LCHEA only EVENTS
Throughout the school year, LCHEA sponsors a number
a special events for LCHEA members only.
Below are a few of our annual events.
Father Daughter Dance
This elegant affair with an ambiance similar to that of a prom allows fathers and their daughters to enjoy a fun formal event together.
Easter Egg Hunt
This annual event is packed with family fun. Each year we meet somewhere different to picnic together and hunt for eggs.
Used Curriculum Sale
Each year in late spring or early summer, LCHEA holds a sale during which members may sell curriculum and other education-related materials. Only LCHEA members may sell, but shopping is open to the public.
This formal event is exclusively for our juniors and seniors.
Our annual Valentine's Day party is a family ice skating event, which includes Valentine's box decorating competition, Valentine's exchange, and sweets & treats share.
This is a family centered event held in a different location annually.
LCHEA’s science event is open to LCHEA students of all ages. Projects may be completed by individuals or by groups of students. Participants display materials which describe their projects. Outside guests may be invited to speak to the group or provide science activities for the families.
A senior graduation is available to those who desire the experience of participating in a recognition ceremony with homeschooled friends. A photographer and videographer usually are present to record the event. Planning meetings are held throughout the school year but it is important to join early in June prior to senior year because senior yearbook photos are scheduled before the start of the school year. Seniors and participating families are actively involved in this process. Additional information may be found in the LCHEA Guidelines document.
LCHEA’s Spelling Bee is an annual event that allows our 5th-8th graders an opportunity to show off their spelling skills and for one student to have the opportunity to compete with 49 other Low Country students at CSU during the annual SpellBound! competition hosted by the Post and Courier.
PSAT testing is offered to LCHEA students 8th grade and above one day each fall. Because space is limited, priority is given to 8th and 11th grade students and to those who register early. Stanford Achievement Testing for 3rd through 12th grade students is conducted over two days in the spring.
LCHEA partners with other area support groups to hold a National Geographic Society Geographic Bee. Competition includes 4th through 8th grade students. The top 100 students within the state compete at the state level; the winner is invited to participate in the national competition.
Our full-color, hardcover yearbook is produced almost entirely by LCHEA high school students overseen by an adult coordinator. The student staff members photograph activities, design and build yearbook pages, and sell advertising. High school credit may be given for yearbook staff participation. Seniors are given special recognition in the yearbook, but must be actively involved in the process beginning early in the summer, the start of the LCHEA membership year. Student portraits of students in K-4 though 11th grade, similar to those taken of students in traditional schools, are taken by a professional photographer in the fall.
