We are so excited to begin our new school year with you! The Collaborative team has been meeting together the past couple of days, and we are looking forward to all that this year has in store. Janette Kiso will be working with families of K-2, 3-5 families will be with Katie Steele, and Jennifer Johnson will be working with 6-8 families until Ethel Brown returns to us later this Fall from maternity leave. You will learn more about us at the Parent Educator Conference and we look forward to getting to know each of you!
DVIA is jumpstarting the year with a Parent Educator Conference on Monday, August 14th and Tuesday, August 15th. You may choose which day you would like to attend (or both). See the newsletter for more details. As part of PEC, we will be discussing topics relevant to everyone in the collaborative program, whether you are a veteran or brand new to homeschooling. We will connect and meet other families, collaborate with each other, all share ideas for starting the new year, and gain helpful insight to our unique program.
We are each excited about the workshops we are planning for our group, and we know you are anxious to get more information. So, look out for workshop information coming your way from each of us in the next few days. As a reminder, workshops will be offered to the Collaborative students on Tuesdays for grades 6-8, Thursdays for grades 3-5, and Fridays for grades K-2.
DVIA will have an open campus event on Wednesday, August 16, from 12pm - 2pm. See the newsletter for more details. Just after the open campus, you are welcome to join us at Del Aire Park (12601 Isis Avenue in Hawthorne) for a fun, social gathering! They have a wonderful playground and there is an enormous field as well as a basketball court. Bring along some outdoor toys, balls and fun! Anyone up for organizing some field games?
Keep your eyes peeled for a couple of newsletter blasts this week with general announcements as well as information about enrichment.
See you soon!
Katie, Jennifer, & Janette
