Bit from the Board – October 2020

Happy Fall PEACH families,

Fall is definitely in the air this year. Most years it seems we jump from summer to winter, with little fall weather. As much as I love summer, I love the many activities that fall has to offer.

There are many local pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and orchards to visit. Once the leaves start to change, a picnic lunch on the parkway will not disappoint. PEACH will also being hosting some field trips. I encourage you to participate, meet some new families, catch up with some familiar families, and enjoy some of our local educational spots.

PEACH will also begin hosting our monthly support group meetings again in October. Our
support group meetings are somewhat of an underutilized informational resource. As a well-seasoned homeschooler, I have never left a meeting without a new tidbit of information. I am personally inviting each of you to the upcoming meeting. Feel free to bring a homeschooling friend, PEACH support group meetings are open to all homeschooling families. Please spread the word!

The October meeting will begin with a short business meeting, which has been delayed since spring. This will allow us to vote in a couple of new board members, as well as officially wrap of this past school year. After the business meeting we will proceed with the support group meeting. There will be in informal Q & A session, with some veteran homeschoolers. Feel free to ask about curriculum options, scheduling, homeschooling with little ones, etc. If you don’t have any questions, please come share some of your favorite homeschooling tips. As this year of PEACH gets started, if there is some way that PEACH can better serve you and your family, please feel free to contact me at

The PEACH board welcomes any ideas that will help to serve our membership better.
