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 - September 26 through 30, 2016

Oh man, its happening! The colors of autumn are starting to pop – it’s as if the sweet changes are sending a special invitation to come out and embrace the majesty of this coming season. What’s more - there’s a yummy warmth out there! So, school on the green – why not?!

And as our weather changes, undesired sniffles, sneezes and worse descend upon us. If you keep your afflicted one at home, thank you for calling Kamisha, at 468-3305, to alert us to attendance issues.

REMEMBER: this is the final week to make changes to your child’s class schedule. Consider carefully, and then make changes as you see fit…there’s a great semester ahead for your family!

To an anonymous someone out there: a Rainbow Resource order was dropped off without a name attached. Math Express Speed Math was on the order. Claim this order in the Resource Room or see Mary Lou. Please and thank you!

Four words on this month’s progress reports: OUT OF SIGHT responses! Two hundred and forty families in this program and almost all of you have your reports in. Shazaam!! Big thanks, faithful ones!

High schoolers; if you’re a junior and would like to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (the PSAT), the only day it’s being offered this year is: Wednesday, October 19. Please pick up a testing prep booklet from the counselor's office at Deer Park High School; the application is an attachment to the booklet. The cost is $18. The National Merit Scholarship, considered the most prestigious in the country, is based entirely on the scores received from the PSAT. It’s worth the $18 investment. Do it!

MAP testing is ready to roll…the Fall Testing Window is on the Events Calendar from October 3rd to December 12th. Testing will be offered on Mondays at the Clayton lab from 12:30-3:30pm, and Fridays at the Deer Park lab from 9am-12 noon. Students 2nd grade and up may take the Math, Reading and Language Assessment. The assessments do not need to be taken all in one session, and it is certainly better to spread them out for your younger kids. High school students may also take Algebra I EOC practice, Algebra II EOC practice and Geometry EOC practice. Students are allowed to take each test only once per testing window. Please remember to call the office if your student is not going to be able to make it to a testing event.

There is currently a 15% off promotion going on right now through the end of September for early Yearbook orders. There is no rush to customize pages, add pictures, or do anything else with your Yearbook right now - just put in the order! That will save you $2.25! To get this great offer you will need to log-in and pay through TreeRing. Tell a friend! Questions? Contact Teresa Gooler @ teresa.gooler@dpsdmail.org
