3.     Remember, the group has elected leadership to act as contact persons with the state and schools for Cabot Area Home Educators homeschoolers.

4.     Since everyone attending group functions are representing the group, participants must be members that have agreed and signed the “guidelines for conduct and behavior” as well as, the “Statement of Faith.”

i.     Guests are invited and will be allowed to participate in 2 functions and then will be required to join Cabot Area Home Educators.


CAHE encourages members to plan activities for all to enjoy. When planning an activity, please keep in mind the following guidelines

Let us keep in mind the reputation we want to establish in public. We want to retain a good name for ourselves as homeschoolers, as well as for our group. We can accomplish that together by following these guidelines.


2 Cor. 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

Disclaimer: Leadership reserves the right to deny or terminate membership at any time for any reason.
