It’s time to get a table and sell your stuff at our annual Used Curriculum sale!

TO DONATE YOUR BOOKS TO THE WIDOW’S FUND…
We will also have a Widow’s fund area and Fran Froelich is coordinating that this year.  The widow’s fund books are books that have been donated to be sold at the Widow’s fund part of the used book sale.  So, if you want to get rid of your books, but have no desire to price them and sell them, you can bless our widows by donating them to be sold at the Used Book sale.  However, please do NOT donate old teacher’s guides and stuff that you know won’t sell.
Here is Fran’s note on the Widow’s fund…
Spring cleaning is in the air. It’s that time of year to clear off your book shelves & donate to a worthy cause. I am collecting curriculum, books of all subjects or any school related supplies/items . A drop box is located at the Family Vision Library or you may contact me to make arrangements for pick up.
I will also need help sorting, pricing, setting up for the sale and cleaning up after the sale.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions, books to donate, or would like to help out!

Help PT Students
I hope you have all are having a good Spring.  As we wind down this school year, I am already working on a great opportunity for Home Schooled Students for this fall.  As a former Home Schooling mom and Physical Therapist, I have, for the past 25 years, partnered with the Washington University School of Physical Therapy to bring together our students and the Washington University PT students so the PT students can practice their posture evaluations in the PT lab with their professors.
Briefly, this is a Physical Therapy class in their doctorate program at Washington University who practice their posture evaluation skills on our children in classroom setting.  It takes place in an open lab and moms are welcome to sit in the lab near their child during the eval.  The location is 4444 Forest Park Blvd., just past the old Jewish Hospital building (BJC North).  I will send directions and more details to those attending.  Would your 2nd-6th grade child(ren) like to participate?
This year we will be meeting on 4 Fridays in September. The first session is Friday, September 1st….which is the Friday of Labor Day weekend.  Can you please reply to this email address, bethbachman1999@gmail.com and let me know if you are available for the Posture Evals for this Fall and which date works best for you.
This year we will have 4 different dates with 10 students for each date.  Please hit “REPLY” and let me know if you can make any of the dates below.  You must register with me to be able to attend.
Lab #1:  Friday, Sept 1  from 8-10 am
Lab #2:  Friday, Sept 8 from 8-10 am
Lab #3:  Friday, Sept  22 from 8-10 am
Lab #4:  Friday, Sept 29 from 8-10 am
Payment:  The home school students will be reimbursed $30 for every 2 students in a family.  So if there’s one student in a family participating, they will get a check for $30/class.  If there are 2 students in a family, they will split the $30/class.  If there are 3 students in a family participating, they will receive two $30 checks/session.
Again, if you are able to participate this fall, please check your calendars and reply to this email address now to let me know if you are available for 1,2,3, or all 4 of the dates.

Blessings,
Beth

The posted events are open to all homeschoolers in the St. Louis, MO, area (including St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Franklin County, and Jefferson County in MO, and Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County in IL, and surrounding regions).
NOTE: Inclusion in this list does not necessarily indicate endorsement by the blog owner. I try to include as many events or classes I know of in the Greater St. Louis area that would be of special interest to homeschoolers. Some of these events come from a distinctively “Christian” perspective, while others are purely “secular” in nature. If you see things that you would not be particularly interested in, just ignore them and look for the things that do appeal to you
