The object of teaching a child is to enable the child to get along without the teacher. We need to educate our children for their future, not our past.

    Kidsclub2 (TennKidsClub) - Email list for the website, a website devoted to information dissemination for all home schoolers in the Knoxville/Oak Ridge/East Tennessee area. Anyone homeschooling is welcome to join this large online group comprised of home schoolers in this area. This is a very active list with lots of information on home school activities, area events, co-operative education opportunities, social get-togethers, field trips, and sharing of educational ideas.

    Please do not send any jokes, prayers, prayer requests, evangelistic-flavored messages, political messages, sales pitches, chain letters, anything that could be considered controversial or an inflammatory subject (including, but not limited to posts about alternative lifestyles or those who support them,) anything that requires a warning or statement that it is not appropriate for children, etc. to the list. Remember to keep your posts home school-related.

    Posts of things for sale or wanted are fine, even if they are not home school items. When you are posting items for sale or that you are looking for, please include all items in one email, rather than sending out multiple emails listing each item separately.

    This group does not allow attachments to be distributed to the members; files and photos can be uploaded to the list homepage instead. If you are wanting to post specific items to sell or purchase,even if they are not home school related, please list everything in one email together, rather than sending out several separate emails. With over 800 members on our list, this is the only way we can keep the emails down to a manageable number.
