Lunch Options

Our lunch break is between the second and third periods. Please pack and bring lunch, or you may preorder a hot meal from our lunch team before class day.

Parent Fellowship

Fellowship is critical to our co-op because it allows us to build relationships with other families and provide love and support no matter the stage in life you are in your homeschool journey—new friendships that become like family whether you teach together or share an off period.

Laura Walmsley Portrait
Laura Walmsley was born in Texas, but has been a California girl since she was a toddler. She met her husband, Robert, who was born and raised in San Diego in 2002. They have been married for 17 years and have 2 children together. Their son Gabriel is a 6th grader and daughter Marissa is a 4th grader.

Laura and Robert attend Bonita Valley Community Church regularly with their family. BVCC has been Laura's home church since she was 3 years old! Through the years she has participated as a group leader with MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), Moms Connected, has worked in childcare for the MOPS moms, and every summer she co-leads "The Imagination Station" at VBS (Vacation Bible School). Laura currently leads a small group within Women's Bible Study.

2021-2022 was the Walmsley family's first year at HCS and their first year homeschooling! The Lord began stirring Laura's heart very strongly when public school shut down for her children in 2020. Immediately, God began to open doors that were drawing Laura towards the homeschool community, Even though it was not something she ever expected to be doing, she was obedient to the Lord's call and went "all in"! God orchestrated the transition so beautifully by reconnecting her with a high school friend who introduced her to HCS. She found a beautiful, welcoming, and supportive community at Bonita Class Day. It was the glue she needed to keep her faithful on this new journey. Laura is teaching "Hands on Science" this year and she is very excited to see how the Lord will use her in co-leading Bonita Class Day in the Fall!

Laura loves reading, art, gardening, all things wellness, anything vintage and movie nights with her family.
