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.
~ Arthur C. Clarke

    Utah Email Lists, Support Groups, Message Boards, Forums and Newsletters (S - Z)

    Sandy_Homeschool (Sandy Home Schoolers) - This purpose of this group is to help connect homeschoolers in the Sandy/Draper area, and to provide a forum to post activities that are closer to home, so we don't have to drive all over the valley for activities and social outlets for our children. We invite all types of homeschoolers to join including full to part time homeschoolers, old and new homeschoolers and those considering homeschooling. This group will be unmoderated unless we run into problems.

    To Subscribe, visit Sandy_Homeschool.

    servantsheartacademy (Servants Heart Academy Homeschool Group) - Welcome to the SHAHG Homeschool Group! We are based in Weber County, but all families in Utah are welcome. As veteran Homeschoolers, we are here to support and encourage all homeschooling families. SHAHG is an all inclusive group for families homeschooling, regardless of race, homeschooling style or religion. Our goal is to provide an outreach for ALL homeschoolers who want to meet others and be involved in activities together. SHAHG provides this list as a resource for their members so they can support and network with each other and receive notices about SHAHG activities as well as other homeschool resources. SHAHG will sponsor several Homeschool Teen dance activities throughout the year, as well as a Science Fair. These activities will take place at The Genesis Project in Ogden.

    PLEASE NOTE: Membership to this group is by approval and the group is moderated.

    SLC-AP-HS (AP/homeschool SLC playgroup) - This group is for moms in the SLC area to discuss meeting times and playgroups. It isn't really a discussion list, though it can be if the members start discussing. At our monthly playgroups we discuss attachment parenting(babywearing, breastfeeding, cosleeping etc), childbirth(including homebirth), extended nursing(nursing past age two), and home-educating. Most of the ladies that come to the playgroup use the Thomas Jefferson Education method of home-educating.

    To Subscribe, visit SLC-AP-HS.

    SLC-HS-sports (SLC Home School Sports Club) - This is a group for The Salt Lake Home School Sports Club. We are a group of home school families that like to study different sports and play them. The purpose of this group is to let members of the club discuss ideas and see when and where events are scheduled.

    To Subscribe, visit SLC-HS-sports.

    SUHG (Southern Utah Homeschool Group) - Southern Utah Homeschool Support Group serves St. George, Washington, Hurricane and surrounding cities. We are united by the desire to provide a positive and open-minded homeschooling community for our children.

    We provide the following to support your homeschooling efforts: a community of friends for adults and children through Weekly Park Days, holiday/seasonal parties, Scholastic book orders, information about homeschooling or educational opportunities around the valley, Mom’s Night Out, monthly field trips, and more.

    We welcome everyone to our group that is willing to be open-minded and allow others to be who they are without judgment. We do not like to say we are a secular group because for many homeschooling families their faith is a large reason for home schooling. We as parents accept the opportunity and responsibility to teach our own children about differences and the appreciation of them. Having said this, we want you to understand that our focus is not on religion or politics, but simply home schooling and supporting the home schooling families that are members of our group with friends, fun, information and good times.

    To Subscribe, visit SUHG.

    TooeleHomeschoolers (Tooele Homeschoolers) - Tooele Homeschoolers is a group of friends who share concerns, questions and triumphs of home education. Monthly articles may spark discussions on topics of interest also. Please see our guidelines below.

    1. NO FLAMES OR SPAM. Please don’t send forwarded chain type e-mails. Doing so will put you on moderated status or cause you to be banned from the list.
    2. Please send all announcements for activities to the Tooele Newsletter, keeping this group free from formal announcements. This will give the group more of a question and answer atmosphere.
    3. This is intended to be a local group. There may be some discussions concerning the Salt Lake area that are applicable, but discussions should apply to local home educators. Any discussions outside of Tooele and Salt Lake areas should be carefully considered before posting.
    4. Please don’t post ANY personal information such as addresses and phone numbers. If you want to be contacted by those on the group, they should reply via e-mail. Then you can send your personal information via a message directed to that person. This is to protect you.
    5. Trim your e-mails when responding to a message. It isn’t generally necessary to quote the entire message to which you are responding. Each time you send a message to the group, Yahoo adds info to the end of that message. If you are replying, please cut this extra information out of your reply, as well as anything else that is not necessary.
    6. If you're replying to a specific person, please consider whether it is really something the entire group needs to know. If not, please send your message to the individual off list. To do this, click on the highlighted name of the individual at the top of their message

We meet in the Salt Lake area for field trips, parties, high adventure, book clubs, classes, swimming and more. We meet once a month in the afternoon. This group welcomes racial, ethnic, religious, and family diversity.

To Subscribe, visit tweensandteens.

Utah-hs - This moderated list is open to all homeschoolers in Utah, regardless of religion, homeschool styles, etc etc etc. It's a great place for info on field trips, events and activities, support groups, dealing with school districts, and general homeschool questions and discussions. A bit of general info is also welcome (looking for a doctor or a recipe, selling a bit of furniture or used curriculum, etc).

Selling things - or marketing products or services, for yourself or others - should be an infrequent event for an individual, though. If you have a website where you are selling things, you are welcome to put a line or two with the url, under the signature on your posts.

Out of respect for the diverse membership of the list, religious and political discussions (and similarly charged topics) are off-limits on the list. And of course, no flaming or personal attacks. And no forwarded material - it's either a hoax or we've already seen it, probably several times. Last but not least, the list-owner runs the list, therefore she calls the shots.

If you get to feeling stymied by the rules of this list, fear not! There IS an outlet for your avant-garde posts. :-) Just go to the "Utah-hs-discussion" email list, at Utah-hs-discussion. Or, to the "Utah-HS-Politics" email list, at Utah-HS-Politics. Both of those lists allow flurries of posts on all topics, but no flaming.

To Subscribe, visit Utah-hs.

Utah-hs-discussion (Utah Homeschool Discussion Group) - This group is for all Utah homeschoolers to discuss homeschooling. All homeschool styles, religions (or no religion) are welcome. It's ok to post off topic, and all opinions are welcome. No flaming allowed, but spirited discussion is fine. Just be respectful and no foul language. No spamming, however you may include an advertisement in your signature line. For any other advertisement, please clear it with the list moderator first.

FOR NEW MEMBERS: Please be aware that all new members are moderated for a while, in order to weed out spammers. If your first messages take a while to post, it's because the list owner has to approve them. Most new members are taken off moderation within a short time.

To Subscribe, visit Utah-hs-discussion.

UtahHSPolitics (This list is open to all homeschoolers in Utah) - This list was design to provide a forum to Utah homeschoolers to discuss politics that effect them in one way or another. Please be respectful of other people's feeling and beliefs.
