More: Starting a Homeschool Group Newsletter

Make things as easy as possible for the others reading your newsletter.

When you are putting together and publishing the coming events, an actual calendar look with the dates and holidays is so much easier than a list of dates.

While the list of activities may look nice and be less work for you to compile and type, it's not easier on your homeschool group families. They will have to copy the list onto their own calendar. This is an extra step that some families may never get around to doing.

With your calendar, they can just display it on the fridge or bulletin board. Then referring to it is a snap. More than likely, they will then take the time to read your exciting descriptions and attend the featured functions.

May you have a successful homeschool support group!

Happy Thanksgiving!
