Welcome to the South Dakota Home School Association web page.

Dear SDHSA Members:

Welcome to the 2001-2002 school year. As homeschoolers, it never ends, but we use this time-frame to focus in on various functions. My name is Teresa Butterfield and I will be the editor for this year. If you are interested in being the newsletter editor for next year and want to train with me this year, give me a call.

SDHSA stands for South Dakota Home School Association. You become a member by paying $20.00 annual fees. This allows you to receive newsletters, phone messages, graduation participation and discount opportunities for the spring convention. We are trying a new format this year with two letters during the year going out through e-mail. Please send Wanda Schoeneman your e-mail address if you wish this letter to come to you via email. If you prefer regular mail, we need to know that also. Two regular mailings will come out approximately November 1 and April (or May, as the board sets up). If you want articles printed, advertisement spots, and such please get them to me by October 15, 2001. Please let me know when you set up events, dates, times, places, etc. and I will add them to a calendar-style format with the November letter. I listed items alphabetically as many start dates were not yet determined. Hope you enjoy the ‘start’ of this school year. God bless! Teresa Butterfield
