The Trinity School’s Women’s Circle has officially been formed. We began meeting this week to discuss Susan Schaeffer Macaulay’s book, For the Children’s Sake. It is a short and simple read and still Macaulay tours us through the main tenants of a Charlotte Mason education. The principles are relevant for teachers, home educators and anyone who spends their days or nights with children.
But Women’s Circle is not just a book club and it isn’t only for those involved with The Trinity School. We are a group of women committed to learning more about our world, ourselves and our God and any woman in the community is welcome to be part. We have diverse interests and concerns and we hope to use Women’s Circle for a chance to connect, share and be challenged by new ideas. We will be meeting intermittently throughout the coming school year for discussion and activities on topics including parenting, marriage, faith, culture, art, cooking and crafting.
We would love to have you be part of our group. Please use our contact form to get in touch with us and let us know you are interested in updates on our Women’s Circle and we will let you know about our next gathering.
At The Trinity School we are all about making connections.
As lay the foundation of our program it is a joy and a gift to learn from experts who have gone before us. We are grateful to have so many excellent Charlotte Mason resources in Texas.
This week myself, Erin Graybill and Gloria Bishop took an all to quick but incredibly inspirational trip to Fredericksburg to visit two phenomenal schools. We visited with Rebekah Heirholzer, an expert in Charlotte Mason Philosophy, and observed her charming cottage style kindergarten. We also visited the K-12 program at Ambleside Fredericksburg and were fortunate enough to attend their last chapel service of the year. The experience left us even more passionate about establishing a traditional Christian school using this whole child philosophy here in Harlingen.
We will likely be making visits to other Charlotte Mason Schools during the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested in coming along please let us know we would love to have you.
