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 - Nov. 17 through 21, 2014

DREADED kick-off to this week’s Memo, with reminder that PROGRESS REPORTS are due T.H.I.S. Thursday, me darlins.
Oh, you’re still reading?? Good! The HOPE meeting for this month is this very Tuesday, Nov. 18th @ 2:00 pm. in the DP library…they’re counting on seeing you there!
Next Tuesday, Nov. 25th, between the hours of 4:30 and 7 pm (Board Room, DP location) we will be packaging up winter clothing for children in this area. Thanks to a grant provided through Foresters, and through Ginny Beadle’s ingenuity, we will be able to donate this clothing to community children. That’s YOU, you know! During the week of Dec. 1, the packages will be available to pick up at the DP Ambulance Center, which is located between Armin and Crawford. If you have a couple free moments to help package, do come—it certainly presents a great opportunity to engage your children in ways that they, too, can help the community prepare for the winter. Big THANK YOU, Foresters!!!

All parents of eighth graders should receive some information about College Bound Scholarships in their mailboxes this week. Man, what an opportunity this presents. College tuition, paid for. Yes this financial aid is based upon income, and family size… BUT at this eighth grade juncture, just sign up. So much could happen in the next four years to any one of us financially- however IF you elect not to sign your son or daughter up by June 30th of this eighth grade year, your student is totally ineligible. Like Nike- just do it.
Several of our students have leading parts in a Christmas Irish dancing extravaganza, called “Cnothair” - a Celtic Nutcracker. This is through the Kelly Irish Dancers, with performances at the Valley Prairie Grange. Seating is limited, so buy those tickets (TheKellyDancers.com) if you’re able to attend either Dec. 19, or 20th. Check the posters for more information.
All students (K through 5) in afternoon classes at Deer Park, on Tuesdays and Thursdays are to assemble in the Mothers Room, for best connects with their rides home. Can you help your students remember, Moms?? Kids become too scattered, and unsafe, otherwise. Thanks for the help!
Relatedly, if you pick your son/daughter up early, and there are unattended classes in your wake – would you alert the front desk, so that we don’t worry? Knew that you would! Thanks!
Frost on pumpkins, bags of leaves, honking geese above, red noses, the burnished-brown of the world’s color, earlier-than-ever sunsets – it’s that time of year. In keeping with that, I was defining the word ‘transition’ to my grandsons last week. We were in the car; and they were, frankly, a captive audience. I was a nut and mentioned what root words such as ‘trans’ mean, other words with ‘trans’ in them, and then we landed on seasonal changes (transitions!) such as frost on pumpkins. Yes, my backseat babies learned so much. At supper, one of the boys told his mom that I had explained that transition is ‘what makes Grandma’s car run’. Any of YOUR kids want dibs to ride in my backseat???? Oh, I’ve still got it!
