  2. What constitutes a school year?

    Thank you very much!
  3. What constitutes a school year?

    South Carolina law requires that students be registered somewhere (public, private, or homeschool) until age 17, so you'd run into problems if you graduate them too early. That said, I believe learning is a journey, not a race. A lifelong journey, actually. So instead of going faster, I recommend that parents encourage their children to go deeper. There's so much to learn, we'll never learn it all in one lifetime, so take advantage of the first 18 years of our lives to learn as much as we can, before adult responsibilities compete for our attention.

  4. Hello, New soon to be homeschooler here. We will be pulling my 2nd grade daughter out of the school system in the next few months. My understanding is that 180 days equals a school year. If that's the case then, could you technically push your child to complete two school years every calendar year? Again if that is the case my daughter could technically graduate when she is 13? To put everyone at ease the DNA that I have passed to my child will not allow this to happen, nor would I want this. Simply put, my brain requires I have all of the answers. Thank you

  11. Homeschool Friday: Columbia Music History

    While Hootie and the Blowfish may be one of the best-known bands to come out of Columbia, what other musicians can you name that call it home? Together we will learn about the various kinds of music performed by Columbians, including gospel, jazz, country, soul, and rock and roll. Students will explore these genres and create their own instruments. We’ll also learn about famous dances and dance clubs from our very own hometown. All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted. The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door. If you have questions, would like to be on our mailing list, or if you would like to register for the entire year of Homeschool Friday programs, please email education@historiccolumbia.org or call 803.252.1770 x 26.
  12. Tales of Union County

    Do you get scared easily? At night? In the dark? Surrounded by the forest? Want to find out? Join us at Rose Hill Plantation on Saturday, October 28th, for an evening of ghostly legends with our annual Tales of Union County & Beyond. Feel your spine tingle as you listen to spooky tales by the light of the fire. What was that noise? Maybe it was an owl or a squirrel or a coyote calling. Or maybe it was something else. Let your imagination run wild. Our cast of professional storytellers will keep you hanging on every word. The eeriness begins at 6:30 p.m. behind the kitchen at the rear of the Gist Mansion. Relax around the campfire and enjoy s’mores, hot drinks and other goodies while our storytellers enthrall you. Prepare to be scared! Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair, a blanket or some other form of portable seating, and to dress for the weather to ensure their comfort. Lighting will be limited and the ground is slightly uneven so decent walking shoes are recommended. We ask that you bring your own mug so that we can reduce Styrofoam waste. We will fill it with a hot drink for you! In the event of inclement weather, the program will not be held. Reservations are required by October 23rd. E-mail or call us so we can take your reservation. Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site, 2677 Sardis Road, Union, SC, 29379 Ph.: 864-427-5966. E-mail: rosehill@scprt.com Web: www.southcarolinaparks.com/rosehill Cost is $10.00 per person (age 6 and older). Age 5 and under are free. This is a S.C. Park Passport Plus program.

    I am going to post a poem that I wrote that was chosen to be published in a little while on here. I don't want them to think I plagiarized a poem if they find it on here.
  19. Phrase of the Day

    History has shown time and time again how important it is to continuously reflect your own actions. Evil empires rose and committed their horrendous crimes because thousands or millions of individuals did not question their behaviors. One might participate in these actions without feeling responsible for the overall result. However, most of these crimes can only be committed when many individuals unquestioningly participate in the activities of the collective. Copied from http://www.planetofsuccess.com
