Homeschool Graduations Celebrate Children - The Old Schoolhouse® is helping families dream for the future - May 31, 2019
“Graduation season is a great time for mom and dad to celebrate all their children, and the grades they have completed,” says Gena Suarez, publisher of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. “It is also a perfect time to dream together as a family about the coming year and the new adventures that lie ahead.” While most students are looking ahead to the next grade, many soon-to-be high school graduates are preparing for college and the pursuit of a career. (They can discover ocean careers by reading the upcoming issue!)
Published quarterly, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine helps homeschool families get ready for every new season. A subscription can be purchased for $29 US (one year) or $39 US (two years). Every issue will arrive in the mail, containing 120 glossy pages of help and encouragement for home educators. In the Summer 2019 edition, parents will find excellent teaching tips such as when to start formal math and how to make grammar fun. They will learn strategies for teaching multiple ages and receive advice about social media and about working while homeschooling.
For this graduation season, Paul and Gena Suarez have a special message for homeschooling families: “Congratulations to parents and students on another great year of learning! Thank you for making The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine an important part of your homeschooling journey.”
