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 - January 17 through 20, 2017

It’s a perfect time to remind you that when worrisome weather hits, it's important to check local news channels for updates on Deer Park School District closures. In the case of 2 hour delays, Home Link's school day will begin with the 3rd hour (11 o'clock) class, and proceed as usual through the remainder of the day. MAKE WISE DRIVING DECISIONS, ESPECIALLY THIS WEEK, AND STAY SAFE DEAR ONES.

Any lingering needs connected to class registration for the second semester? If you have questions - the Schedulers have answers!

Forester's Care Kits are being assembled THIS Tuesday. Thanks to an effort through Ginny Beadle, Home Link has received a grant to provide winter clothing for children in our area. Would you consider joining us and offering help in packaging the clothing? Good! Much appreciated! That's January 17 at 4 pm in the Boardroom.

There’s an EIW (Excellence in Writing) check-in with Kayla Stewart on Wednesday, Jan 18, at 2 o’clock. You got questions? She got answers!

EOC retakes in Algebra, Geometry, and Biology are THIS Friday, Jan 20, and NEXT Friday, the 27th. Each day’s testing begins at 9 am, at the DP site. YES, it’s worth it; be there!

Tickets are $5, and are available through January 27, in the Deer Park library. Pretty great deal and good incentive during these winter months!

Silverwood's ‘Reading is the Ticket!’ for grades K-8 starts this month, and ends on March 9th. If your student spends 10 hours in recreational reading…the reward is a free admission to Silverwood Theme Park! Forget about snow and ice, and concentrate on rides and waterparks and summer and screamingly happy kids and sign up at the Deer Park site library. Such a deal! Information and tally sheets await you!

Who’s remembering to check the "Lost and Found" in the D.P. hall by the Weight Room? That’s why we chose that spot – those clothes wait. For you. To lift them.

HERE are the upcoming dates: Tuesday, 1/24 - 1-3pm; Wednesday, 1/25 - 10-Noon; Thursday, 1/26 - 1-3pm. These opportunities are all taking place in the DP Mothers’ Room. The topics for NEXT WEEK’S get-togethers are: Why Homeschooling? Discussing our motives (why did we choose this?). Creating a mission statement for our family homeschool. And lastly, what keeps us going, especially at this time of year? (You have responses? Curious about what’ll be said? Better come and add to the richness!)

THANK YOU, Sharlene Steverding and your troubadours, for all the warmth your weekend productions brought to all the hearts attending. Adoring applause to each actor, actress, support staff, and you, madam director!!
