The following message was sent from the Chapel Hill Homeschoolers board to their member email list.  DFS is sharing this announcement here because it directly pertains to our programming.  Take a look! (All further text is from CHH)

Hello all!

After spending months searching, we are so thrilled to share with you that Charlotte Dungan will be taking over as our new Friday Enrichment Coordinator. Charlotte has been a homeschooling parent and part of Chapel Hill Homeschoolers since 2008. She is a certified teacher in the state of Massachusetts and holds a lapsed certificate in the State of Ohio for preschool education. She recently earned an Ed.M. in Learning and Teaching from Harvard University. And many of you know Charlotte as the Founder and Executive Director of Dimensions Family School in Durham.

We are thrilled that she has agreed to serve in this role and while we recognize that some might have concerns about a conflict of interest since she runs Dimensions, Charlotte’s primary mission has always been to serve the homeschool community. She taught at FE for several years and served on the CHH board until moving to Massachusetts to begin her degree program. Her goals are to create resources where they are needed, never to compete with already existing resources, which is why the Dimensions campuses are located far from CHH programming.

By working together for Friday Enrichment, CHH gains access to the DFS class registration software. This will streamline registration for parents and teachers alike, and finally allow us to accept credit card payments! CHH is using DFS as a contractor to run a high quality Friday Enrichment program. There will be no fees charged from Dimensions Family School to CHH members; likewise, Friday Enrichment participants are not automatically DFS members. We are simply using their services to provide the high quality Friday Enrichment programming that you’ve come to expect from CHH.

I hope that you will join us all in welcoming Charlotte in her new role! She will be sending out a call for courses shortly.

Finally, a warm thank you to Mary Margaret who tirelessly served our community as Friday Enrichment Coordinator for years! We are all thankful for everything that she gave to allow this wonderful community enriching program to continue.
Warmly,
Your Board Members
Amy Scurria (Co-Leader)
