SAIL Activities and Events

Activities and events are what SAIL is all about! Our membership is our community. Members work together to create field trips, special interest clubs, and other educational or entertaining activities. Here is a sampling of some of the activites SAIL members currently enjoy.

Park Days
Meet other SAIL Members for playtime at a different park every week. It's a great way to get to know other members and their kids. It's also ideal for burning off some of that extra energy before returning to other homeschool activities. Our Monthly Gathering (on the 2nd Tuesday of each month) is open to homeschooling visitors who would like to join or learn more about SAIL.

Field Trips
All SAIL field trips are member-organized. Field trips that we have enjoyed in the past include trips to zoos and animal care centers, amusement parks, local businesses and factories, Collin County Adventure Camp, museums, and more.

Astronomy Club
Join with other stargazers to learn more about the sky, stars and planets. Activities include presentations by members, experiments and using telescopes to find objects in the sky. Our Astronomy Club is for SAIL members ages 10 and up.

Needlework Group
Boys and girls of all ages are welcome to our monthly Needlework Group. Bring any type of needlework craft including (but not limited to) knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, hand sewing, latch hook, and more. Everyone is working on their own projects so bring something along to work on while you talk and hang out with others.

Robotics and Engineering Team
SAIL teens form a Robotics and Engineering team and participate in the CoCo BEST Robotics competition in the fall. Parents act as mentors to teach skills such as carpentry, metal work, and electronics. Past teams have performed very well at local and regional competitions. Projects include robot design, fabrication, programming and manipulation as well as marketing, presentations, public relations, spirit, teambuilding, and outreach programs.

Playdates and Hangouts
Playdates and hangouts are usually geared towards a particular age group (such as early elementary or teens) or special interest (such as Legos or Pokemon). Some are scheduled on a monthly basis; others are scheduled periodically.

Book Clubs
Book clubs give members a chance to expand their reading with books they might not normally read and to discuss their impressions with others who have also read them. Book clubs are organized by age.

Movies
SAIL kids meet regularly at members' homes to watch both recent and classic movies. Movie events are organized by age.

Parent Activities
We think it is very important for SAIL parents to have some activities that are all their own. Some parents-only activities include our weekly Mom's Night Out, monthly Mom's Book Club, quarterly Curriculum Night, and occasional Dad's Night Out and Parents' Night Out.

Cultural Events
Cultural events are planned for all ages and include museum visits, plays, puppet shows, musical performances, presentations on world cultures and more.

Family Gatherings
Families gather regularly for potlucks, holiday events and other special occasions.

Parties
SAIL members love a good party! Past parties have included Not-Back-to-School, holiday, and seasonal parties.

Co-op
The SAIL Co-op involves homeschooling families working together to create a day of enrichment classes for their kids. All participants are actively involved in making Co-op a success by serving as teachers and class helpers. Click here for more information about the SAIL Co-op.
