Extra-Curricular Activities

The Bitterroot Valley offers many extra-curricular activities enjoyed by homeschool students and their families. MATCHE will update this page regularly to list descriptions and provide contact information for activities that are created for or specifically offered to homeschoolers. Some of these activities may be open to all students, not just homeschool students. As with any activity, parents should use their own discretion in deciding what activities and environments are appropriate for their children.

MATCHE Member Park Days

MATCHE member families are invited to join a group that meets periodically at parks throughout the Bitterroot Valley. These informal gatherings are an opportunity to build friendships among Christian homeschool students and moms, for mutual encouragement and fun. This group is open exclusively to MATCHE members. For more information, please contact matcheonline@gmail.com and put "Park Day" in the subject line.

Bitterroot Homeschool Choir

The Bitterroot Homeschool Choir meets once a week and has two performances a year, in December and May. There are no age restrictions, but we ask that students be old enough to sit through a two hour rehearsal and have at least a basic reading ability. For more information please contact Mrs Heidi Alteneder at mountainmelodiesmusicstudio@gmail.com.
