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.

Speakin o’ food, perhaps this week yer be choosin to eat the Irish stew, or Rueben sandwich, or the Shepherd’s pie, or the Irish Soda bread that be so good for yer gullet, before dem hot dogs?? Whatever, just ye be enjoyin all thins Irish, and fer sure – be wearin yer green colors. OR…ye best be watching out fer a pinch or two, lass! Lastly, here be quick statements of Irish wisdom: You'll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind. What I'm afraid to hear I had better say first myself. It's often that a man's mouth broke his nose. No need to fear the ill wind when your haystacks are tied down. For every mile of road there are two miles of ditches. The longest road out is the shortest road home. There's no use boiling your cabbage twice. Uncertain what a few mean? Be askin me!
