NOW OPEN!! 2019-2020 United Community of Homeschoolers Unlimited Membership registration.

July 31 is the expiration date of membership with UCHU-AA each year.

NEW MEMBER’S ARE WELCOME TO JOIN NOW AS WELL!!

Use the link below:
2019-2020 Membership Application  <<click here

Buttttttt…….. that doesn’t mean UCHU-AA (United Community of Homeschoolers Unlimited – Accountability Association) does not have open membership throughout the year.

Current members of UCHU-AA will want to re-register anytime they desire.

Be sure, however, that you re-register BEFORE you actually begin homeschooling in your new homeschooling year.

Current members, your legal status of homeschooling with UCHU-AA ends July 31. So if you were not going to begin your new homeschooling year until September 2019 THEN BE SURE TO RE-REGISTER BEFORE you begin!

Else you would be homeschooling illegally and could face truancy charges.

If you are new to UCHU-AA and are ready to become a member in order to have legal homeschooling status and it happens to be in December. …….No worries.

Just register BEFORE you began homeschooling in order to honor the law and not find yourself an illegal homeschooler.

As the home educator you have the freedom to decide when your homeschooling year begins.

Whenever that is just be sure to register with UCHU-AA.

The goal is to honor the Option 3 law and reach 180 days in your homeschooling year.

To learn more of what that looks like…..join me in the Member’s Only section for details on this subject.

Until then…….HAVE A HAPPY AND FUN HOMESCHOOLING YEAR!!!

My time is YOUR time!

One of the many aspects of my Option 3 association that I seek to ensure is in tact is the idea of my availability to my members.

When I was a member of another association the fact that I could never reach someone in the office when I needed them or had questions that I would desire an answer for right away was never afforded me….I knew I wanted better.

United Community of Homeschoolers Unlimited members have access to me literally 24 hrs a day.

Members are able to reach me several ways and have done so for years.

* Email Me! I have all notifications come to my cell phone. I get them right away. Even if it is after hours many times I will answer the email right away. UCHUThirdOption@gmail.com

* Text Me! My cell phone number is located in several places for you to send me a quick text message to ask questions, clarify things, let me know when you have received paperwork for me, etc. 864.300.2236 TEXT ME! Leave a message. This google voice number will transcribe your message and I can at least read it.

* Chat with me by phone! You can set up 15-min conversations by phone as you need. They fill quickly but I WANT and DESIRE to speak with you as needed. You can schedule a time and date that works best for you via my virtual calendar http://www.calendly.com/UCHUThirdOption/15min

*Social media message me! As previously mentioned my cell phone is usually close by me. This means that any notifications received on facebook via United Community of Homeschoolers face book page or my personal page I receive your messages.

* Message me on UCHUnlimited.com! I have members reach me via the website too.

I am here for you!

There is NEVER a reason why members of my association should feel as though they can’t reach me immediately or at least within 24 hours or less.

If I am on travel, which I have been a lot lately, you should still be able to reach me.

In January – February 2019 I was in Ghana, Africa. Guess what? I spoke on the phone with a member. I spoke on the phone with a person who desired membership. I returned emails daily. Answered text messages. And had members schedule phone chats with me.

Even if on another continent I am reachable!! 🙂

Additionally, each year I PURPOSEFULLY REACH OUT TO YOU!

Care calls/Care texts!

Did you receive at least one this year? An email? Newsletter? Videos personally from me?

Yes…..I am reachable and I outreach to you as well. It is my delight to do so.

I serve YOU!

While my time IS valuable, my time is NOT TOO precious that my members feel they can not reach me.

Please never EVER feel the latter.

If you have utilized all the above mentioned methods of communication and I STILL don’t reach you then I have failed in my service to you.

I doubt and am assured this will never happen because I AM ALWAYS REACHABLE!

Always and forever…… Serving You and Yours!

(Be sure to share this post! You just never know who is a homeschooling parent here in South Carolina desiring an Option 3 director that THEY CAN REACH. 🙂

UCHU-AA Member Note!! (heart)

My purpose driven life is…….

“To make a positive impact on 1,000s of homeschoolers worldwide.”

The first place I desire to do that is right here in South Carolina.

Then throughout the country and the world.

When I receive kind emails as the one below…… I am touched deeply!

It makes all the work I do worth it. ((heart))

 Thanks Angela for ALL of your help, guidance & positivity this past year.  The ‘home~school’ experience was something that I was completely unfamiliar with. I must admit that I was also innocuously stubborn towards Jordan in the beginning for wanting to give this a try. Mainly because she has had a propensity for not following thru with MANY of her ideas in the past.  BUT, me wanting to allow my children (2 girls/15&12) the opportunity to make their own choices as long as they understand that ‘daddy’ is ALSO going to allow them to experience the consequences of said choices!  Whether they be positive or negative.
  Jordan surprised me COMPLETELY with her dedication, patience & diligence but, I was mostly impressed with her INTEGRITY!!  15 is a tough/rough age for boys and girls. Soooo much temptation and pressure from every direction.  I am so very proud of my sweet lil christian  daughter.  She did well and deserves all the bragging by her daddy(moi) that is sooo embarrassing to her!!!  
  *You* have been the main reason for most of our success this school year Mrs. A.J. Perry.  From the beginning into the middle and throughout to the end.  It definitely would not have been a success were it not for your involvement and TRUE CARE & PASSION FOR WHAT YOU DO FOR SO MANY. “Thank you”  just doesn’t seem enough!!!😇👏💌
  Respectfully, 
  Jamey & Jordan Robbins
I look forward to serving you and your family as well!!!

Congratulations Parents who graduated a student this year!!!!

When I graduated my first student six years ago it was so surreal!

My first homeschool graduate. I did it! We did it!

There is nothing like it.

Then after graduating the 2nd child and then the 3rd child…… I knew that this was the best journey I could have chosen for my children.

So to all of you PARENTS who have graduated a high school homeschool student this year ……

dallas-reedy-nG2M4XckEyI-unsplash

For each of you parents you have been working diligently for years with your student in their academics, moving into adulthood and loving themselves on this journey of homeschooling.

Congrats!

Way to Go!

YOU DID IT!!

I am so glad to share this occasion with you while serving as your Option 3 Accountability Association director!!

(psst….. this years Kindergarten and High School graduation pics are coming)

(video) The question: To follow the public school grade state education standards or not to follow the public school grade state education standards?

When I first began homeschooling in Virginia the state standards for education were my life line.

I went to the Virginia Department of Education and located their state education standards FOR EACH GRADE LEVEL.

Unsure of what my children needed to learn and unsure of the curriculum I should use I began using their guidelines and the knowledge I knew along with paper and pencil.

And our homeschooling journey was on the way.

Later that year I learned of Abeka and included that into our studies.

My oldest then turned four years old and would use Abeka for all subjects along with her siblings until I was able to cut the ‘apron strings’ of the state standards.

More experienced, I only choose a few subjects from Abeka that I felt were worthwhile and mixed up my curriculum. Oh my!!!

What I was finding is that my children were passing the state standards for education at an alarmingly fast rate while using Abeka. (www.Abeka.com)

In many subjects they were on 3rd grade level at 4 and 5 years old.

Sooooooo…..I just stuck with Abeka until I expanded my wings to learn about other curriculum and homeschooling resources.

Check out this video release regarding following state standards of education or not to follow them.

(Be sure to share with a friend or family member or on your social medial or all resources. You just never know who needs to know this information and be released from the heavy weight of ‘MUST MEET THE STATE STANDARDS.’)

Loosing YOURSELF while homeschooling YOUR children? DON’T. DO. IT! (video)

As a homeschooling Mom of NINETEEN YEARS I have probably gone through all the ebbs and flow of home educating my own children.

Personally, I am a RED personality. A-type.

Follow the rules.

Goal oriented.

Goal focused.

Driven.

Planner.

Over-achiever.

So you can probably imagine how my homeschool ran, looked and flowed from day to day in the beginning years.

There was no place for error.

Well……in the midst of my perfect homeschooling journey – I LOST MYSELF!

So here is what NOT TO DO.

As well as, WHAT TO DO during your homeschooling journey.

JUST DON’T LOOSE YOURSELF!

 

Have you lost yourself homeschooling Momma?

If so, how? what ways? Are you going to make some changes if you have? If so, what are you gonna do? (this is called accountability) (smile)

(Share this on your social media platform, with a friend-girl, family member…..a homeschooling Momma/Daddy. You just never know who needs to hear this  message.)

Reminder….. Transcripts/Report Cards due date

UCHU Members,

A friendly reminder…..

Each of you received a text message with the newsletter for April 2019 with details about transcripts and report cards. The newsletter was also emailed to your email on record.

Here is a reminder of the deadlines IF you’d like me to calculate transcripts with ranking and/or report cards.

As a reminder BY OPTION 3 LAW I DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE THESE FOR YOU. You may do so yourselves. 🙂

cropped-cropped-ucohu-logo3.png

For homeschool high schoolers with transcripts I will:

*provide gpa calculations

*class ranking (needed for various state scholarships)

*official association identified transcript

As for report cards…..

These are not necessary at all. Some families like to have them for memorabilia. Others need them if they plan to have their child return to public school. Some of you don’t give grades at this level of studies and that is okay too. 🙂

However, both servies are included in the membership with UCHU-AA.

Here are the deadlines:

Transcripts must be submitted by Friday, May 31, 2019.

Report cards  must be submitted by Monday, July 15, 2019. These will not be completed until after this date.

Transcripts will have full focus before report cards are completed.

If you have questions regarding completing the forms for transcripts or report cards DO NOT hesitate to reach out to me via email or text.

If a phone call is needed to chat through a few things then schedule a time on my virtual calendar at http://www.calendly.com/UCHUThirdOption/15min

Serving you and yours,

Angela
