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.

Nov. 22, Bham: Volunteers Needed for Sweet Potato Drop

Deb, we are set for our Sweet Potato Drop this coming Saturday at the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama, 107 Walter Davis Drive, Birmingham, AL. We will start bagging at 9am and should be done by noon. We expect to have almost 40,000 lbs and would love all the hands we can get to help bag and load he vehicles of agencies. Please pass this on to your homeschool families in the Birmingham area.

Also I expect to have some field gleaning opportunities in December of turnips and greens both in Cullman and Huntsville. I do not have a set day at the moment but can work around some of your homeschoolers schedule if that helps. Please let me know if this might be of interest. 

Hope you are staying warm,
Mary Lynn
