The North Country Homeschooling group seeks to provide homeschooling support and activities to those living in the Northern NY counties of Clinton, Essex, and Franklin. Activity information is available via email, blog, and Facebook. Homeschooling support is provided though Facebook and a variety of monthly support groups. The North Country Homeschooling Group is open to anyone who homeschools or who is thinking of homeschooling. There are no membership fees.
Please come join us at the Wesleyan Church on Rt 3 in the village of Cadyville.
Set-up for those teaching will begin at 10:15am. Also, teachers, please remember to bring an envelope marked with your class name, fee, and some change to place on the sign-in table!
Classes start promptly at 11:00am, and conclude around 2:00p or 2:30p when the 1:00pm afternoon classes finish. Feel free to come for the whole time or just for the portion your family wants to participate in. Bring a lunch to enjoy upstairs in the Fellowship Hall or next door at the playground!

Come join in a circle time hearing a story about the first Thanksgiving, make a Thankful Turkey craft, and play with fall sensory bins.
Each student will get a small wooden treasure chest to decorate, then we will fill them with things we treasure in our lives. These can be pictures or written words on slips of paper. Anyone wishing to donate old magazines or catalogs for cutting out pictures is welcome to do so. Students may bring small photos of loved ones to place in their treasure boxes. Art supplies (paper, markers will be out for drawing) I will try to play "my favorite things" song as sung in the sound of music, at the beginning to help get the ideas flowing. These filled treasure boxes that go home with each student may be helpful in reminding us what we all are thankful for at thanksgiving time.
***Please remember that co-op has a nut free policy! This includes not only items brought for bag lunches but also for holiday treats, snacks, etc. If you are looking for a nut butter alternative, sun butter is OK to use! ***
We will meet upstairs in the fellowship hall and/or next door at the playground for lunch break.
