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 - April 13 through 17, 2015

Rested up and feelin fine as we start this first week after break? Good! Because busy, packed times are upon us-- if you tip your head up and squint--why, you can see the end of the school year out there!
Any lingering Home Link yearbook cover ideas are due this Wed, April 15th. Thanks for all the support and participation! Action shots of students? Get them to Penny Petrina!
BYU-Idaho’s choral workshop is at DPHS this Thurs, April 16th, at 10am, in the Ken Fisher auditorium. Interested Home Link students, 6 through 12th grade, are urged to participate...contact Molly, now!
Dance Pictures! If your child is in Dance Team, Tap, Jazz or Ballet your individual and group pictures are THIS Friday, April 17. Please remember to be there 30 min. before your scheduled photo time, to get dressed! If you have questions contact your dance instructor.
Our Ballet/Dance Performance is Saturday, April 25th. This is one of our bigger events of our year, you know! Show times are 12:00 and 3:00 pm. A "Voyage d'Amite" will be spotlighting our ballet and jazz classes - it’s one delight after another. The performance will be held at the Deer Park High School. Free tickets? You bet! Ask at the front desk.
Another delight is Nick Moeller's senior piano recital, on April 24; 6:30 pm at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, in Spokane. There's room on the pew for you! Another senior, Annie Cromer, is inviting all of us to support breast cancer research by walking enmass in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, on Sunday, April 26, at 9 am. Look for poster information on the ‘Firepinks’…YOU, YOU, and YOU are needed!
The computer lab at Deer Park will be open from 3 till 4:30 pm.on Tues, Wed, Thurs. for the next two weeks (the lab at Clayton will NOT be available). If your children need computer opportunities to take practice tests for the upcoming state testing; now's the time! The actual tests will encompass the weeks of April 27 - May 1 and May 4 - 8, for grades three through eight. Check the calendars we put in mailboxes for the when's and where's of each grade's testing. State testing for 10th and 11th graders, by the way, is June 2 and 3. The after-school practice opportunities are for any interested high school students as well. Come all! Relatedly, this year’s state testing has generated much interest in refusals, and program impact. I am very willing to discuss this, as well as how our out-of- district enrollment affects district, and program accountability. Come see me!
Biology EOC practice sessions are scheduled for these consecutive Tuesdays: May 12, 19, and 26, from 3:15 to 5:15 pm. at Deer Park. Biology EOC is June 4.

Call Gina at 276-5511, with questions.
End of the year Fair, June 1st, 10-2 pm. IT'S COMING!!! Join us in celebrating the end of the year with games, face painting, class demonstrations, lunch, cotton candy, popcorn and soooo much more! But... we need you to make it happen. Over 40 volunteers are required to make this day a great success. If you are willing to donate one hour of your time, working a booth, please sign up now at the front office!
I’m remembering this cartoon of a hunched, older woman, asking a salesman about a stove. “Don’t you have one with a bigger back burner? I have a lot of things I really can’t handle right now.” Oh ya! All our plates are full, aren’t they? Remember the jugglers on the Ed Sullivan show who balanced four, five or six spinning plates on impossibly long poles perched on their chins or noses? And none of them were even Moms! You hang in there! Now's the time to roll up our sleeves and say, "spin it!" and take it on the chin (or nose!) with a flourish and a smile, sweet ones!!
