- HSinNM (Christian Homeschooling in NM) - This is a member driven list for Christian homeschooling families in New Mexico. You get out of it what you put into it.
Topics don’t have to all be on schooling. You can sell or trade your used books but don’t even try to set up a MLM party. We do ask that you avoid hot topic or “gray area” issues.
Moderation is primarily for spam and solicitation although theological hot topics may be directed off board. Moderators are busy homeschool parents just like you too. We are not a business or a group. Don’t expect newsletters or all-knowing information.
Surrounding areas and prospective homeschoolers are welcome also.

- LA-Homeschool (LA Homeschool) - This e-mail list is for the discussion of topics related to homeschooling in and around Los Alamos County, New Mexico. This area includes but is not limited to Los Alamos, White Rock, Jemez, Espanola, Ojo Caliente, Pojoaque, La Cueva, El Rito, Abiquiu and any of the other surrounding areas. The scope of this group includes anything that might be pertinent to homeschooling or children in the Los Alamos area. Including chat about what someone might be up to or even a nice curriculum that they found… Including activities available in the area. What are your kids enjoying? What activity have you run across lately? Are you wondering about some event or curriculum? Are you trying to put together a unit study and looking for ideas or books? If you need a little adult interaction – come chat here. Almost anything goes but lets try to avoid politics and religion unless it has to do directly with homeschooling or you are suggesting a particular event, group, curriculum, ect. . I would love for this to be a place where we build each other up and encourage the homeschooling community. Let’s create a “family” here. You do not need to be a homeschooler to join.

The purpose of our association is to provide support, encouragement, and social situations which we would be unable to provide as individuals such as field day events, special field trips, ect.
