Starting a Homeschool Group Newsletter

Communication is key!

Starting a newsletter for your homeschool group is a great way to create a cozy feeling within your group. Not everybody can participate in everything, but they like knowing what's going on.

The simplest way to start is with a calendar of events. They can post this on their fridge or in another visible place.

You can add articles about the upcoming activities in your homeschool group. This keeps people informed, boosts involvement and builds excitement.

The newsletter is a great place to interview members of your group so that everyone gets to know one another and feel like family.

If your members feel connected to more than one other family, they will keep coming back.

You can find calendar and newsletter templates on Publisher and Word that can make your newsletter come alive. We hope these ideas are a help to you. Got questions? Just ask.
