Parent conference to focus on homeschooling
Free sessions inform and encourage Christian parents
May 14-16, 2019 - Shasta Way Christian Church
Klamath Falls, OR—Veteran home educators will lead three days of training, May 14-16, 2019, designed to inform and encourage parents who are homeschooling or are interested in homeschooling.
The free conference will be held at Shasta Way Christian Church at 5835 Shasta Way in Klamath Falls, OR and is hosted by the Klamath Falls Community of Classical Conversations®, an educational resource for Christian homeschoolers. Although the conference is free, participants need to register at www.parentpracticum.com.
The theme of the conference is “Returning to Roots and Reason: the Art of Mathematics.” It offers keys to more than just learning languages. The conference will bring together dozens of families interested in exploring the classical model of education and finding tools that make learning different subjects with their children possible. Conference participants will practice time-tested teaching techniques and learn how to open lines of communication with their children that make acquiring knowledge and everyday conversations easier.
Erika DuVal, a homeschool mom who attended a parent conference in Klamath Falls last year, said, “A Parent Conference is a pep rally, a Bible study and a college course all rolled into three days!”
While parents learn, their children can learn, too. Low-cost day camps ($49 per child) are available for children of attendees, kindergarten to teen. Camps include nursery and play camps for younger children, memorizing and drawing the world in geo-drawing camp or learning about fun ways to play with Math in academic camps for older students. Advance registration for student camps is required.
