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.

LAST WEEK of school; ho, ho, ho! And our first week back begins on Monday, Jan 5th. That’s 2015, folks!
I bet you’ve already noticed next semester’s schedules in your mailboxes?! Big thanks to Kara and Kaylene; really, how DO they do this scheduling feat? There’s one difference to note, and that’s the issue of weekly contact. Did you know that all our supplemental classes, academic and enrichment alike, have had consultant oversight since last January? (The consultants responsible for such oversight are Rod Armbruster, Carolyn Holbrook, Laurie Otteson, Carol Van Wormer and Molly Murphy; such worn-out souls!) It's a state compliance and we’ve done our best to make its impact minimal on families; hope that we’ve been successful! Consultant oversight of all 400 weekly classes, multiple times per month, is how contact time is now happening for each of your students, in every one of his/her classes. So, there's no need for you parents to factor certificated contact time into your student's class schedule. Of course, our certificated teachers are still exactly in place, providing wonderfully diverse skills for you to choose from. Do so! Similarly, the fantastic talents of every specialist are still available for your selection. Take that blessing and run with it! We are extremely grateful to all our teachers; they are THE backbone of a healthy schedule, and a vital reason why you have chosen this program. Everything is the same, aside from the (former) imperative of weekly contact through certificated classes. Questions? Ask them...this IS a Parent Partnership, you know! Front office number is 468-3355. My office number is 468-3357.
Patt Duff’s fiddle and ukulele students will be sharing their skills in the Mothers’ Room, Deer Park, this coming Wednesday. Time: Fiddlers at 1:30 pm; Ukulele at 2:20 pm. Bring your toe-tapping selves and join us!
This is the week of the Celtic Nutcracker performance!! The Kelly Irish Dancers are front and center at the Valley Prairie Grange on Dec 19, and 20; best be goin, me lads and lasses!
Please check Lost and Found for all its re-gifting possibilities, before the Christmas break!
Looking for a writing idea for the upcoming weeks? Well, don’t forget the American History Essay Contest. The title for the essay of 5th through 8th grade students is: A Child’s Journey through Ellis Island in 1892. Students in 9th through 12th grade are asked to write an essay on: Joining Christopher Columbus on His Voyage to the New World. Contest guidelines at either library. Due January 21, 2015.
Thank you, student drivers, for complying with our district’s new transportation directive between the Deer Park and Clayton buildings.
The majority of progress reports are in – YOU are something, hardest workers! Big thanks from all of us.
At this busy, dare I say, stressful time of year - may you experience a peaceful enjoyment of things that have nothing to do with money or gifts…perhaps games, or cooking bake-offs, or old movies, or family scrimmages…time shared with those you love. Someone far wiser than I said that contentment isn’t getting what we want, but being satisfied with what we have. How beautiful is that? On behalf of all of us at Home Link – the most Merry of all Christmases to you dear ones! See you next year!
