Our 2016 In-Store Events schedule is listed below.
Some of our In-Store Events are free of charge. However, most (e.g. our Workshops) take place in our basement classroom where seating is limited. For these, pre-registration with a non-refundable reservation fee is required (good for up to two immediate family members) on a first-come, first-served basis. Except where noted below, Workshop attendees will be given a $5 credit toward any purchase made the evening of the Workshop.
All Workshops begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. and last 1 - 2 hours, although we're happy to stay until all questions have been addressed. We ask Workshop attendees to arrive 15 minutes early so we can get everyone checked-in and start each Workshop on time. CEU documentation is available on request. Call today to register! 763-241-HOME (4663)
Please carefully note below which of these listed events require pre-registration. Please DO NOT just show up for events which require pre-registration as it is likely there will not be room for you to attend.
Sorry - child care is not provided at any of our In-Store Events, although nursing infants are fine.
Tuesday, February 16th - The Logic of English Mini-Training Workshop
Denise Eide (Logic of English)
Non-refundable registration fee: $15 (includes same-night $5 store credit)
Learn the tools needed to teach reading and spelling effectively. In this two-hour workshop, your understanding of English will be transformed! Award-winning author Denise Eide will reveal tools that explain 98% of English words. No longer will you need to tell your children “that is an exception” when they misread or misspell a word. You will learn:
- The rule that explains the two sounds for C in “accent”
- Three of the nine reasons for a Silent Final E.
- Why we drop the Silent Final E in “servicing” but not in “serviceable”
- Why many math- and science-minded kids struggle with reading and spelling - and why this reflects their gifts, not their shortcomings.
Current Logic of English users will also benefit from this presentation and have an opportunity to perfect their teaching of Spelling Analysis.
Tuesday, March 8th - Moms' Night Out, 7:00-10:00 p.m.
Non-refundable registration fee: FREE! (no in-store credit)
Spring is just around the corner. Perhaps this would be a good time to get out, get connected, and get refreshed. Heppner's Legacy will be open from 7:00-10:00 p.m. for Moms' Night Out. Come spend time with other homeschooling moms, have a cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate and some treats. This evening is just for YOU! Bring a friend and show up whenever you like; no cost or pre-registration required.
Tuesday, March 22nd - Homeschooling Your Highschooler Workshop
Nancy Bjorkman (Heppner's Legacy Homeschool Resources)
Non-refundable registration fee: $10.00 (includes same-night $5 store credit)
This interactive workshop will help to answer frequently asked questions about homeschooling through the high school years. We will consider course requirements, transcripts, record keeping, curriculum choices, post-secondary opportunities, co-ops, CLEP and other testing options, resumes, scholarship opportunities, and more. This is our most popular workshop, so we suggest you register early.
More In-Store Events are planned later this year. Please subscribe to our e-newsletter to be notified about our future In-Store Events.
