Ambleside evenings

Ambleside Evenings are a way for parents to support one another in caring for their children, build relationships together through food and fellowship, and become a stronger school community as we learn about how to bring the transformative power of Charlotte Mason’s method into our homes.  

Each Evening begins with a potluck supper at 6 pm.

Friday, February 23rd:  Discipline vs. Punishment

Friday, April 27th: Authority vs. Freedom

Shakespeare Festival

June 1st & June 8th

"To become intimate with Shakespeare in this way is a great enrichment of mind and instruction of conscience. Then, by degrees, as we go on reading this world-teacher, lines of insight and beauty take possession of us, and unconsciously mould our judgments of men and things and of the great issues of life." 

- Charlotte Mason
