The BIG NEWS! Our bungalow is being installed and we hope to be able to start moving in and getting settled on Wednesday. When we are sure of the move-in date, we will invite you to help with settling in and creating the environment. If you have any suggestions for our space, please let me know.
Our first field trip, to Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, will be this Thursday and The Story of Los Angeles project starts this Friday. See our DP for more details, the sign up for the project and the field trip sign up and permission slip. I’ll send reminders the day before each.
PEC 1, our first parent educator conference of the year, will be held on Weds., August 31st at the Hawthorne Memorial Center. See the DVIA newsletter for more info. I strongly encourage you to attend. Michelle Rainey will get the day started with inspiring words and useful information. A team of our veteran Homeschool Collaborative educators (Heidi, Shiori and Victoria) will share their strategies for developing student passion-inspired learning and lead our group in creating your own plan (based on your child(ren)’s interests) to use at home. There will be a selection of mini-sessions intended to fill your toolkit and we will end, as always, with a raffle.
Reading A-Z and Writing A-Z are two of the resources DVIA provides. Contact me for log-in info.
Appointments for students to learn their ST Math passwords (or for veteran kids to get linked to this year’s class) are available in SignUpGenius. If you want to know more about ST Math, let me know. I highly recommend using it at home.
Office Hour appointments for September are available. Please don’t hesitate to sign up to meet, talk on the phone or video chat.
