FOR PARENTS – High School Planning: Record Keeping Simplified – Jan 26

(12:30pm; led by Laurie Fraher; $2 for copies) – Registration Deadline Jan 22nd

Why keep records? We work hard homeschooling and I see my record box as OUR trophy for our accomplishments.   Also… if you move, some state laws require proof of education, and colleges might want a portfolio review and you will have all you will need at your fingertips when you write your transcript. In this seminar we will create a record box for your student and give you tips on how to work towards a great transcript.  Participants will need to bring their own supplies (see list below) and there is a small copy fee of $2.

Supplies to bring with you:  a carry file box (staples have them), hanging file folders (need between 27-30) can be colored but not necessary, file folders 12 to start  (colored or manila), file tabs to label, and a pen.
