About the Event
November – Can you have a peaceful & productive homeschool day?
Guest Speaker: Rosaleen Milner
We all hold the hope of a beautiful homeschooling journey. We long to provide a peaceful learning experience for our children along with healthy family dynamics and productive home-life. So often though the reality of real life with real people can topple the beautiful vision leaving us feeling defeated and overwhelmed. Can a balance be found between the often-tense crossroads of heart and home, teaching and training, peace and productivity? This is a daily struggle to be sure. Years of homeschooling a large family has taught me some valuable lessons towards simplifying and structuring the homeschool day; so that the richness of these years can be enjoyed and treasured.
Roots AGM 2020 - This will begin after the above support group meeting has ended at 8pm
What is the purpose of the AGM? As many of you know, when you joined Roots, you did not just join another homeschool board, but you became a member of the Roots CHEF society. As a member you are given voting rights, a voice within Roots, regarding the decisions that are being made for this school year for Roots.
The AGM is coordinated every year in accordance to our society bylaws, which requires 10% (25 families for 2020), of all eligible voting members to come together to discuss any pertinent information about Roots for the coming school year. You will be asked to vote on the proposed budget, any newly nominated board of directors (these will be announced in our AGM report) and will also be given the opportunity to ask questions. You can expect the AGM report to be sent to you via e-mail in mid October, please take the time to review this information. Families are given one vote per household. If you are able, please plan to attend this meeting either virtually or in person.
This is a private event and NOT open to the general public or drop-ins. Advance RSVP is required to attend. You must be registered Roots family.
Common Questions about Support Group Meetings
Roots recognizes that our monthly support group meetings have been instrumental in developing the Roots community. These meetings have been highly anticipated through the years, and the relationships that have been developed through our coffee and prayer times cannot be replaced.
What happens at support group meetings?
This is a time for Roots parents and children to come together to enjoy one another’s company while supporting each other on our homeschooling journey. Our meetings follow a basic format of announcements, devotional, main topic/ discussion and ends with small group prayer time.
Can I bring my children?
For the start of the 2020 season, due to COVID-19 restrictions, children are not allowed to attend the evening in person meetings.
Do face coverings need to be worn in places of worship (support meetings)?
This is a private event - we are only accepting members who have registered. Each member is asked to sign in and we will have name tags available, seeing as most of us are new to Roots. As part of being a private event attendees are not required to wear a mask.
Where can I park?
Please park in the community parking lot, not the school.
Things to Note:
- Roots will encourage the practice of physical distancing for all indoor activities.
- We are responsible for keeping the facility clean.
- Please bring separate footwear if the weather is inclement.
