Barnes & Noble Educator Appreciation Days are in process through Sunday, October 17. Educators receive a 25% discount on most resources during appreciation days (rather than the normal 20%). As an added bonus, educators get 10% off most CDs and DVDs. Simply present an Educator Discount Card (available with proof of schooling status at stores — homeschoolers should be able to use their HEAV membership card or Notice of Intent) and state-issued photo ID at any Barnes & Noble bookstore to enjoy the savings.

Many stores are also having special events during this week. HEAV has arranged to offer Homeschool Q&A workshops at several locations. We hope you’ll be able to join us there!

This is the perfect opportunity for parents curious about home education or those with homeschool questions to hear a brief overview of homeschooling in Virginia and talk with an experienced homeschooler! We would also love for veteran homeschoolers to stop by and say hello!

Please join us at a workshop near you, and spread the word about these free opportunities to your friends, e-lists, Yahoo groups, etc. We need your help in making this statewide outreach successful!

    I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you sharing all these wonderful workshops for homeschoolers! And I am very excited to share this information with my online support group for Virginia homeschoolers. I know that HEAV has helped so many families over the years with your informative website. Both new to homeschooling and veterans of homeschooling cherish the services that you provide.
    Thank you very much!
