CT Home Educator’s Capitol Day

Tuesday - March 21, 2017
 

 

We’re Doing It Again!  Families from across the State representing TEACH and other homeschool organizations will be meeting at Connecticut’s State Capitol for a day filled with fun and learning during our 2017 CT Home Educator’s Capitol Day event.  Our objective?  To provide a presence, a handshake, and a word of thanks to our legislators, letting them know we appreciate the homeschooling freedom we enjoy in Connecticut! 

In addition to educational activities designed to expand your civics knowledge, there will also be opportunity to meet your state representatives, become informed about current political issues, and tour our beautiful State Capitol. Don’t miss out on Capitol Day 2017!
