Texas Home School Community Calendar
The THSC Event Calendar is a free service to home schoolers in Texas. We hope you like it. It is designed to help home schooling families, friends, and support groups take advantage of educational opportunities of interest to you.
For event sponsors: Your event venue must be in Texas and have a specific appeal to home schoolers. All submissions are moderated by THSC. If you don't see your event posted three business days after submission, please contact the Moderator at email@example.com. Thank you for your submissions and interest in supporting Texas home schoolers.

Note: Please do not list events that run for extended periods. Events running for more than 3 – 5 days (depending on event), will be edited or will not be published. If you would like to promote a long-running event, such as a class or a camp, please list the opening and closing dates for registration or enrollment separately. The recommendation for actual class dates is that they should be listed in the event description, not in the date field.
TCI: ForesTREE Experience
June 19 - June 20
This two-day mini session from June 19-20, 2019, will start at the Jones State Forest in Conroe and will be led by the Texas A&M forest service. Participants will explore methods for using trees and forests to educate students of all grade levels and in nearly any subject area. The second day will be spent in the Huntsville area touring a working forest and a manufacturing facility to examine the role that forests play in our economy and environment. Sessions are open to all classroom teachers, non-formal educators and other adults interested in teaching youth about forestry and conservation education.
Teacher Conservation Institute (TCI) is a summer professional development camp for teachers and other educators interested in learning about Texas forests and the benefits they provide. At each session, participants will experience a combination of hands-on activities, classroom-style sessions and field trips led by natural resource professionals.
Sessions in classroom planning are led by professional educators and Project Learning Tree facilitators. Project Learning Tree is the curriculum that is provided to all workshop attendees. We want to make sure that attendees are equipped with fun, engaging activities that align with state standards and that inspire their students to think critically and creatively about complex environmental issues. It helps teachers translate their TCI experience into something they can use in the classroom.
