    Junior Science Humanities Symposium

    Submit Research Papers for the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (see guidelines to submit written work due Dec 1) One or more of your students can submit a written paper describing his or her original research in an area of science or humanities. These presentations are often based on work students have done in school research projects, for science fairs, or for other research presentations. A panel of USC faculty members, Industry Scientists, and Government Scientists will consider these written papers and the top five will be selected for presentation in competition at the full symposium. The symposium presentations will be judged by another committee of scientists and by everyone who attends the symposium. We will pick the top five papers and of these five the top three presenters will win scholarships. All five will have their expenses paid to attend the National JSHS Meeting in Norfolk Virginia, April 15 - 18, 2020. All others who submit a paper will have the opportunity to present that paper in a series of concurrent small symposia. Prizes and/or Honors Certificates will be given for the best presentations in each concurrent symposium.

This is a group of parents and kids of all ages and abilities, looking just to make relationships and have some play time. If you can make it, it would be great to meet you! If not, then perhaps we could meet up closer to your area, Paris Mountain? I am not from here so don’t really know a lot of places

    Hi I have an 11yr old daughter in 6th grade looking for some kids her age in the area
  13. Hi Caroline, Every homeschooled child basically has an "IEP." However, different schools handle special services to children differently. I would recommend calling the special services office at your school district and asking them what services they would provide for your child if you homeschool. Warmly, Dianna
  14. We have a child who is four years old and currently has an IEP through Child Find. He is homeschooled but we agreed in his IEP that he would receive some special education services for one hour twice per week with his local public school. Long story short, we were told by our contact through Child Find that if we did decide NOT to put him into full-time public school in kindergarten that we would have to drop his IEP all together and discontinue services. Homeschooling was not an option if we want any state support for him. Does anyone have experience with this or know it to be true/not true? Thank you for any advice!

    Hi Christy, I hope others will jump in here to reply - it's a little slow now because we're still in summer mode. But I also wanted to add that I'll do Outsider events where you can hopefully connect with local families, too. Warmly, Dianna

    Blacksburg Families?

    We moved to Blacksburg in May and would like to connect with local families. We moved from a suburb South of Charlotte because we want to raise our children (3 boys - ages 10y, 6y & 5y) on a farm/homestead. We value clean living and healthy food so we decided to get some land and raise animals for meat and milk. We've been growing many of our own veggies for years in our tiny city backyard with raised beds. My homeschool philosophy is ironic...I have one foot in the unschool (every opportunity is a chance to learn) camp and and the other in the Charlotte Mason/Classical camp. We love nature and computers and everything in between. It's a fine line to balance keeping life simple and 'old school's while teaching about and with technology so our youth can be prepared, confident and competitive. If you'd like to get together with a non-judgemental, drama-free, naturally minded, goofy, hot mess, blunt, honest, mama, I'm your chick. My boys love the outdoors, science, Legos (any building toys), cooking, playing in dirt/mud, PlayStation (Minecraft, Cars racing, overcooked and the older one plays fortnight) and wrestling.... LOL They are typical kids...they play, eat, fight, eat, poop, play, fight, eat, repeat....

    new to SC

    We are considering a move to South Carolina. I am looking for core class options for grades 5, 7, and 9. My preference is 2-3 days a week of instruction and the remainder at home. I have seen info about Arrows Academy. What other options are there? Has anyone used Arrows and can tell me what the home day work is like? Thanks for any insight!
  22. Hi! First year homeschooler with a 5 yo and 1 yo. We are in the Greenville area, too. We would love to meet some fellow locals!
