SUPPORT GROUPS, CO-OPS, CLASSES, TUTORS
Find social groups, supplemental classes, co-ops, and tutors to help you on your homeschool journey.
NNHS does not support or endorse any group, class, or tutor, but rather provides a list of available resources that may help you as an additional resource.
If you don't see a group in your area, consider starting one! It can be simple, like meeting at a park every week (we recommend starting off by meeting at the same time, place, and day each week to get the group going); or it can be more complex, like a co-op offering classes. Please email your group information or class/tutoring info to firstname.lastname@example.org

Carson Valley Homeschoolers
NNHS publishes this list as a convenience and resource for our homeschool community. These are not official NNHS sanctioned events, they are opportunities for homeschool moms to connect with other homeschool moms and kids to play together. We encourage you to take safety precautions of wearing masks and playing games that will keep the kids 6 feet apart from one another. Please see a list of ideas for play apart together games after the list of park days.
