We grow kids from the inside out!
Started by Leslie in General Homeschooling Questions/Information Feb 10.
All members must attend an orientation session. Two have been planned. The first will be Friday, August 23 at 7pm and is Adult Only. The second will be Wednesday, August 28 at 11am and all are welcome. Event pages will be added with locations and other pertinent information. We are holding the first meeting on the East side of the city and the second on the West side to accommodate as many of you as possible.
Kid Cultivators Home School Group is an inclusive support group for those new to homeschooling and/or experienced in homeschooling living in the Atlanta-metro area. Discussion topics focus on homeschooling, general learning, educational methods, and curricula to name a few. We share information on resources, field trips, activities and other information pertinent to our needs. Our group is interfaith and not affiliated with any one religion, denomination or spiritual path--we welcome everyone! We do not tolerate discrimination against people based on ethnicity, race, gender, sexual identity, faith, family size or type.
Kid Cultivators Home School Group is seeking to build a strong community in the form of a very active home school support group. As a group we are here for each other, for support, exchange of ideas, information and to share our passion for teaching and learning with our children. We meet in person, and often, some of us open our homes to others for activities, etc. Because of this, we may seem a little more cautious about who joins our group. If you are interested in joining the group, please fully complete the survey, upload a clear photo of yourself and remember that the caution we use will protect you and your family as it does us and ours!
Upon joining our home school group, we ask that you become an ACTIVE PARTICIPANT*. Your comments, suggestions and ideas are not only welcomed but encouraged! We need you to participate online (in groups & discussions) and in person. YOU are important to the success of our group! For the 2013-2014 School Year we are offering two options to better accommodate family's needs and commitment levels. Tier 1: Basic Membership $25 per family for the school year (includes online access to both the website & Facebook; access to the calendar, park days, field trips). Tier 2: Full Membership $125 (includes everything in basic membership plus weekly classes for your children, access to group memberships, workshops and guest speakers. For the 2013-2014 school year the due date for these fees is September 1, 2013. If you opt for the Tier 2 membership, $25 of your total is required by September 1st and you can choose a payment plan to submit the rest. Basic Membership fees are expected upon joining. We will close our open enrollment on Monday, September 16, 20013

*In joining our group you agree to being an active participant online and in person. An active participant will:
1. Change the generic photo issued upon joining to a photo of themselves.
2. Personalize their page so others in the community can 'get to know' them.
3. Make a post on your 'blog' to introduce your self and family.
4. Share with others in the community from their experiences by adding to or starting discussions in the 'forum' section of the board.
5. Check site often so that you can participate in planned events (Park Days/Games Days, SisterCircle/Support Meetings., Monthly Field Trips, classes, etc.).
We are striving to minimize if not totally eliminate "lurkers" on this board as it defeats the purpose of the sustainable, active community we are committed to maintaining. With your help we can achieve this! Thank you!!
Also, keep in mind that we are a HOME SCHOOL SUPPORT GROUP. If your intentions are to sell us something, recruit members for some other group, or otherwise market or promote anything please reconsider before applying to join, as we value our families more than just consumers. Thank you!
