NEW MONTHLY HOMESCHOOL PROGRAM OFFERED AT MONTICELLO LIBRARY
This month, our homeschool program will be doing an international potluck. Participating homeschool families will be celebrating the Thanksgiving season by researching a country of interest or a country from their own heritage.
This program will take place on Thursday, Nov. 30, at 11:30 a.m. Each student will cook/bake something from their chosen country to share with the group. They will also present facts about the country and/or its history. This program gives homeschool students a chance to share their work with their peers and community. All ages are invited to attend and participate at their own level.
