PEACH Member Benefits
PEACH Member Benefits:
PEACH publishes a monthly e-newsletter. The PEACH Newsletter and PEACH Flash keep our members up-to-date with field trips, activities, opportunities for service and homeschooling in the news, as well as accepting articles and ads from our members.
PEACH Flashes are sent out via email to provide information, recommendations, and items of interest to our PEACH Members. These are sent out as needed during the school year from August through May.
PEACH is currently working with Club Express to develop this function. In the near future, we hope to provide member names, addresses and phone numbers, as well as ages of children, curriculum in use, and family interests and hobbies. This will be for members only. You may currently go to your member profile and edit what information is shared with other members via the Member Directory.
PEACH teens can participate in a bi-monthly Book Club. Teens can also participate in bi-weekly Bible Study, and in our Drama Club. We also offer several monthly activities for teens to choose from like, these events are available to members only through our members group! Don't see an event you'd like to see? Have a great idea?
