Congratulations on your decision to home-school!!!!
Creative Homeschoolers is a homeschooling family support group that does not discriminate on the basis of race, faith, gender, lifestyle, or educational philosophy.
Because we believe that we all learn and benefit from a sharing of diverse backgrounds and belief systems.  We encourage families to share their own personal, cultural, and spiritual histories in an atmosphere of mutual toleration. We invite you to join in our open door policy of acceptance and support.
Currently we have a weekly play day at Turner Lake Park in Covington during the warm months, and at one of our members church during the cold months. We also have monthly parents night out meetings that meet at IHOP restaurant in Conyers.  Monthly field trips are being planned for the 2003-2004 school year.  This is how we support one another and get our children together.  As of now we do not have a newsletter. We have an e-mail list through Topica that we communicate through.  It works great as long as you remember to check your e-mail.  It really is the backbone of our groups communication.  Please let me know if you would like me to subscribe you to the list.
As we are a growing group we are constantly changing to meet the needs of our group. We do not have a membership application, but we do ask that you fill out the attached information sheet if you would like to join our group.  I keep it in my file on the computer and a hard copy of it in my Creative file.  It is used only for group functions and is not given to any outside source.  I hope this answers any questions you may have.  If not you may reach me at
vwaters9@bellsouth.net.

Valerie Waters
