Filing End of Year Assessment & Letter of Intent

Hello Everyone,

Another reminder about filing your year-end assessments before June 30th. It is imperative that we obey the law and get our assessments in on time, whether you chose standardized testing, or portfolio evaluations done by a certified teacher.

Here's a link to the CHEWV website, where you can find a sample letter (my preference) and a sample form, whichever you choose to use for sending in your letter of intent:


When you send in your year-end results, it is good to include your letter of intent with them. That way, there is no question about whether you got it in "on time."

Also, it is highly recommended that you send your paperwork via certified mail with return receipt requested, so you have some proof that the BOE received your paperwork. When you get it back signed from the BOE, staple that receipt to a copy of your letter of intent and year-end assessment, and store it all safely.

If you have any questions about this process, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Christmas in July Used Curriculum Sale

Hello Everyone,

Are you enjoying the up and down temps of our summer so far? You never know whether to bring a jacket or sun screen with you. Fun times.

We are planning a used curriculum sale, along with two other Marion county homeschool co-ops, to be held on Tuesday, July 24th, from 9:00 - noon, in the fellowship hall at Trinity. (There may also be some locals vendors on site to offer their educational wares.)

Here are some guidelines:

1.  Be there 10-15 minutes early to set up.

2. Clearly mark the price on an envelope, along with your "payable to" name, if accepting checks, or CASH ONLY, and put it with the curriculum item(s) for sale.

3. Only educational items should be brought to this sale--no garage sale items (such as used clothing).

4.  You are responsible for your own set-up, take-down, and supervision of materials. Please do not leave things for us to clean up, even if you don't care that they are thrown away. If you want to give away things to keep from taking them back home, please announce that 30 minutes or more before the sale is over.

If you are planning to sell anything during this event, or if you have any questions, please leave me a comment, so we will be sure to have enough tables available.

Thank you!

Selena Campbell
