EiE Seminars 2014-15

Marty and Carolyn provide the entire homeschool community the opportunity to attend monthly evening seminars
designed to enhance the positive homeschool experience for your family.  Each year we try to weave a theme
and this year it is to encourage our attendees to better understand the philosophy of Dr. Raymond Moore, the
Jefferson Education Model, the teachings John Gatto and John Holt as well as the importance of Learning Styles.

For the 2014-15 school year we will be presenting our seminars on Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  
Our fee to attend is a free will donation with a suggested amount of $10.00 per person or $15.00 per family.  
There will be a container for the donations to be deposited.  We do not track who donates since we would rather
you attend the seminar than forgo it for financial considerations.

Our Seminar Schedule for 2014-15 is:

Thursday September 11, 2014                Overview of Curriculum Styles
Thursday October 16, 2014                      Annual High School Seminar
Thursday November 13, 2014                 Game Curriculum

GRANITE CREEK COMMUNITY CHURCH PRESENTS
THE 14TH ANNUAL LIVING NATIVITY

DECEMBER 12-14 AND DECEMBER 19-21, 2014

THE LIVING NATIVITY DRAMA - The 10-scene drama recreates pivotal moments surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ,
from the Angel Gabriel’s pronouncement to Mary of Jesus’ birth, to Caesar Augustus’ devious census declaration, to
the ecstatic singing of the heavenly hosts at Jesus’ birth. Elaborate set decorations, a life-sized manger, live animals,
Roman soldiers patrolling on horseback and a Persian Princess promise to transport you back to first century.
Event admission is free and complimentary guest parking is located across the street.

BOLDLY DECLARING THE VIRGIN BIRTH AND DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST.

SPECIAL NEEDS SUPPORT GROUP MEETING

Tuesday November 18
7:00 PM
EiE Resource Center

Join us for our first meeting of our Special Needs Support Group for this year.  Our objective for this meeting is to meet
the members, both old and new, and formulate the platform for the rest of the year.  Carolyn and I have had the
pleasure of attending two special needs conferences in the last two weeks.  We will be able to review those
conferences at this meeting.  On the agenda will also be the viewing of a video published by the Texas Christian
University Child Development Center.  We have been very impressed with the research and techniques they have
developed in successfully working with special needs children, especially in the areas of attachment and sensory
integration.  We guarantee you will find some very interesting information and applications in working with your children.

Remember, you do not have to be a member of EiE to attend these support group meetings.  In fact, invite
your friends with special needs children to attend with you.
 

If you can, please email us at eiefieldtrips@gmail.com if you are planning to attend.  A reservation is not
neccessary, but it would be helpful.
