HOMESCHOOL DAY AT THE CAPITOL

*GHEA is excited to once again host Homeschool Day at the Georgia state Capitol! The Event will be held on Wednesday, February 2nd from 9am-3pm. Bring the whole family for a free and educational field trip! You will only need to pay for parking near the Capitol and lunch for your family (or bring your own lunch from home). A tentative schedule is below:

9am-10am convene at state Capitol rotunda for tours.  IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE IN A CAPITOL TOUR OR LEGISLATIVE CLASS YOU MUST RESERVE A SPOT FOR YOUR FAMILY. Simply email homeschoolcapitolday@gmail.com and include your first and last name, email, phone number and NUMBER OF PERSONS participating in the tour and class. We will send you an email back with your tour time as well as any information we need to update. 
*after your tour is completed you may quietly observe the Session live from the House and Senate Galleries until the next event. 

10am-11am:Meet your local legislators! it is important to make an appointment or contact your local legislator's office within the next week to let them know you'll be attending Homeschool Day at the Capitol and ask if they could meet with your family during this time. If they aren't available, PLEASE drop "goodie" bags/baskets by their offices. Homemade cookies or brownies are always a big hit! We want to show our gratitude for our public servants! If you are unsure of who your senator or representative is you may find them easily  at: (search Representative or Senator)
