Mark your calendars for October 13, 2017
and join us for another FUN and INFORMATIVE day
at the Capitol!
Capitol Day is a great field trip for all homeschool families AND an important
way to impact your legislators’ support for home educating freedom! It is also a
wonderful way to fulfill some of the history requirements for your school year!
Join us for another exciting line-up…
State Representative Ron Hood will be addressing our families in the morning and will be available to answer questions. You don’t want to miss this homeschool dad who faithfully serves in the Ohio legislature.
State Board of Education member, Sarah Fowler, will join us for the day and speak in the afternoon. Sarah brings
a fresh perspective on serving on the State board as a homeschool graduate. She is an inspirational speaker and a wonderful role model for students of all ages!
Melanie Elsey, CHEO legislative liaison, will also update families on legislative issues
within the state and be available all day to answer any questions.
If you haven’t met Melanie, make sure to stop by the CHEO table and introduce yourself. She is always
happy to meet the families she serves on behalf of CHEO.
Kenneth Hammondtree, from Living History Productions, will be joining us in the
afternoon as early Ohio pioneer, Johnny Appleseed!!
After college, Mr. Hammondtree began teaching American and Ohio History. He was surprised to learn that many of his students did not share his excitement about our past. Realizing the students had a difficult time relating to our past; Ken came up with an unusual plan. He would occasionally teach the class in first person, impersonating an historical figure. His first performance was as Johnny Appleseed with many more characters to come over the years. We are thrilled to have Ken join us and introduce students to John Chapman, more commonly known as, Johnny Appleseed.
The day will also include informative tours of the Statehouse, interaction with
|state legislators or their staff, an exciting new Statehouse Scavenger hunt,
door prizes and much much more!
Come spend a day at the Statehouse with CHEO!
