1. Freedom School of the Pacific Northwest
“Greetings Friends and Families,…

We have been busy processing the mountains of paperwork that need our attention. Our lawyer is also helping us with the process of achieving non-profit status. We are checking off items as they are completed. At this point The Freedom School is moving forward to operate as a home-school co-op.

What does this mean for our children and families?

This fall The Freedom School will home-school children of interested families. This will be on a part-time basis, with tuition set according to the number of hours of participation. There will be classes in basic academics offered, the 4 Rs, as well as student driven studies. There is no list of required school supplies children and families should buy what they want or think they will need, as in keeping with the model of education we are employing. We have a tentative start date of September 15 at The Freedom School site.

All families interested in participating in our program are invited to attend an
Assembly Meeting
Monday, August 31
at 6 PM
at The Freedom School
10905 138th Ave SE in Rainier.
Staff will be giving parents a proposal regarding hours of operation, tuition, fees and class offerings, and will be asking for input. Students have an important role in the creation of the school and are encouraged to attend and participate as well!

We also will be starting Adult Education classes in September! There is a pilot class running at this time involving Sacred Geometry. This and other offerings will be communicated to the community in the near future.

If you have any questions, please call Deanna Waldo at 400-2492.

Also, if you know of anyone who may be interested in our school, feel free to forward this email to them.”

  1. Yes, Yelm is known as a hotspot in the county for citizens calling the city on their lack of integrity in handling public affairs!
