THE N.E.W. SCOOP


GREEN BAY HOMESCHOOLING FAMILIES (GBHSF)

Northeast Wisconsin is blessed to have quite a few local homeschool support groups, all listed on The N.E.W. Scoop. Our personal recommendation is Green Bay Homeschooling Families (GBHSF), led by our friend, Carrie. Connect with GBHSF on Facebook OR via its website. GBHSF offers field trips, park dates, movie and game nights, a co-op, lively discussion, and deep camaraderie.  


ALT: WI - EMBRACING HOMESCHOOL FREEDOM IN WISCONSIN

Alt: WI is an online meeting place for private, independent home educators (i.e., those who file an annual PI-1206) throughout Wisconsin. Moderated by Tina, the group launched as a positive alternative for Wisconsin home-educating families, with the goal of promoting a fact-based, freedom-enhancing vision of private homeschooling in the state. Wisconsin was one of the first states to legalize homeschooling in the modern era and – properly interpreted (i.e., with an originalist view as intended by its authors) – the law under which we operate is one of the best (i.e., least regulated) in the nation. We seek to encourage parents to embrace that freedom and to, thus, thrive as home educators. Alt: WI also hosts a website which - among other things - lists and links to activity and field trip venues throughout the state.
 

LEARN MORE BOOKSTORE

The Loft has partnered witLearn More Bookstore, an Algoma-based consignment-style used book store just for homeschoolers. If you see something you like in the Loft Library and would like to purchase it, Learn More may have it! You can take a field trip up to Algoma to browse the store's shelves, or order online and arrange for delivery of your books to The Loft.


SECOND HAND SCHOOL

The Loft has also partnered with Second Hand School, a Facebook group through which a veteran Green Bay area homeschooling mom sells "gently used or nearly new" educational resources. You can join Second Hand School to search for items you see in the Loft Library. 



SPEECH THERAPY CONSULTATIONS

A local friend and veteran homeschooling mother with a master's degree in Speech Pathology and 22 years experience has offered to provide speech and language consultations for a very reasonable fee. She will meet you at The Loft or at your home, according to your preference - or could even provide some feedback from a video or audio recording of your child speaking. For more information, EMAIL Christy.


THE CHRISTIAN HOMESCHOOL OASIS (CHO)

CHO is an online support group for private, independent home educators across the U.S. and Canada. Also moderated by Tina, it is meant to be an oasis for its members - a place for Christian and other socially conservative home-educating parents to refresh and refuel.
