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.

The 2016 Super Bowl is over! Winners are celebrating; all manner of snack foods in American tummies are digesting; football is done and in the books. Why, that’s just like our two week period of class-changing for the second semester – it’s over! Done! We so hope that your kiddos are pleased with all their choices. Time to stay put, and maximize all that each teacher brings. Thanks for obliging!
There will be a workshop THIS Wednesday, Feb 10, for all students, and parents interested in attending either Running Start or the Skills Center next year. Rod Armbruster will be your guide through the information and deadlines. The site will be Deer Park, in the Science Room; at 3 pm. Don’t miss it!
The situation with the Mahanov boys has made us very mindful of the need to contribute to the Blood Bank. There is a sign-up sheet (with Connie) for anyone who is available to give of this life source, on Tues, Feb 16; from 11:30 through 5 pm. Location is at DP Physical Therapy.
Call-out to all our graceful ones! The Choreographers’ Showcase is coming up—February 25th, at 3:30 pm, at Deer Park. Come and behold the beauty of our dancers’ performances!
One of our parents is asking that everyone remember the importance of returning to highway 395 from the Clayton site by using Railroad through Clayton, and hooking back onto the highway at the Clayton Drive-in. Traipsing down Swenson, and peeling out on 395, so as to be ahead of traffic coming around that hairpin curve is playing against the odds. Let’s not.
Home school Ski Days are Thursdays, at Mt. Spokane, and Friday, at Silver Mountain. Check our website for details. The forum is Community Resources/Activities…and swoooooooosh your heart out!
Don’t miss this educational opportunity for your children to see the musical presentation of Mary Poppins, performed by Spokane’s Christian Youth Theatre. Our own Anna Smoll and Micah Ziegler are cast in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure. Using a combination of magic and common sense, Nanny Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. CYT is offering Home Link families reduced tickets to see the school days performances. This is a great opportunity for a drama/theatre field trip for your family, at only $5 per ticket. If interested in these reduced tickets, please fill out an envelope with Connie, at the Deer Park office and enclose your check payable to Terry Ziegler or CASH. Deadline to purchase tickets is: Tuesday, February 16th! Sorry there will be NO DOOR Sales for school days shows. The show is held at the Bing Crosby Theatre. The dates are Tuesday, March 1st and Wednesday, March 4th; with show times at 10:00am and 12:30pm both days.
