Saint Louis Area Homeschool Shooting Sports
Home Schooling families in the St. Louis region: do you have kids, ages 10+ through high school, interested in shooting sports? Whether their interests involve shotgun, rifle or pistol (or if they’re not sure), we may have an opportunity that appeals to them, and now may be an opportune time to get involved.
The competition season will be winding down soon for the Saint Louis Interceptors Homeschool Shotgun Team, and registration will be open for the 2017-2018 season starting September 1st. If shooting clay targets in flight in the sports of trap and/or skeet might appeal to your youth then consider coming out to a practice this summer to see if they might be interested in joining the team for the 2018 season. Practices are on Tuesday evenings at Saint Louis Skeet & Trap Club in Pacific, MO.
In addition, we are starting a new (yet to be named) pistol and rifle action shooting team. Like the shotgun team, registration for the 2017-2018 season will be open on September 1st, but our first practice (which will be an educational classroom session) will be next Monday, 6/26, 6:00 pm at Eagle Eye USA indoor range in Wentzville, MO. This session will be $5.00 per youth participant; parents are welcome and encouraged to sit in. Practices will be on Mondays at 6:00 pm at the same location.
If you’re interested in participating, have questions or would like more information, please email Monty Schrunk at monty@slahss.org
Feel free to share this information with homeschoolers around the Saint Louis area.

Missouri Homeschool Convention
Please stick with us this year!  Please don’t assume it will be anything less than what we have offered in the past–it will be better!  The Deans and their assistants are wonderful people who really care about homeschoolers.  They think very much like the Expo Board–they believe that homeschoolers should make their own decisions about their own families.  They realize the diversity in the homeschool community and all are welcome through their doors. However, most of the talks are from a Christian perspective because that is who they are too.
*Workshop talk schedule can be found here: https://www.greathomeschoolconventions.com/locations/missouri/#schedule (It may change a bit before the event, so be sure to check the website closer to the date.)
*Please share this with everyone you know!
*Last count I made was 52 exhibitors and we only used to have about 60 because that’s all we could fit in.  So that is not much different from the expo.
*Expo board members plan to be there helping as much as we can!
*Go to this website page and please sign up today:

*Did you know that conservative blogger, Matt Walsh, will be speaking Saturday evening to end the conference?  I know that many of you follow his blog!
*Both HSLDA and our own, Families for Home Education (FHE), will be represented!
*You will see lots of your friends there and many will be volunteering, just like in years past–it will still be a great reunion place!
*Abby Brookman (now Abby Odehnal and new mommy) will be running the kitchen just like she always has and you know she tries hard to make the food healthy, yet affordable.
*Thursday will be free—just like it always has been!!!!!
Mark your calendar and plan to get away and enjoy yourself on July 13-15. You will be glad you did!
Thanks!
The Board of the Greater St. Louis Area Home Educators (Expo)

2017-2018 School Year
Tuesdays 9:40-1:00   First Evangelical Free Church

The Chemistry course is designed for homeschool high school students. The class will meet 3 hours a week for 16 weeks per semester. The first two hours of the course will focus on the content of Chemistry. This will consist of answering questions from the homework the previous week, a quiz, and teaching of new material through lecture and examples. Most weeks the last hour will consist of a lab where the students will have the opportunity to experience Chemistry first hand. The class includes over 25 labs as well as notes, grades, test, quizzes, labs, homework, and the text.

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
