This past Friday was our annual Holiday Craft Fair, the culmination of many hours of work by students and their parents and our supportive teachers. Students from nearly all of our hybrid-homeschool programs participated in this annual event. This event is such a great example of entrepreneurial learning!

From our Counselor: Self Care

With demanding schedules, fundraisers, projects, family events, financial stretches and changed eating habits, sometimes the holidays can feel a little less than jolly. The expectations can be high, and things like Pinterest don’t help matters!

Dear Parents,

We are beginning a week-long holiday, under the focus of Thanksgiving.  As I was walking through classrooms Friday, one student said that Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday of the year.

As we transition into November, the holidays are around the corner and thus we are a third of the way into the school year. The rhythm of working on, completing, and most importantly turning schoolwork in on time has (hopefully) become routine...

The use of technology and the impact of social media on students and adults alike has become an issue that is near and dear to my heart. Personally, I think I am on screens too much..especially when I am with people whom I love and care about my relationship with. This year, I have made a strong commitment to monitor the amount of time I spend to review and send emails.
