Join us for our 2nd annual field day for homeschoolers sponsored by HCHE Student Council! We will have competitive running events for boys and girls ages 7 through adult (so dads and moms can join in the fun too!). There will be a softball toss, fun races and a special area with games just for younger children. All participants will receive a ribbon and competitive events will have ribbons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. We will also have a family tug of war competition, ultimate frisbee game and of course a water fight! Field Day is FREE and is open to ALL homeschool families – you do not have to be a member of HCHE, so please share with families that may be interested in attending. Registration starts at 9:30 am and events begin promptly at 10:00 am. Water will be available but please bring your own snacks/lunch. You may also want to bring sunscreen, hats, and lawn chairs. The gates will be open on the north side of the field, near the parking lot and restrooms. This is an event you don’t want to miss! Please RSVP so we know how many to expect. See you there!

For the second year, the Sharlot Hall Museum is offering “A Day in the Life” program on June 23 and 24, 9:30 to 3:30 p.m. This program is designed to allow children, ages 6 to 13, to learn about the work and games of both Yavapai and pioneer children during the 19th century. The two-day program involves fun, educational activities such as archery, sewing, reading animal footprints, Victorian games, and butter churning. It is a cross cultural program and the participants will be home schooled youth, as well as children from the Yavapai Prescott Indian Tribe. Enrollment is limited to 15 homeschooled and 15 Yavapai youngsters.
Children from the same family within the age range of 6-13 may attend. We recommend not bringing younger children, such as toddlers and infants, because they will not be able to join in the activities. One parent from each family may stay at the museum during the program, but this is not required. There will be no charge for the event. Participants will need to bring their own lunch one day, and lunch will be provided another day. To learn more about the program and to register, please contact Mary Melcher at firstname.lastname@example.org or (928-445-3122, ext. 29) Sharlot Hall Museum, 415 W. Gurley St., Prescott, AZ 86301.
