HSLDA Group Membership


Last year, CHESCA started a Membership Discount Group. If you are a CHESCA member family and desire to use our Membership Discount Group number, the number is 299674 .


We need to keep 15 families consistently who either are applying or already HSLDA members to keep our discount group intact. If you want CHESCA to become, or remain, your Discount Group could you please take a minute and write your HSLDA membership number on the Field Trip Registration Form with this newsletter? We can then, automatically update your family and include you in our Discount Group with HSLDA. We currently have 51 families that belong to our discount group. When you renew your membership with HSLDA, please use the above number. Thanks.

CHEO/CHESCA are 20 years old this year!


 Did you know that CHESCA was originally CHEO? In March 1983, CHEO had it’s first meeting in a McDonalds restaurant in Canton. In 1987, the Stark County support group briefly became CHEO of Stark County. In 1988, CHEO left Stark County to move it’s offices in Kent and thus, CHESCA was born. However, our roots are CHEO. CHESCA bears the distinction of being originally CHEO. God has blessed the homeschoolers in both organizations, though both CHEO and CHESCA have seen their share of trials. Still, both organizations remain strong and continue to provide support to homeschoolers in Ohio and Stark County. 20 Years of Home Schooling Support… HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHESCA and CHEO!


THANK YOU, Don & Marcia Mantel and Mike & Beth Wolsey
