Peninsula Family Schools
PFS is an organization of parents primarily in Hampton, Newport News, Yorktown, and Poquoson who are exercising their right to teach their children at home.  We have a library of materials concerning homeschooling available for checkout and lots of encouragement as you work with your children. If you have questions or comments concerning this information, please e-mail Lourdes Knapp at
Current information as of August 2002
The PFS meetings are held at Bethel Temple Assembly of God Church in Hampton on Todd's Lane at 7:00 PM every other month from September to May.  There is a used book sale before every meeting and child care provided for a love offering so both parents can attend.  They have kindergarten and 8th grade graduation ceremonies each year.
You can contact coordinator Lourdes Knapp - 886-2077 for more information.
