Hey, check this out
A Real Live Woodworking Class

My friend just two doors down from EiE is a cabinet maker and would love to teach your child the
basics of wood working.   Wow, talk about a great opportunity, this is it!  This is designed to be
appropriate for all children (yes, girls are welcomed and encouraged to attend) ages 12 - 18!

He even will allow mommy and me enrollment,  just think ladies, you can impress your
husband with your new skills.

This is not going to be your typical child class where the most they might do is sand a piece of
wood and paint it.  Your child will get experience with various power tools as well as the basic
foundations of hand tools.  Jeff has several projects including wooden Christmas presents that
you can give to family and friends.

Check out the class description in the
classes section.

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

Taught by
LILLI WITCZAK

Oh my, Miss Lilli is going off the beaten path and making up her own course. Using the Institute for Excellence in
Writing’s (IEW) units as a guideline, this course is definitely IEW lite. Huh? Some people are crazy about IEW and other
people, not so much. That’s why this writing course is IEW lite. As for books, we will be using Miss Lilli’s favorites to
learn about positive character traits such as obedience, bravery, honesty, truth, diligence....

Required Books: So far, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s Magic, and Mrs. Piggle-
Wiggle’s Farm - all four were written by Betty MacDonald.

Fees
: $170 for the first semester, $200 for the second semester ($225 if a charter student) plus books.

Course duration
: 1 year.
