YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF EiE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PARK DAY.  OPEN TO ALL HOMESCHOOLERS.

DATES:  Every Thursday

TIME:  12:00 Noon to whenever…………….

Excellence In Education (EiE) is sponsoring this park day to meet the needs of not only our diverse families that homeschool in a variety of ways and methods but also to all families in the area.  The primary purpose is to provide a relaxed and reasonably unstructured environment for all families to meet each other and make new friends.

The value of park days are numerous:

For the Parent:
Provides a great venue to meet other parents, share victories and even receive good ideas on how to solve problems from other caring parents.  This park day will provide the parent with an environment free from the ever increasing structured demands from so many other homeschool venues.  Take a break from the stress and actually relax for one day every  week.

For the younger children:
One of the interesting components of learning is that there is a definite correlation between physical maturity and academic readiness.  It is very important for the child to have a place to improve his gross and fine motor skills.  What a better place than a park!  Also, kids just love going to the park.  I dare you to remember the fine times you had as a child at the park.

For the Teen:
A sad but increasingly popular trend within the teen world is the “virtual” world of the internet.  More and more we are encountering teens that spend more time on the computer (no personal interaction) and less time interacting face to face with other people.  This park day will provide a venue for the teens to actually physically interact with each other.

While we highly recommend an “unstructured” park day environment we will be providing some athletic items for the attendees to use.  If you the parent, or your children want to plan a special activity that is fantastic.

Bring your children, imagination, food, blankets, chairs and have a great time.
