Hello Military Supporters!!

I hope all of you have had a great July. We have been really busy and we could really use your help next week, We need Volunteers for Wednesday August 5th from 11:30 AM – 3:00 PM to assemble care packages!! Please Feel free to share with your friends and contacts!!

I have about 800 boxes that need help being assembled and shipped out. Your help will make all the difference and making sure our troop requests are fulfilled. We need all hands on deck to assemble these care packages for our troops deployed in Afghanistan and on a few Navy Ships as well.  If you can help us please let ME know. 

You can reach me at or call me at work (916) 441-6197 or on my cell (916) 583-8321. 

Again thank you so much for considering to helping us. If it was not for people just like you we would not have been named a Top Non Profit in 2015 by Great Non Profits and I really hope to see some of you next week on Wednesday. Please Let me know ASAP!!

* Each adult volunteer will receive a special “Support our Troops” Camo America Flag Magnet Ribbon

Love of Learning Center, Rocklin

Our mission is to provide homeschooling families a central location where they can engage in classical education classes while alleviating the stress of driving all over town for these enriching experiences.

Our goal is to help each student realize their genius, promote a passion for learning, and develop new skills.  Our devoted teachers have discovered their own love of learning and use their expertise to inspire these characteristics in the children they teach and nurture.

Love of Learning classes support and enrich what is taught at home.  We encourage communication and collaboration with our families and teachers.  We will not teach to state or federal tests, but we will do what homeschooling families have always done—give children a true education and a deep love of learning!

Kris Cordell Writing Workshop Aug. 18th for Parents and Teachers

Hello friends,

I just wanted to send out this quick reminder about the writing workshops that I have scheduled for parents and teachers, Sat., Aug. 15th.  Workshop will be held from 9:00-2:30 at the Brighter Child Bookstore on Greenback Ln (8125 Greenback Ln.).  These workshops will cover the same material this time.  The cost is $25 per person.

If you would like to attend one of these workshops, please send me an email to let me know.  I want to be sure that I have enough handouts for everyone.  And please feel free to call me if you have any questions (916-725-6473).  

On a completely different note, I want to make sure that everyone knows that this year for our high school students, we will be studying  two books by Shakespeare!!  We just couldn’t decide on one, so for several reasons, we have decided to study Hamlet this first semester; then we will study a comedy by Shakespeare the second semester.  To top it all off, we are going to plan a trip to Ashland’s Shakespearean Festival with our students in the spring of 2016!!  I don’t think you are going to want your high school students to miss out on this opportunity!  I’m not taking sign-ups for the class yet (I’ll send you an email in a couple of weeks to let you know when it’s time to get your children’s names on a class list), but I want you all to know about this awesome opportunity so that you can plan accordingly. J
