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 - December 4 through 8, 2017

The Christmas Craft Show and Auction is here! This Wednesday, Dec 6, make your way to Deer Park, in the District Training room. Homemade items, from jewelry to soaps; art to rugs; quilts to folk art and more – will be on display. And sweetly priced! Glad that you’re coming…and yes, the Auction for the Stallings, is ongoing; get here!

Shannon Siemens Choir Class will be having a performance at Mont Lamm, on Tuesday, Dec 12th at 4:00 pm. You coming??!

Check the lost and founds at both sites BEFORE you head off to shop at Christmas!

DECEMBER’s progress reports are due Dec 8. Yes, that’s really what I said! Crazy-seeming, even that gives consultants only one week to respond to your reports before our last day, December 15. Could you please put the 8th on your MUST-DO radar? And thanks!

Auditions for the second semester play "Father Knows Best" will be held this Wednesday, December 6 from 4-9 pm, and Thursday 3:30 -5:30 pm (please notify Sharlene if planning to audition on Thursday). The location: D.P. Teachers’ Lounge. Audition paper work is in the main office; ask Connie, if needing help. And please note this audition is for grades 9-12. Thank you! Any questions contact Sharlene: sharlene.steverding@dpsdmail.org

This Saturday, Dec 9, IEW will be holding a winter retreat.

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.

Yep, Hat week cometh! Students may choose any crazy hat to adorn their head/outfit NEXT week!

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.

During this transition time between two holidays, when it’s so easy to feel over-maxed, there’s this lovely thought: “After all," Anne had said to Marilla once, "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” Concentrate on those simple pleasures, dear ones – they sweeten life.
