Join us, along with the Internet Safety Specialist from the Attorney General’s Office, as we continue in our efforts to protect and educate our children.

keep an eye on the fb page or the email list the week before-usually there is a roll call of who plans to come and what they might bring. if you have a table the group can use to set up food on, that would be great.

This is for the whole family, all ages, new or old homeschoolers, dads too. We usually stay until its dark. Maybe bring a flashlight to help pack up at the end!

Loyola Beach Day (Tuesdays)

Loyola Beach – Greenleaf Avenue Entrance
Tuesdays, starting at noon onward.
beach2
Homeschoolers need to stay connected during the summer months too!!! With classes not running (as much) in the summer, Tuesdays becomes a day of sand and water worship. Meet us down at Loyola Beach for some all day sun and fun!
beach3
We meet at the **Greenleaf Avenue Entrance**. There is a parking lot with very reasonable hourly rates right in front of the shoreline. When you pull in you will see a playground and the Heartland Café little food hut. Follow the boardwalk between the too down to the water and find a friendly group of homeschoolers camped out in a great location to keep an eye on both the playground and the water at the same time.You can usually find the group by a hoard of umbrellas.
This is also just about 4 blocks from the Morse stop Red Line. And there is free parking on Sheridan and west of Sheridan Road.
Some families will arrive earlier than noon, but we put noon -5:30pm as that is when you will find the bulk of folks there. Feel free to come earlier and stay later!
Happy Summer!
