We are a Parent Partnership Program where parents of home schooled children and teachers from the Deer Park School District work together to define the educational goals and materials our parents and students use at home. The first session of Home Link started in September 2000 with 38 students. Today, we have over 500 students. We also provide core and supplemental classes at our Deer Park and Clayton campuses.

MEMO - November 13 through 17, 2017

So. I was enjoying watching a very young Irish Dance class practicing some high-kicking steps in front of a row of mirrors. As the dancers moved closer towards the mirrors, I noticed one little girl watching herself closely. She stopped dancing with the others, and walked right up to the mirror. I thought that she was admiring her (very) cute face; she smiled, then smiled even bigger, tossing her head back a bit. Then, she couldn’t help it, her fingers pulled back her upper lip so that she could REALLY get a view of the vacant area where those two baby teeth had been. Pretty soon everybody was showing off holes made from missing teeth –the bragging rights are crazy in that age group!

To our dear ones, with little ones, who frequent the Family room - what do you think - can we perhaps keep things quieter and more manageable? When we have our K-2, and 3-5 aged classes at Deer Park or at Clayton… oh my, the Family rooms become a bit chaotic. I bet that the atmosphere can be more sedate. Thanks for trying, and thanks for being respectful of others.

To our older students: its district policy that students may not be outside, in parked cars during the lunch break, or in between classes. Though appealing, this is a reminder: can’t do such.

Book It! To all K-6th graders - it's time to start reading your hearts out to earn that personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. Pick up your vouchers in the Deer Park Library – from October through March.

Don’t forget - there will be no Gymnastics Club THIS Wednesday, Nov 15th. Gymnastics Club will meet next on Nov 29th, at 3:30 pm.

This is the last call-out to students and Moms: keep eyes peeled for a dark grey jacket, fleece-lined, with a gold zipper. The hoodie strings have gold aglets on their tips. It’s a teen-aged boy’s coat, and it went missing last month after Gymnastic Club. Thanks everybody!

Parents, if you have a junior or senior who would like to start attending the Skills Center, second semester – contact your Consultant now, please.

The Holidays are coming with lots of shopping and cooking. Some parents are reminding that Home Link can greatly benefit from shopping trips. Yokes has a program that involves scanning a card (E-Scripts) at the check-out which gives Home Link a bit of a kickback; want to sign up? Box Tops is another way that Home Link receives some dividends; clip and save those box tops, then drop them into a box here at Home Link. Thanks for helping! Stop by Mary Lou’s office for more details.

A Christmas Craft Show and Auction will be held on Wednesday, Dec 6, in the District Training room, in the Deer Park site. The auction portion of the craft show is for Michelle Stallings and her girls. You might remember that Michelle’s husband died earlier this fall - the auction this is an opportunity to support the Stallings during the holidays. If you have any questions on auction items, please call Kathy Starr, at 509-550-7554. The sign-up sheet for Crafts is now ready – put your name on it! Please start bringing in auction items after Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving week is COMING (!), at long last! We’ll have classes next week on Monday and Tuesday, like always. Now remember, on Wednesday, we have morning classes only. And special note: there will be NO noontime buses on Wednesday. So- time for a pop quiz: If you drop your children off at, say, Clayton on Wednesday morning…where do you pick them up? Right! Clayton! And what time? Noon! Sharp! Thanks, Gobblers!
