This week is busy the QC. for homeschooling families and charter schools alike. I want to share the news with you regarding two awesome events in particular. Both of them are free and begins tonight and ends Saturday*. Read below for details.
National School Choice Week Charter Fairs sponsored by Banyan Consulting Group & Northwestern Mutual Parents can learn more about dozens of local charter schools on Thursday, January 29, 2015. Nearly two hundred people are expected to attend the fair, which will be held from 6:30 p.m – 8:30 p.m. at Holiday Inn- University (8520 University Executive Park Drive, Charlotte, NC 28262).
Teachers and student leaders from 25 North Carolina charter schools will be on hand to provide parents with more information and application instructions. The event is timed to coincide with National School Choice Week. This school fair is hosted by the North Carolina Public Charter Schools Association. The Association’s mission is to grow and sustain high quality public charter schools that nourish North Carolina’s children and enrich their families. NC Public Charter Schools Association is a membership coalition of NC charter schools established to serve, represent, and advocate for the interests of the schools and their children, parents, educators, and staff.
