Friday Flame for November 8, 2019

Six Months To Go!

The countdown is on to the Wisconsin Parents Association 37th Annual Homeschooling Conference, “Kindling the Flame,” May 8-9, 2020 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

We’ve been getting questions and we’re thrilled to hear how excited you are!

Q: What is the goal of the Conference?
A: The goal is to strengthen the WPA community for all Wisconsin homeschoolers — prospective through seasoned — and their families, by providing accurate information, offering enrichment opportunities, and fostering positive connections.

Q: Who is the Conference for?
A: There will be something for all Wisconsin homeschoolers; parents, children, grandparents, and supporters; religious and non-religious; prospective, new and long-time homeschoolers. We come together around our shared passion for homeschooling.

Q: Do we need to register for the Conference?
A: Yes! Registration packets will be mailed to Members in February. Online registration for all will open soon after. (Join or renew your membership here.)

Q: How much will the Conference cost?
A: Early Bird Registration for WPA Members will be $100/family. Early Bird Non-Member Registration will be $175/family. Prices will go up to $140 and $215 respectively after the Early Bird Deadline. A $20 per-person Friday-Only option will be available. A limited number of hardship scholarships will be available for WPA Member families attending the full Conference. More details, including deadlines and daily schedules, are on their way in the coming weeks and months.

Q: What time does Conference start and end?
A: Conference check-in will open Friday afternoon, and we will wrap things up around dinnertime on Saturday.

Q: Will there be Vendors and Exhibitors? What about a Used Book Sale, “Please Touch” Curriculum, or Welcome Bag Literature as in years past?
A: Yes. Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, if you or a business or resource you know would make a great vendor or exhibitor at the Conference, please email

Please share this info with your fellow homeschoolers and homeschool supporters! We look forward to seeing you in 6 months!
