2017 Wisconsin Parents Association Member Event

Rediscovering WPA: Rights, Responsibilities, and Community

Saturday, May 13, 2017 at Pfiffner Park, Stevens Point, WI

Join us for a day-long, members-only event that will inspire, inform, and celebrate our lives as homeschoolers.

Schedule for the day

10:30 – 11:00 – Registration, Coffee, and Conversation

11:00 – 12:00 – Welcome: Jen Lynch, WPA Executive Director Speaker: Pamela Roland, WPA Board President and Issues Director, “How We Got Here, Where We’re Going: Modern Homeschooling in Wisconsin”

12:00 – 1:00 – Lunch!  Bring your own or sign up for purchased lunch when you register.

1:00 – 2:00 – Table Talks – Topics will include homeschooling for high school, getting started, record keeping, dealing with challenges, finding and sharing resources, and more.  These will be small-group conversations led by experienced homeschoolers and WPA Regional Contacts.

2:00 – 3:00 – WPA Annual Business meeting – This is where we talk about how and what WPA is doing.  It is also the time for you (the members) to ask questions, raise issues, and make your voices heard.

3:00 – 4:00 – Graduation/Recognition Ceremony – This is always an inspiring and joyful event as we join together with families in our community to celebrate the accomplishments of their children.  Speaker topic: “Homeschooling Responsibilities: Personal Reflections.”

4:00 – 5:00 – Party! Let’s talk, eat, laugh and socialize.  We are so lucky to have such a diverse community of homeschoolers in Wisconsin.

This event is aimed primarily at adults and teens.  Children are very welcome, however there will be no special programming or workshops for children.
