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 - February 21 through 24, 2017

Helloo all my Valentines…yes, it’s well past Feb 14, and yes, in my book you’re still dear hearts, each and every one! We thank you for the special relationships experienced in this program because of your hearts, willingly engaged with ours. The relationships with you are beyond fruitful and kind and uplifting and ALWAYS valued. Your hearts are deeply appreciated.

Did any of you turn in a Rainbow Resource order form last week with Aesop’s Fables, and Dinosaurs, and several Key to Algebra books requested? So guess what Melissa is requesting? Right; thy name!

Next week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the DP Parents’ Room, H.O.P.E. representative Sara Griffin will again spearhead roundtable discussions of home schooling topics common to all. This time, she’s serving up topics such as: Family Profiles – how every home is different. And, if you’re New to Homeschooling – the successful transition strategies whether you come from other programs, from home only, or from traditional classrooms. There are also topics on Organizing your Day: teaching strategies; multiple ages/grades; schooling with littles underfoot; special needs; atypical schedules (i.e.: dad works swing shift, mom works part time, etc.); shared teaching (spouse, grandparents, etc.). These topics are the HOWS of making home schooling work - perhaps you have some additional ‘hows’ to share…good, we’ll be expecting you! And for those of you who enjoyed the dialogue several weeks ago, you must return, and yes, bring that friend along!

Parent Night- featuring Internet Safety (cancelled because of last week’s snow day) has been re-scheduled for Thursday, March 9th at 6 pm. This is a combined effort of many of our parents and Specialists to bring helpful information your way. Please plan on coming on this revised night and time. Thank you!

Sophomores, juniors and their parents: Eastern Washington University is having a Running Start Information Night, on Wednesday, March 15, at 6:30 pm. This is for academically motivated and qualified students (YOU!) to glean information about attending their classes while completing high school graduation requirements. You’ll meet in Patterson Hall, Room 126, on the EWU Campus in Cheney. Glad that you’re going to check it out!

Game Night is on March 17th at 6 pm, at the Deer Park Middle School. It’s a family fun night – come! All students (6th grade and up) and parents are welcome to sign up/play on a basketball team. Practice dates are March 14th and 15th. Basketball practice is at 6 pm and volleyball practice will be held at 7 pm. If you wish to play you must attend at least one of the practices and sign up in the front office. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be available for purchase. Also, you won’t want to miss our own dance teams as they perform a variety of numbers throughout the evening, including their most famous light show! Join us!

A beloved presence in the Deer Park community passed away last Friday. Many of you knew Bonnie Remington; she was a charismatic, larger-than-life personality in the Elementary schools – where she was a principal for just under 20 years in this community. Everyone, adults and students of all ages has Bonnie stories and memories and feels an extraordinary gratitude to have lived life alongside her. She must have had the strongest heart possible, because nothing strengthens the heart like reaching down, and lifting others up. Whether you knew Bonnie personally or not, lean on her example, won’t you? Just think of the encouragement we’ll be to one another. And best of all, her remarkable spirit will continue to bless us.
