High School to College
Join the Robbins Library for Homeschooling High School to College,
Wednesday, January 4, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. This presentation is
intended for those currently homeschooling, as well as parents
and teens interested in homeschooling high school. Topics to be
covered include examples of what homeschooling high school can
look like when you operate without an outside curriculum and keep
your own records; why it can be a smart choice; resources and
support; a timeline for homeschooling high school with college
in mind, including figuring out where to apply, keeping records,
grades, testing, preparing a portfolio, resumé and transcript.
Handouts will be available and an opportunity for questions will
follow the presentation.
Presented by Sophia Sayigh, a founder and director of Advocates
for Home Education in Massachusetts, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3)
charitable educational organization that gathers and disseminates
information about homeschooling in Massachusetts through education,
advocacy, and events.

Salons Are Back!
Come partake in lively, stimulating discussion with fellow homeschooling
parents and teens in a relaxed, friendly environment. Each gathering
will feature a different topic.
On Wednesday, January 18, 2012 the topic will be "Avoiding
Homeschool Burnout." The house is a mess, the kids are eating
cereal for dinner, you're burning through two tanks of gas a week,
and you can't find a free day to fit in a field trip. Sound familiar?
The abundance of resources available to homeschoolers can be both
a blessing and a curse. Where and how do you draw the line? Join
us for a lively discussion about how to avoid overscheduling,
stress reduction and coping strategies for busy lives, the importance
of setting priorities, the value of free time, as well as examining
expectations for ourselves and our kids.
next topic will be "Rebel, Rebel: Being a Free Thinker in
a Culture of Conformity" in March.
The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 18 at
7:30 PM in the Community Room at Whole Foods, 340 River St., Cambridge,
MA. If you want, you can purchase soups, salads, sandwiches, hot
and cold entrees, baked goods, and drinks at Whole Foods. Please

discussion will be geared toward adults, so we ask that you leave

loving caregiver. Interested teens are welcome to attend.
