|Mark your calendar now and
plan to attend the 29th Annual Fort Wayne Area Home Schools' Resource
Expo. It's a great opportunity to get a hands-on look at curricula,
to attend workshops targeted to your homeschooling needs, and to talk
with other homeschoolers. You won't want to miss it!
On Saturday the Exhibit Hall will be open from 9
a.m. - 5 p.m. in Expo Hall One of the Coliseum. Interested in looking
at curricula before you buy? The Exhibit Hall is the place to go.
And when you decide what to buy, you save postage and handling fees
on your purchases. The Exhibit Hall features booths filled with
both curricular and extracurricular materials. Featured speakers
and vendors will offer homeschooling workshops throughout the day.
There will also be at least one orientation meeting at the Expo,
so encourage prospective homeschoolers to attend.
The Friday night event is an evening designed to
help homeschooling parents make the most of the Resource Expo and
to allow them to gather information about curricula from experienced
teacher/parents, rather than salesmen. Parents, teaching in the
range from K High School, will be available to answer questions.
The Resource Expo Preview will be held at First Assembly of God
Church from 6- 9 p.m. Workshops are also being planned. Please enter
through door 15.

is only available at the door on the day of the event. The registration

and Teens - $5.00, Children (ages 3-12) - $2.00, Children two and

Memorial Coliseum are $4.00 per vehicle. You won't be able find
a more economical registration fee for a curriculum fair!
If you are on our mailing list you should receive
