Homelink Web Logo
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 - October 24 through 28, 2016

What a joy to see so many of you last week at the Harvest Party; lovely turnout despite the rain! And if YOU contributed an hour to a booth, or set-up, or face-painting, or balloon art, or serving drinks, or corralling kids—that spirit of volunteering is what makes this program click. A mighty thanks from us to your gift of time. And Gina? We’re nothing without you, and the gracious way you orchestrate all things. And Gus? Your clean-up of our ever-lovin mess, is second to none. Just like you.

Progress Reports in and checked off your to-do lists?? Thank you!

THIS Thursday, Oct 27, from 1-4 pm. Deer Park is the site for you to hear the principles that the Institute for the Excellence in Writing teaches, under the guidance of Kayla Stewart, one of our program Moms. She believes that the success of writing in her homeschooling has been directly related to the way this program approaches writing. Further, she has worked for IEW as an exhibitor at conventions and has been a certified teacher for their program. Please come and join the discussion and the learning, and make writing a successful piece of your homeschooling this year! Snacks provided, as is child care for those toilet trained. Are you coming? I knew it! Let Connie know. See you there!

Important reminder to you busy Moms: At the end of the school day, may we ask for promptness in the picking up of your students? Many families have students at both program sites, and we know that you can’t be two places at once (miracle workers though you be!). However, however, however – 3:45 pm; even 4 pm and beyond? Yikes! Thank you for changing that around.

Moms, Specialists, and students - harken! Please remember to log off of any computer you're using. That's not just logging off of our website, but logging completely off the computer, as well. Thanks! School computers are available for student and parent use during school hours only.

Student I.D. cards are in! Please see Connie at the front desk to get yours.

If any high school student is in need of community service hours, please contact Kathy Starr – she’d appreciate help with December’s Craft Fair/Benefit.

Parents of seniors who intend to attend college next year: FAFSA (Federal Application for Financial Student Aid) is now open. Have available your tax returns from 2015 – process takes about 30 mins to complete.

Many of you have asked about our class schedule during the week of Thanksgiving, Nov 21 through 23. That week’s classes on Monday and Tuesday are like every other week; no changes. Wednesday’s classes are in the morning, until noon; ONLY. Then, students are released. There is NO bus service that Wednesday.

When you have a moment: Please check Lost AND Found! Oh, the treasures!

Despite the rains and winds, the utter loveliness of this season remains. As John Donne said long ago,

No spring nor summer's beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.

Enjoy each day's splendor, my friends.
