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 21 through 25, 2015

‘Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower.’ What a lovely analogy of the splendor around us… watching the leaves put on their finest colors for their dance with the wind is something, isn’t it?!
Hey there, Moms, might you remind your younger children to go to the Mothers Room, at the end of the day? If they could remain there until you pick them up, it would be a great help in our effort to keep your kiddos, and the building, secure. Three o’clock is a crazy time, I know, but made more manageable by that rule. Thanks much! And on a similar note—please, please remember to sign your child out at the front desk, if your pull him/her from classes (for a doctor’s apt, let’s say). If the next class’s attendance highlights that your child is missing – after a search, we’re obligated to call the sheriff. Gulp.
80% of September’s progress reports are in (yeah!) and we thank you kindly! Bring in the rest!
Parents of sophomores and juniors – you’ll be receiving information in your mailboxes about the upcoming PSAT test, which will be administered at the Deer Park High School on October 14, at 8 am. Cost is $18, and the deadline to sign up is next Thursday, Oct 8th. Consultant Rod Armbruster assembled the information for us, and his letter specifies many of the key benefits of taking this test, should your son or daughter be college-bound. Three essential features of the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) are: a student’s PSAT results are the ONLY measurement used to determine eligibility for the National Merit Scholarship, which is the most prestigious scholarship in the country; the test is offered only once each year (Oct 14th); the PSAT cost of $18 is significantly more affordable than the cost of the actual SAT; and the results are a good predictor of future SAT scores. Check your mail boxes for more!
Deer Park Schools are teaming with "Directions" - a program that offers mental health services including individual and family counseling in the schools. This program is primarily geared to children who are Medicaid eligible. This district program is run by Home Link Mom, Suzie Toews. For more information, contact Molly Murphy or email Suzie at Stoews@yfaconnections.org
For those of you with questions about the availability of MAP testing, please know that MAP now has a new testing format which is requiring an administrative transition within our program . We’re busy complying, and we’ll alert parents as soon as MAP testing is available.
The Home Link Harvest Party is Thursday, Oct. 22th, from 3:00-5:00pm. Come and join us for fun, food and prizes! Check out the new Black Light Room, plop the pumpkin, 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 planning on attending would bring a bag of individually wrapped candy to share and put it in the basket marked “Harvest Party” located in the front office. Also, if you would like to help out at a booth or be a part of the clean-up crew, please sign up today! (Remember: children’s’ costumes remain at home.)
Here’s a fantastic message, from a child’s book:
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so get on your way!
It makes me want to get up and move and accomplish and have a great spirit about the whole adventure of learning and growing, and becoming who we are meant to be. Whew! Let’s get on our way together—there’s a wonderful year ahead, darlins…thanks for taking us along!
