Welcome to the Central Valley Homeschoolers blog. We've created this blog to help homeschoolers stay connected, and as a place to announce upcoming field trips or other activities. If you would like to host an event or organize an activity, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to email us and we'll be sure to post all events as they are brought to our attention. We will also be posting activities that might interest the homeschooling community. If you are aware of any events that you haven't seen mentioned here, please let us know and we'll be sure to post it. Keep us bookmarked us and check back often. All our events are also listed on Facebook in the Annapolis Valley Homeschoolers group. Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

March Schedule

Here is our schedule for March. I hope you can make it out to some or all of our planned events. In case of bad weather I will send an email out to confirm or you can always call me to be sure. Also, if you know someone who would like to join us, please forward this message on.
Also, if you are an UNSCHOOLER or know someone who is and is interested in forming an unschooling support group, please email me directly as a few of us are starting one up on Mondays here in the Valley.

Finally, Laura Churchill Duke who helps out with the Homeschooling Play Group asked me to forward this information. It's a FANTASTIC resource to families in the valley.

Have you ever wondered what to do with your family on any given weekend, or how to spend a rainy day? Wish there was one consolidated place that housed information relevant for families living in the Annapolis Valley?www.valleyfamilyfun.ca is a new resource created by Laura Churchill Duke that houses information relevant to families. Included is everything from an events calendar showing happenings for each day, ideas for March Break and rainy days, links to recreational and artistic endeavours, and lists of resources and support systems for families in the Annapolis Valley.

For more information, to subscribe, or to suggest ideas for the website, visit www.valleyfamilyfun.ca or emailvalleyfamilyfun@gmail.com.

Thanks! See you soon.

Wednesday, March 14th - 10AM - Because we love good food (and we love Acadia University too) we will be participating in a food lab with the Nutrition Department. The goal of the workshop is to provide a fun, hands on activity that promotes healthy eating, and family togetherness while providing parents with healthful nutrition related tips that they can utilize at home. This event is only open to 25 kids so PLEASE pre-register. Please include information about food allergies when you register.

Wednesday, March 21st - 10AM - Live Music at Ocean Spirit Studios! A real treat as Andy and Niamah Webster (the folks that do the super fun Ceilidhs) perform kids music for all ages. Their website is here but they will be performing for us at Ocean Spirit Studio. https://www.facebook.com/events/335694183138601/

Wednesday, March 28th - 10AM - Meet at Valley Waste Resource Management for a tour. This tour is approximately 90 mins long and the kids can see the all the different areas of the transfer station as well as the Scotia recycling facility where they sort and bale all the various recyclable products. We go over what happens to their waste, what it is later made into and why it is important to reduce the amount of waste we get.
