We're very excited to share with you that our upcoming Homeschool Used Curriculum Sale will take place on Friday, June 13th, 2014!
Our thanks goes to Wellspring Bible Fellowship for allowing us to use their gymnasium for this sale.
So if you've never been to a homeschool curriculum sale, here's how they work:
For those planning to sell homeschool curriculum and educational books/games/items, please call or email me to register. There's no fee to sell materials, but we need to have the right amount of tables set up ahead of time. I'll need to know how many tables you would like me to set up. These will either be 8- or 12-foot banquet tables or 8-person round tables. . . or a combination of both. Label your books and materials with a price tag and your initials (in case a book wanders off your table and we need to locate the owner. The "removable" labels work well for this.) Arrive at Wellspring Bible Fellowship at 8 a.m. (not before), and begin setting up your books and materials. You will need to have a family member or friend stay at your table throughout the morning to take money for items. I would recommend only taking cash unless you know the person well and as a seller are comfortable accepting a check.
Each seller is asked to bring at least 1 or a few items (or more) that will be available for free/donation to families.
Annual Homeschool Testing (provided by Diane Dunas - 459-9311 - testing slots are still available) will be taking place that morning at Wellspring. Families will be coming in to register for testing in the gymnasium - and they will hopefully see all of your books and materials for sale and linger and purchase! ☺
For those who are interested in buying curriculum and educational games and supplies, the sale will take place from 8:30 a.m. until around noon. There are no fees to be a part of the curriculum sale, so invite your friends to join us!
Here are some postcards you can print off and use to invite your friends to the curriculum sale. Just click on the graphic, below, and they will be available to download and print:
If you have any questions about the sale, please contact Julieanne (440-2122; or email). Thanks!
During the past six years, Landry Academy has held Homeschool Mom Science Retreats that were a wonderful time of relaxation, fellowship, and learning! They are offering them again in several locations throughout the country, including Portland, Oregon on September 3-5, 2014.
Yes, this is one year from now...but we thought we would let you know about the event so you can pencil it in on your calendar. :)
Homeschool moms from around the country spend time together, sharing ideas, and learning from our science teachers and each other about teaching Christ-centered science to their children and homeschool co-op groups.
The cost is only $25 and includes two nights' accommodations, six meals, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate 24/7, all the hands-on science you can handle, lab supplies, lots of stories, lots of chocolate, door prizes, lab manual, access to experienced science teachers, freebies to take home, t-shirt, great fellowship with other homeschooling moms.. and relaxation. :)
It would be wonderful to have a group of moms from Douglas County carpooling up to the Portland area to enjoy the fun, educational weekend! Let's keep it in mind, homeschool moms! Learn more HERE.
The Douglas County Homeschool Co-op has some openings! The fall term for 2013-2014 begins on Sept. 5th, 2013, and the subject is "All About Oregon": discussing geography, history, agriculture, Industries, native species and the future of Oregon. All the topics will be made age-appropriate for each class.
We are also planning a few field trips into the community this term. We are planning on doing the field trips on the second week of the month. In prior co op’s, we have taken this week off to go skating. The
field trips will be optional but encouraged, since they will fit in with what we are teaching.
We are excited about this term! We currently have four classes:
Classes are separated by reading and writing skill levels, not by ages.
The co-op begins at 12:45 p.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. on Thursdays at Hucrest Community Church of
God on Witherspoon Avenue in Roseburg.
ALL PARENTS MUST TAKE TURNS TEACHING. The planning for classes will take place in the next few weeks by each team of teachers. On the first week of class, we will have an informational meeting before we begin classes.
The cost is $15.00 for one child, $25.00 for two children, and $35.00 for three or more children in the same family.
If you are interested in becoming involved in the co-op this term, or would like more information, please contact Jodi Smith by Friday Aug. 16th. We have limited spots available, and families will be accepted until full.

Advice for Successful Selling
There are two main areas that will determine whether you items will sell:
*how you price your books and materials
*the type of materials you are trying to sell
If your items are priced too high, you have a greater chance of not selling your item.
The following items have VERY LITTLE chance of selling:
The following items have a better chance of selling if they are EDUCATIONAL and NO MORE THAN THREE YEARS OLD:
