Big Announcement for RRHE

As many local support groups and co-ops continue to thrive, serving the community well, the RRHE board recognized that one particular support group, Home School Family Connection, is growing stronger, serving the larger homeschool community with much the same vision and purpose that RRHE did in its heyday. As we’ve prayed and met with the group’s leaders, it has become clear that there is no need for duplicate efforts when HSFC is doing such an outstanding job.

With joy, we’re announcing that it’s time for Richmond Regional Home Educators to fold our services into Home School Family Connection. As one branch of HSFC, we will continue to focus our energies on providing a beautiful graduation ceremony, and continuing to provide leadership for such activities as the annual spelling bee, the local homeschool Beta Club, and to serve families of high school students in new, practical ways. Some things we may offer are a Mentoring for Moms service, a career fair for teens, a day of Teacher Training Workshops, and a Homeschool Family Fair in the summer.

It’s a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for all members of Richmond Regional Home Educators!

First, a bit of history...

About 30 years ago, in Richmond a new home educating community was growing and flourishing. Book fairs, field trips, arts events, sports clubs, park days, spelling and geography bees, parent workshops, support groups, and academic co-ops were popping up all over the metro area. There was even a group of parents who organized a lovely homeschool graduation ceremony every spring.

Someone needed to collect all that information and make it available to support group leaders and individual families. So that’s exactly what the early mission of RRHE was. In those days before the Internet, support groups relied on paper newsletters, typed on a home PC, copied at an office supply store, and then snail-mailed to members’ homes.

For years that system worked well. Then the Internet came along, and RRHE’s newsletter morphed into an online discussion forum, providing a place for groups and individuals to connect and communicate. Many local support groups were starting their own forums, email loops, Yahoo! Groups, and websites. RRHE continued to provide those discussion forums, the high school graduation ceremonies, and an annual book fair for homeschoolers to find the information, activities, and used curriculum they needed.

That brings us to today.
