    Hi! I’m in Greer! My son is 7 and my daughter is 4. Would love to chat. anicole.benson@gmail.com I completely forgot about this forum until this evening when I was double checking documentation requirements. LOL!
  3. Hi! I’m in Greenville, so not SUPER close, but I’d love to help you out. My son is in 2nd grade and my daughter is PreK (she’s 4). You can reach out to me through here, although I don’t check it often or email me: anicole.benson@gmail.com
  4. Hey! We are new to Oconee county, near Clemson, and we would love to meet other homeschooled kids. My girls are 8 and 10 years old and we haven't found groups/meetups for their age yet. It's mostly younger kids that I have found so far. I would love to have a group meet regularly for slightly older kids, maybe 7-12? Let me know if their is a group already in existence that you know of or if you are interested in starting one with me. I don't mind including younger siblings but the focus would be on the older kids. Thanks!

    Holiday House Tours - Begins Today

    Guests are invited to see a variety of holiday decorations and experience past traditions at the Robert Mills House and the Hampton-Preston Mansion between Friday, Nov. 22 and Tuesday, Dec. 31. Tour guides will provide stories of holidays past in Columbia and discuss how families decorated and entertained during the 19th and early 20th centuries. At the Robert Mills House, guests will see how a home of its size might have been decorated in the 1820s during the time before Christmas trees were popular. Across the street at the Hampton-Preston Mansion, Christmas of the 1860s was very different from today in many ways but some of the traditions we carry on today have their roots from this time. Eggnog, poinsettias and Christmas trees were all part of the Victorian era holidays. Admission includes a guided tour of both the Robert Mills House and the Hampton-Preston Mansion. Tours will be offered Tuesday – Saturday at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m.,1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Visit The Gift Shop at Robert Mills, located at 1616 Blanding Street, to purchase admission and begin your tour.

    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.
