Fabulous Schooling Options Panel!

Thank you to all the wonderful speakers who came out to share their experiences with different schooling traditions and philosophies at our August meeting, "Schooling Options for the Holistic Family." We had reps from Waldorf, Reggio Emilia, Montessori, and Friends, a homeschooler, a yoga in schools instructor and two parents from Arlington. Thanks to Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment for some great info.

We had a great turnout, lots of helpful info and interesting Q&A.

Thanks to all the speakers and the members who helped out. And to AUMC for hosting!

August Panel on Schooling Options

Join us for a informative evening on Thursday, August 20 for a panel on "Schooling Options for the Holistic Family." We'll have representatives from many traditions, including Waldorf, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Friends and homeschooling and a public school parent or two.

Welcome and intros start at 6:30 p.m., a half-hour earlier than usual. We will get started with the presentations right at 7:00. Space is limited, so arrive early to get a seat! Children are always welcome at meetings, but with so many speakers in such little time, we request that parents be prepared to take a break with vocalizing babes or active toddlers. We were considering offering childcare but have not had enough interest.

Location is the Sunshine Room at the back of the sanctuary at Arlington United Methodist Church, 716 S. Glebe Rd., Arlington, VA 22204.
