PostHeaderIcon Chairman’s Corner September/October 2016

What a great kick-off meeting! I was so inspired by our speakers and their presentations that I’m very excited to start this homeschooling year. I want everyone to remember the great advice from Alton Carson and Jeff and Lisa Barber: Use every opportunity we can in our day-to-day lives to teach our children. Also, don’t sweat it and have fun educating your children. Most importantly teach them The Way of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Make sure to check your emails, read your newsletter, and print it out so everyone is informed. We will be sending requests for your RSVP to some events this year so please respond promptly. We try not to overload you with emails, however this is the way we communicate with our members. Texting is not an option, so please check your emails daily. To advertise a homeschool item on our Community Bulletin Board page, please email it to


We also want to encourage all mothers to save the date for the Mom’s Workshop on October 1st. It’s a wonderful time of fellowship, encouragement, information, and of course good food. You don’t want to miss!

Our ministry team wants CHEH members to let us know when there is a new baby, hospitalization of an immediate family member, or the death of a member or a grandparent so they can share your prayer requests and prepare a meal for your immediate family.


Let us never forget to count our blessings and thank the good Lord up above for what he has provided for us and let us raise up in our prayers those who are less fortunate and those who are being subject to natural disasters.

Graduating Seniors, please read Guidelines Section 9-G:

Prospective graduates and their parents are required to have been active CHEH members for at least the three years leading up to and including the prospective graduate’s senior year.  (Active means participating in CHEH functions such as family/parent events, field trips, and youth loop events. Whether a family and prospective graduate is active or not is determined solely by the application/graduation committee.  Participation in approximately one half of CHEH family/parent events and one half of the CHEH Youth Loop events will be used by the application/graduation committee as a ‘rule of thumb’ to make this determination.)

Any family that was not home schooling for those three years mentioned, but begins home schooling during the student’s junior year, may petition the application/graduation committee for membership and graduation participation no later than September 1 of the student’s junior year.  That family will need letters of recommendation from two current active CHEH member families before the committee will consider the application and consider participation in graduation.  If approved for membership and graduation, that family would be required to pay upfront by September 1 of the senior year, a $100 nonrefundable fee.  This new prospective graduate will need to adhere to the same “active” status requirement as mentioned above.

Any family moving into the Hattiesburg area during the student’s junior or senior year will need to provide two letters of recommendation from their previous homeschool support group – one letter being from the chairman of that group and the other letter being from another member of that homeschool support group or their pastor.  After the recommendation letters have been received, the application will be considered.  If approved, this new prospective graduate will need to adhere to the same “active” status requirement as mention above.  The graduate and at least one parent are expected to attend all graduation planning meetings to the fullest extent possible.
