Homeschool Days and Weeks 2019

Alright, alright, alright!

Homeschool Days and Weeks 2019

Hi, this is Ranela from Filipino American Homeschooler YouTube and Facebook Page! I have 4 homeschooling kids from three years old to thirteen.

If I were to categorize myself as a homeschooler, I would put myself under the Dazed and Confused category. I never know how the year will actually be filled, but this school year, I’m attempting something different and I’m sharing my plans with you. In this blog post, I will share the homeschool weeks of several places we want to visit.

Special thanks to the Happy Homeschooler for allowing me to guest post about homeschool days and weeks 2019! 

This post idea all started when my friend Nancy tagged me in a homeschool week promo for LEGO Land Discovery Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It prompted me to ask the Happy Homeschooler if she already had a list this year, and she does not! 

HOMESCHOOL WEEKS are promotional weeks for certain establishments to encourage homeschoolers to visit and see the different activities their facilities offer. The cost of entrance is usually half the regular price. Normally, we would not be able to afford the regular price, so having the discounted prices allows us to add it into our budget. 

So without further ado, here’s my list of homeschool days and weeks 2019:

Homeschool Masquerade Ball

Homeschool Masquerade Ball is a formal event for homeschooled teens all across NJ. As the name states it is actually a Ball! A great reason to get dressed up an have fun with friends. Do not be scared off by the formality of the event, most kids don’t come as dates, but more just as a group of friends. All the participants have to be masked. Throughout the night they have dinner, dancing, and then a great unmasking. Many kids get very creative with their costumes. There is a great website for the event that has a whole bunch of information about it. You can see it here: Homeschool Masquerade Ball Website.

Sandy Hook Beach Concerts

Sandy Hook Foundation sponsors a number of great concerts throughout the summer: Sandy Hook Beach Concerts.  The bands change every year, and it is always a good time.  It is a beautiful place to go and meet with other NJ homeschooling families during the summer.  The concert is on beach E, in Sandy Hook.  If you come after 5 pm, the entrance to the beach is free, though many folks choose to come earlier.  The concert actually goes from 6 to 8.  If you do decide to come earlier, the cost is $15.00 a family.  Over the years we have found it easiest to park in lot D, and walk over to E.  Lot E gets pretty full quickly.
