Homeschool Connection

Homeschool Connection is an inclusive, secular community of families with children learning at home on the Kitsap Peninsula. This Yahoo Group is intended as administrative support to a face-to-face homeschool community, not the primary community. We gather for monthly activity days, park days, and field trips – as well as special events like family potlucks, dances, and talent shows.
Our governing principles are safety, respect, cooperation, and FUN! Group decisions are by consensus and all members are encouraged to participate in the process. We welcome diversity and trust that our members are respectful and tolerant of each other’s religious and political beliefs, life choices, and homeschool style.
