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 - May 22 through 26, 2017

This was overheard as one young charmer was talking to another: “These dandy-lions are my very favorite flower; they’re beautiful, beautiful! So you know what my Mom did? She planted them ALL over our yard!” You just can’t script what comes from the mouth of (our) babes!
OK, me darlins…have you put in next year’s Learning Plans? Oh good – that can lead to yummy stuff!
You’re planning on picking up your Fair tickets this week from Connie, and signing any remaining paperwork? Truly excellent!
You already have your Silverwood tickets from the DP Library? I say, let the shrieking screams begin!
You’re all signed up as a Fair volunteer? You are a perfect human being!
You even FOUND the LOST clothes items of your children?? Too much!
And the Progress reports for May (and June)???! Gimme a break, you say?? Oh, but that I could!
