    Saturday Stroll | Heathwood

    Join Historic Columbia for a stroll through Heathwood! Columbia’s Heathwood neighborhood derives its name from Moses Chappell Heath, who established this community east of the city in the early 20th century. Today, Heathwood is a name associated with land developed by both Heath, beginning in 1914, and his son-in-law Burwell Deas Manning, Sr., starting about 1940. Successive generations of original families remain in this tight-knit community of architecturally distinct residences with mature landscapes. Tickets are free for members and children 5 & under, and $8/adult and $5/youth for non-members. For more information or to purchase, visit HistoricColumbia.org, call 803-252-1770 x 23 or email reservations@historiccolumbia.org.

  15. I think my last member newsletter was confusing, and I apologize! There are forms and samples for biannual reports and daily/weekly journals in the members area, but these aren't required. If you've already documented your own way, that's fine. These forms/samples are optional, and just give new homeschoolers an idea of one way to do it. If you want to access these forms/samples, I can give you access to the members area (instructions for accessing it was provided at the beginning of the school year). What's required is the end-of-year compliance certification. That link is in the email, too, and will take you right to the form. If you haven't submitted that, please do it now and you'll be finished with what I require. Let me know if you still want access to the members area so you can see the optional forms/samples. Warmly, Dianna
  16. I cannot find the progress report? The link in the email I received takes me to the forums but from here I don't see any link for the form. When searching for it I found another person asking the same question in the forum. Can someone post a link to the semi-annual progress report please? Thank you
  17. I’m often asked how to do a “trial run” before fully committing to homeschooling, especially during the summer. My advice is not to break out the textbooks and workbooks. Instead, do this: http://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/trial-run/

    Homeschool Friday: The Hampton-Preston Mansion

    With the installation of new exhibits at the Hampton-Preston Mansion, we will learn more about the previous residents of the property. Wade Hampton I became one of the wealthiest planters in the country by the time of his death in 1835, owning more than 3,000 enslaved individuals. Wade II and Wade III, with the help of their extended families, continued this legacy. Documents show that the Hampton-Preston family enslaved more than 60 men, women and children at this site. Through artifacts, hands-on activities, and documents, students will encounter aspects of our troubled past as a slave-holding society. 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. For more information, call 803-252-1770 x 36 or email jquint@historiccolumbia.org.

    Partial Homeschool

    Hi Stacey, I don't personally know of any, but hopefully someone else here will be able to help. Warmly, Dianna
  26. Can anyone make suggestions or steer me in the right direction of a learning institution in the Charleston area (Mount Pleasant preferred) that has a partial homeschool program? Go to school 2-3 days per week and the other days I homeschool? My seven year old is enrolled in the Charleston County school district while also a competitive gymnast. This requires having to be at school by 7:15 each morning while practicing four days a week after school for 3-4 hours at a time. She goes straight from school to practice and makes it home just before 8:00 p.m. to go to bed and do it again the next day. Something has to give. She doesn't want to be pulled out of school all together but I'm trying to find some kind of compromise.
