NEW RIVER VALLEY OF VIRGINIA
Find Out What's Going On in the Homeschool Community in the New River Valley of Virginia and Beyond
Send me an email to get an event added to this list. I don't post all classes. But I do post free intros to classes.
NEW RIVER VALLEY VIRGINIA HOMESHOOL YAHOO GROUPS (open to everyone):
These lists talk about many topics including: suggested curriculum,
hikes and other social outings, courses being offered, free entry
to cultural events and performances at the Lensic and other locations,
plus much more.
If you choose to become a member of any of these message boards,
once you are approved for membership, you can set up your account
to either receive all messages as they come or get a daily digest - which I find much more convenient.
The number of messages being sent ebbs and flows. Sometimes there
is nothing happening on any of the boards. Other times you feel
like you are being flooded with information. Summer tends to be
quieter than winter. The first of a new school year is usually
- firstname.lastname@example.org - Explore_Now - mostly Radford, but definitely includes people from all over the New River Valley.
- email@example.com – HENRV - Home Educators New River Valley – by far the largest local board. The place most groups list field trips and events because of the larger audience. They offer a monthly homeschool skate and a homeschool bowling day in Cburg.
- firstname.lastname@example.org - Floyd - for events and gatherings in and around Floyd.
- email@example.com - Pulaski County Virginia - called Pulaski but has families from everywhere. Has park days at Randolph Park in Dublin (weather permitting), meet in Pulaski and Radford for history, creativity project, PeaceJam, art, and other programs, sometimes have mom's night out, as well as teen and other events. If we have things planned, we tend to talk about them on the Facebook page below - especially when determining if anyone plans to attend park day, time changes and other details, etc. (email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to this list)

Most homeschoolers in the Santa Fe area stay informed about
events by becoming members of one of the following groups.
Home Learning Community of Santa Fe
New Mexico Homeschool Community
Santa Fe Homeschool Association
Both Santa Fe groups have have over 100 members. The New Mexico
list has many more. Some famlies choose to be on more than one
list so they don't miss anything.
