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.

FREE Pen Pal Program (for both military and civilian homeschooled children)

Good Morning!

I wanted to let you know about the HSAMF (Home School Association for Military Families) Pen Pal Program for both military and civilian homeschooled children.

Our Pen Pal Program is a FREE literacy based, traditional letter writing program. It is a great way to get children writing traditional letters, a skill that is often lost in today's society, as well as make new friends with children they would otherwise not have met.

Quite honestly, it has also been a great way to work on grammar and spelling with my children, without them even realizing they are "working on school."

If you are interested, or know of any other homeschooling families interested, we encourage you to check out our website,www.hsamf.org Look for the Pen Pal Program under the Programs tab.

We also want to encourage you to sign up for our e-newsletter. Pen Pal Tidbits is a bimonthly publication that will give you fresh ideas to share with your pen pal. For example, January 26th is Australia Day, so the children are encouraged to learn something new about Australia and share it with their pen pal.

Don't forget to share this with your homeschool group and social networks. Thank you so much!

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know!
