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 - Sept 29 through Oct 3, 2014

What’s red and yellow, and green all over? Right!! The emerging fall panorama! Scrumptious, isn’t it?
Parents please know that due to road construction on Main Street this upcoming month, the noon buses will be picking up, and dropping off students on 5th street. This street runs alongside the back parking lot of the Deer Park site. For safety reasons, we will walk in single file from the buses to the gym door. This busing adjustment will be from Oct 1 through Oct 31…think how automatic our straight rows and compliance will be by the end of the month. ATTEN-tion!
Speaking of buses—have all of you returned your bus forms to Connie? Thanks!
There will be a free class on our country’s Constitution—this is being held on two different evenings; Tues, Oct.7 and Thurs, Oct 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. The location is 108 E. Crawford, at Bug-N-Out (next to the Youth Center). Questions? Call 276-5478.
The afternoon Science Club starts THIS Tuesday, Sept. 29th, from 3:15 – 4 pm, in the Science Room at Deer Park. Parents are encouraged to stay with their students, and experience the Science Club with them (unless, of course, you need to stay with your younger children in the Mothers’ Room!) Enjoy!
Wednesday, Oct 15 is the date of the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) for 11th graders. This is excellent practice for the SAT- the same format and the same skill sets are evaluated in Reading, Math, and Writing. Differences? The PSAT is less expensive than the SAT, and is administered during the school day in high schools across the country. Students are given feedback on college readiness, and are sent literature and opportunities from multiple colleges. Most notable is that the PSAT results are used as the sole qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship program. This is the most prestigious scholarship in the country. Heady stuff. If any of our 11th graders are interested, please bring the testing fee of $18 to Connie at DP front desk. She will hand out study guides. The PSAT is being administered at DP High School. We will provide transportation to and from the high school, and will escort our students into the testing room.
Time for a party?? We have a good one for you; the Home Link Harvest Party is Thursday, Oct. 23rd; from 3:00-5:00pm. Come and join us for fun, food and prizes! We’ll pop the pumpkin, do the cookie walk, munch on popcorn, watch moms enjoy a latte, fish for treasure, and much more… BUT! In order to make this a great success we need you! It would be greatly appreciated if every family that plans on attending brings a bag of individually wrapped candy and puts it in the basket marked “Harvest Party,” located in the front office. Also, if you would like to help out at a booth (perhaps for only one hour?) or be a part of the cleanup crew, please sign up today! High-schoolers are welcome to sign up too!! (Please leave all costumes at home.) See you there!
Also coming up is information about the musical presentation of Peter Pan, performed by Spokane’s Christian Youth Theater, on Nov 12 and 13. Tickets are only $5. More next week, theater fans.

If you have reading time – there’s a story within the story on the flip side.
