Grown Homeschooler Initiative
The Future of MAHN

The Methuen Area Homeschooling Network organizes a variety of events for the local homeschooling community, including a weekly homeschooling group for the whole family; fun and educational fieldtrips; workshops for parents; park dates during the summer; and potluck parties, including our annual Halloween party!

We take at least one fieldtrip per month.  We try to take fieldtrips that relate to the educational theme that our weekly group has chosen for that month, but often take additional fieldtrips to performances and other fun destinations.

A member of our weekly group volunteered to host a workshop on local wildlife put on by the Conservation Officer for the town of Methuen MA.

We have a few potluck gatherings over the course of every academic year, and these are open to all local homeschooling families.

One of the highlights of our 2004-5 academic year was bringing in nationally recognized performer Marilyn Middleton-Sylla for a workshop on African culture, including African dance & drumming.  Marilyn was so captivating that she had parents and children alike making beautiful music and dancing like pros!
