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 - November 20 through 22, 2017

Don’t forget – Morning classes only this Wednesday – with NO noontime buses. Now don’t forget to pick your kiddos up (sharp!) because they’re dying to eat the following: rolls, turkey, mashed potatoes, apple slices, marshmallow and squash, pretzel layered jello, enchiladas, pies and stuffing. I asked kids what their first bite of the Thanksgiving meal would be, and those delights got top billing. One young boy said, “Stuffing.” Quickly followed by, “what is stuffing made of? Is it the heart of the turkey?” My taste buds say YES! ‘Tis the heart of the meal!

NOV PROGRESS REPORTS – could you serve those up, along with the mashed potatoes, please??!!!

On Saturday, Dec 9, IEW will be holding a Winter retreat. It’s free, with some excellent-sounding sessions: Struggling Learners/Special Education: Strategies for Teachers and Parents, with Andrew Pudewa and Linda Mikottis; Four Deadly Errors of Teaching Writing, with Andrew Pudewa; Classical Education: Then and Now, with Andrew Pudewa and Robert Bortins; What's all the Fuss About Reading Aloud? With Andrew Pudewa, Sarah Mackenzie, and Adam Andrews. Need a renewal?? THIS might be the ticket, and it’s from the comfort of your home! See the informational flier in your mailboxes.

Hey folks - H&R Block in Deer Park is looking for part-time help (parent or older student). This is through the tax season. Flexible hours, some evenings and weekends. It is a customer service/receptionist position. YOU interested? Please contact Dennis Harmon 995-1839.

During these cold winter days, students wearing beanies or stocking caps may keep them on while in the school building, as long as we’re able to see all of the cute face beneath it. We’re sorry, but sun glasses, billed hats, and hoodies must remain a no.

Thanks for the great efforts last week to keep things quieter and more manageable in the Family rooms! Much improved atmosphere. Keep it up; much appreciated!

“On Thanksgiving, I get to set the table at my Grandma’s house. My Grandpa’s job is to cook the turkey and my brother and I make berry pie. We always make cranberry jam. I love the stuffing and it is my uncle’s favorite part. We also have potatoes and gravy. We always have delicious pumpkin pie. I am super thankful for the pie!!!!!!!!!! All of my family loves Thanksgiving. I eat too much, like the pilgrims did. We also had a Friendsgiving, but I like family thanksgiving best.” I’m with 5th grader, Makensey Moss - all of my family loves Thanksgiving, too. As does yours, I’m sure. May every person around your table be totally blessed by the meal shared, and especially by the time spent together. A most wonderful holiday to all you dear ones!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
