Homeschoolers' Back-to-School Kickoff - KALB-TV News Channel 5 & CBS 2

Homeschoolers' Back-to-School Kickoff

Posted: Updated:

BIt's Saturday, but Cenla is still thinking about school. Specifically, homeschool.

The Cenla Christian Homeschool Association hosted its annual Back-to-School Kickoff today.  All area homeschoolers were invited, as well as families wanting to learn more about homeschooling. 

Special workshops were available for new homeschoolers and parents of high schoolers.

The community came out to support, setting up booths for the public library, 4-H, Cub Scouts, organized sports and more.

Parents and kids could also browse the used book sale with plenty of workbooks and lesson plans.

Jon Haag, president of CCHSA said, "This is an opportunity for people to network and find out that there are other families out here that are homeschoolers. To get to meet some people, to get some support, to plan for their curriculum for the upcoming year, and to find out what social activities are available for the kids."

CCHSA represents more than 400 area homeschoolers.
