As our Barnes & Noble Educator Appreciation Days
approach (Oct 10-18), I wanted to take a moment to let you know that
Barnes & Noble Webster Place offers Homeschooling parents a 20%
discount on most book purchases made for the homeschool classroom year
round through our Educator Discount Card program. And, during Educator
Appreciation Days, the discount increases to 25%!
We have made applying for the Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card
easy for homeschooling parents – they can apply by simply identifying
themselves as parents who homeschool their children and completing the
Educator Discount Card application here at the store. No letters or
other information is required for homeschooling parents to participate
in this discount program.
Check this out at the Chicago location at 1441 West Webster Avenue.
You could also follow up with other local Barnes and Noble stores if this is not convenient.
Christian Life Center in Tinley Park is sponsoring
a Homeschool Support Group and their first “Meet-n-Greet” is the first
step in offering a central support group in the Chicago south suburbs.
Join us as we discuss the needs of our south side homeschoolers: i.e.
curriculum fairs & teacher workshops, student science and history
fairs, family movie nights, performance platforms (fine arts, poetry
slams, modest fashion show, etc.), family banquet and dance, and end
of year graduation service.
Open to all families that practice homeschooling or are interested in
finding out more about it! They will meet the first Friday of each
month throughout the school year for a family activity and the third
Tuesday of each month for a “Mom’s Night Out.” (No meetings in

American Foundry Society is hosting a manufacturing day event.
October 2, 2015 10:00am – 3:30pm
1695 N Penny Ln
Schaumburg, IL 60173
Visit the American Foundry Society and play in the sand with metalcasting. Learn how castings are made, applications and uses in everyday life, and the endless career opportunities possible. Participants will make their very own casting to take home, as long as supplies last.
Attention: Safety gear will be provided. No open toe shoes can be worn. Students under 18 years old must be accompanied by parents or teachers. Groups of more than five persons must register in advance.
This event has been designed with home schoolers in mind, since it provides a good science lesson for the kids and a field trip all in one! Each adult and child will be able to make a metal trinket in a sand mold and the older kids can even pour their own metal. Open to the public.
