Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith

will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. 

Colossians 2:7

ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Roots and Wings began as a small gathering of families who came together with a desire to see homeschool class offerings in the Lincoln-Way area. Our group is made up of homeschooling parents and their children who use their time and talents so that many homeschoolers may benefit.

Roots and Wings is a Christian homeschooling co-operative for children PreK-12th grade. We desire to bring glory to God by providing activities, fellowship, and learning opportunities to enhance a family’s homeschooling journey.

Roots and Wings meets on Thursday mornings from 9:00a-1:50p at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Frankfort, IL. Families can choose to participate in anywhere from 1 to 5 hours of class options throughout the morning. (You do NOT have to sign up for all 5 hours.)

 

Our schedule is as follows:

Morning Warm-Up     8:45 - 8:55                 

1st Hour      9:00 - 9:50

2nd Hour      9:55 - 10:45

3rd Hour     10:50 - 11:40

Halftime      11:45 - 12:00

4th Hour      12:05 - 12:55

5th Hour        1:00 - 1:50  

Various other activities and outings are hosted throughout the year. Because we are a cooperative, all parents play a part in making our days run smoothly. See the VOLUNTEER tab on our Registration page for more detail.

Roots and Wings CHC Board of Directors is comprised of 5 member parents taking part in co-op. We are also a volunteer board.  With that being said, please know, we don't promise complete oversight on the teachers curriculum.  The board expects final considerations to be made by the parents.  

Questions?? We've got the answers...

We'd love to help you out!  If you've already read and reviewed the FAQ page, the Volunteer Information and the Registration Information, and we still haven't answered your question, please see below to find the board member to email who could best answer your question.  We thank you in advance!
