACH meetings!
