Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Jan. 31 (Deadline Jan. 29), Montgomery: ASF Goodnight Moon Performance

Goodnight Moon

Adapted from the book by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd
Book, music and lyrics by Chad Henry
Step into the great green room as one of the most iconic children’s books of all time is brought to life. In this lively musical about children’s imaginations at bedtime, Bunny’s room magically comes alive with stunning puppetry and tap dancing bears.

DATE:  Friday, Jan. 31, 2014

TIME:  11:30 AM (Please arrive early and have children go to restroom before performance begins.  Review other rules and etiquette here:  http://www.asf.net/Education/Schoolfest/Theatre-Etiquette.aspx )

COST: $16 for students, $18 for adult chaperones but for every 15 kids, one chaperone is free. (we can do a drawing for the freebie on Thursday Jan. 30, if we get enough participants)
I am requiring a fully refundable $5 "holding fee" for this one, in order to assure a prior headcount.  You can Paypal me @  mandamama@gmail.com  and this $5 fee will be refunded the day of the event UNLESS you do not cancel by the DEADLINE (see below)  Please be sure to check the box on your Paypal account so that I do not incur added fees.  Thank you!

DEADLINE:  Please let me know you will be attending (or cancel) by Wed. Jan 29, 2014 (We can pay the day-of but I need to give them a head-count prior to our arrival.  It is imperative that you let me know, barring any unforseen illness/tragedy/accident.) 

PAYMENT FORMS: All are accepted by ASF the day-of. (For holding fee, see above;  if you do not have Paypal you can arrange to meet me or send me cash, but Paypal preferred)

AGES:  Recommended for K thru 3rd grade, but open to all ages.  Open to all Everest Academy members and any other home schooling friends. (the drawing for a free adult seat would go to Everest members first.)
Directions:  From TROY (47 Miles) and DOTHAN (103 Miles) and Tallahassee (192 Miles)
US 231 North to Southeast Blvd. (Barnes & Noble Bookstore on Right) Take a right on East Blvd. Go through seven to eight traffic lights until you see the Woodmere Blvd. turn on the right (PNC Bank on the corner). Take a right on Woodmere Blvd. Entrance to the Wynton M. Blount Cultural Park is 1/2 mile on right.

You will receive information on car-pooling after you register.

MISC:  If anyone would like to make it a day and attend the zoo after the play, please contact me (see below) 

This is a bit pricey, but for us it will be worth it to expose my younger children to the ASF and art in the form of a professional play.  Remember, your holding fee WILL be refunded unless you don't show up; save gas by car-pooling; and get your friends to sign up so we can get a "free" chaperone fee!   Our family plans to do at least one ASF production each year.
