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.

Doesn’t our end-of-the-year FAIR sound good, about now? Think: early June, the air is warm, all those games, events, food, and general celebration that is done so beautifully…well, our master planner Gina is looking for some new ideas- perhaps you have some up your sleeve?? If you’d like to be a part of the planning committee or just have an idea you would like to share, please call Gina at 276-5511. Thanks!
Hats off to the Science Fair – such a success! Just ask anyone who visited the presentations of our 17 budding scientists; very impressive! Congratulations to all participants. There were three category winners: the Experimental winner was Jeremiah Waunch, with his spectacular entry in ‘Bubbleology’ (ask him about it!); the Rube Goldberg winner was Noah Wright, who created a domino cause and effect that resulted in the spinning of a CD that cranked out ba ba ba, ba Barbara Ann. Ahhh, Rube Goldberg would have liked the Beach Boys! And the Overall winner was Ryder Wolfe for his presentation, ‘Is Astrology Boring?’ Um, not at all! Big thanks to judges Mike Jennings, Christine Colestock, Autumn Bunce, Christine Waunch, and Robyn Hodgson. And to our Tuesday afternoon Science Club? You really started something!
