General Questions

Q:

If Frisco HIS isn't a co-op, what is it?

A:

Frisco Home Is School is a support group. It is our mission to help local homeschooling moms through helping them connect with each other, offering support, and serving each other. 

We help our members connect with other homeschool moms by offering fun “moms only” events like coffee nights, holiday parties, movie night, and other great opportunities to hang out for just an hour or two without our children. 

Some of the ways we offer support to our members is through “Table Talks” which are informal informational get togethers regarding various homeschooling and parenting topics such as curriculum, preparing high school transcripts, homeschooling with special needs, homeschooling multiple ages, etc. 

We also hope to be able to serve each other when the need arises. We are here for moms and sometimes moms need a little extra help. We have been honored to bring meals to families when a new member is added, when there is an illness or surgery in a family, and many other circumstances where mom just needed one less thing on her plate for a few days! We have also served families in other ways and our members have formed a wonderful network of skills and abilities! 

Another big way we serve our members is through various activities for their children! Our members volunteer to host things like field trips, park meetups, holiday parties, Lego Club, Science Club, Chess Club, Drama Club, family picnics, game nights and hang outs for high schoolers, and many other fun chances to get together with old friends and make new ones!
