    It would be great if there were FLVS picnics & get togethers for specific grades (ages) … My daughter needs to actually find a social environment to make friends locally with teens involved in a similar education alternative.
    Please let me know if this is available. If not I would be willing to host (co-host) events at local parks or library, movie theaters, bowling alley, etc. For my daughters age group (16-18) 11th & 12th graders….
    Please respond at your earliest convenience.

      If you want your daughter to find teens to be friends with find a good local church to go to. If you live in the Pasco area my church has a lot of homeschool teens. They have a website if you want to learn more @ dccalvary.com
