The following activities and events, as well as others, are offered each year as members volunteer to lead.
Occurring throughout the school year, GWCHE-organized field trips are a gem — a true can’t-miss for so many of our GWCHE families. Our Field Trip team organizes many, but they’ve set up a great system so you can organize your own for the group. Field Trips are a great opportunity to walk and learn alongside other GWCHE families.
Held in August at the first GWCHE General Meeting, the Resource Fair features repsesentatives from local organizations offering classes, resources or other benefits to the homeschool community.
Usually held at the November GWCHE General Meeting, the GWCHE History Fair welcomes projects of all shapes and sizes from all grades (PreK-12). Students in grades 5-9 may be interested in participating in the Regional History Fair held at Baylor University in February after our fair.
Held in January, the Science Fair is a great way for your child to develop scientific abilities. Students in grades 6+ may be interested in participating in the Central Texas Science & Engineering Fair with their work from our fair.
