Fall Festival Talent Show

A brand new CHARIS event!

Does your child have a talent or interest that doesn't quite translate to a table display at the annual Student Expo? Would a stage and a microphone, perhaps some musical accompaniment, offer a better platform?

Cue the Fall Festival! 

Vocal or instrumental music, dance, drama, comic routines, magic tricks, unique abilities—the sky is the limit! Whether your child would enjoy performing in front of a friendly audience, or you would just like to come and be entertained for an evening of fun and fellowship with friends, join us for this celebration of talent.

This festival is slated for November. Watch for more information in the updates email and the next newsletter, which will include location, time, and how to sign up. This could be the start of a new CHARIS favorite!

Used Curriculum/Book Sale

Next event: Spring 2019

Open to public. Sellers & shoppers invited.

Email: leaders@mycharis.org to inquire about selling. Space is limited.

Student Expo/Ice Cream Social

Next event: Spring 2019

The annual Student Expo has long been a CHARIS Members favorite (and not just because it ends with an ice cream social!). Kids enjoy displaying projects they've poured their time and effort into and admiring those of other students, and we've even enjoyed musical and dance performances and live animals (crated/caged, of course).

Now the Expo will also give our budding entrepreneurs a chance to promote their businesses and sell their goods to each other, friends, family and neighbors. Students can sell any number of handmade creations such as baked goods, jewelry, art, crafts, bookmarks, plants—the sky is the limit.

Older students who offer services such as lawn care or childcare are welcome to set up a booth advertising their company to the local community. This event is for homeschooling kids of all ages. Even the youngest student can simply bake cookies and practice making change while earning a few dollars.

Mom's Retreat

You asked for it and now it’s in the works! The CHARIS Moms day retreat is in its early stages of planning. This event will take place in late winter/early spring, so stay tuned for details.
