Homeschool informational meetings coming in July

Three Homeschool Informational Meetings will be held throughout Muskegon County during the month of July. These will be presented for those who have questions about homeschooling, who wonder if homeschooling might be right for their family, for those who wonder if a two-parent working family could still homeschool, and for those who would like more information so they can make the right choice for their family.

Laurie Hawkins, veteran homeschooler and long-term co-op organizer and leader, will share the ins and outs of homeschooling, the legal aspects, and will answer many questions for those curious or wanting to explore other options for their family.

Prospective homeschoolers are welcome to attend to one or all of the following:

• Tuesday, July 13 at Bridge Church, 5035 Henry St. Norton Shores;

• Tuesday, July 20, at New Beginnings, 1830 White Lake Drive, Whitehall;
