Social Gatherings ~
We invite all CHAPLET members, or
anyone interested in joining CHAPLET, to attend monthly gatherings for
socialization and support among parents (nursing
babies welcome). These will be held throughout most of the
school year ~ it’s a great opportunity to get to know your local Catholic
homeschool community! We hope to see
you at our next CHAPLET social.
Business Meetings ~
CHAPLET conducts three “business” meetings per year simply to discuss current and upcoming events
and activities within the group.
Meetings hosted by our Volunteers, and of course, all CHAPLET
members are welcome to attend.
Members will be notified via the Yahoo! loop when these meetings
will take place, and notes from the discussions are always posted to loop
within the week following.
CHAPLET Volunteers step up to serve
the group on a regular basis in the areas of membership, our directory, funds,
field trips, events & activities, maintaining our calendar and Yahoo!
loop, and our website. The only
requirement for these Volunteers is that they be a Catholic member of
CHAPLET for at least one year, and it is requested that they attend the
three yearly business meetings. On a
rare occasion, an additional business meeting may be called as needs arise.
Dues & Membership ~
Minimal yearly dues* per family will be collected at the first social gathering in
September to aid CHAPLET events and activities. A welcome letter upon payment and
completed registration form will give new members access to our password
protected Yahoo! group website which will connect you to other CHAPLET
members and give you all the information you need about our various groups
and activities, plus links to great homeschool resources for you and your
Note ~ DUES MUST BE
PAID BY SEPTEMBER 30th so that our
directory can be printed and distributed in October. Cost of dues will increase after
September 30th for any member who has not paid. New members, however, are always welcome
throughout the year with the initial dues fee, and will be added (upon payment) to our online directory.

The Yahoo! Loop ~
Our password protected Yahoo!
Group website (referred to as “the
Yahoo! loop”) is a way for
members to communicate with each other via posts on the site. This may include announcements, prayer
requests, homeschool and family-related news articles, as well as updates
on events, activities, co-ops, our directory, etc. Anything posted on our Yahoo! loop must
be restricted to CHAPLET members and not shared outside the group, so as to
respect the privacy of all of our families.
For access to the Yahoo! loop, click here
to inquire about becoming a CHAPLET member!
The CHAPLET Directory ~
A directory is printed each new
school year and distributed at the October social gathering. It will also be accessible to you through
our password protected Yahoo! Group website once you become a member. This directory will list members’ names,
addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, children’s names & year of
birth, and to which parish the member belongs. We value our members’ privacy and
confidentiality, so please know that your personal information will not be
shared outside of the CHAPLET homeschool group.
