Ray and Charlene Notgrass to visit CERC

e5210e7b-ef33-d936-064a-1a0011b0e31e

(from the Notgrass website)
Ray and Charlene Notgrass are veteran homeschooling parents who love history. They have enjoyed visiting historic sites around Texas. The photos above are from the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, and a point on the Chisholm Trail in Fort Worth.
 
They will be in Rowlett on March 4 with a fun presentation for parents. Ray will share fascinating stories from American history, looking at how faith, compassion, and determination have motivated people to work for the greater good. Charlene will talk about how you can use field trips near and far to learn about history, even with limited time and a limited budget.

 

When: Saturday, March 4, 2017, at 11:00 am

 
The program will last about an hour with time to chat and ask questions. You will also have an opportunity to browse Notgrass History resources that help homeschooling parents teach the heart, soul, and mind.

Valentine Program

Let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day!

valentines-day-header4.gif
The families of elementary students enrolled in CERC classes are invited to exchange Valentine’s cards and enjoy some fun activities!
When: Friday, February 12th  1:00-2:30 PM
Where: CERC
(Please note:  This is not a drop-off event.  At least one responsible adult family member must stay with the student(s) for the duration of the activity.)
Please write your family’s name, email address, and the number of children who will be exchanging Valentine’s cards on the signup sheet located in the foyer at CERC.
On the day of the party, please bring Valentine’s cards for exchanging and a decorated box or bag to use as a “mailbox.”  You will receive an email the week before the date which will tell you how many cards to prepare.
Cards
In the “to” spot on the cards just write “My Friend.”  The cards may be plain or may have small treats attached.  They may be store-bought or homemade. (Get those creative juices flowing!!)
Mailboxes
Shoeboxes make great mailboxes and can be decorated in many cute ways.  Keep the boxes as plain or creative as you want.  They just need to be big enough to hold the cares and treats.
Please contact Tabitha Berry, Program Director, at
etebberry@yahoo.com with any questions you may have!
