Meetings for Student Learning Plans

Yesterday was the start of meetings with our consultants for the parents to develop student learning plans. If you have not signed up for a meeting time, you need to go to the East Valley Homelink North website and go to the link for WSLP on the homepage.  You also need to make sure your child is registered as an East Valley student if you have not yet enrolled.  Plan for about one hour per child to develop your plan.  The GREAT news - we won't need to write monthly progress reports! Woo hoo!

Location, Location, Location

We are excited to announce that a location has been chosen. This facility offers a beautiful park-like setting on 13 private acres.  There are two large multi-purpose rooms, a spacious kitchen, a second kitchen in one of the classrooms, and numerous rooms available for our classes as well as a mom's room and computer lab. Please refer to the East Valley Homelink North webpage or send us an e-mail and we will respond with the details.  Thank you!

The Name Game, Part II

I don't know about you...but for me, brainstorming something like a new name for our program works better when I can sit down and bounce ideas off another person and get instant feedback.  So if you are interested in participating in our Let's Get Creative brainstorming day, please send us an email or post a comment here so we can contact you with the details.  We are currently planning on next Wednesday the 7th, but depending on the response, that could change.  If the group is small, we will be meeting in a home in the Wandermere area.  If the group is large, we'll have to brainstorm a new location too.

Student Learning Plans & Curriculum Needs

It's Student Learning Plan time.  Before we can start classes or order curriculum, our Student Learning Plans must be in place with East Valley.  Because of the short time before the start of the school year and the changes to the rules governing ALE programs, we need to meet with a consultant to discuss our learning plans and curriculum needs.  Please go to the EVHLN website to schedule a time with a consultant. 

Parent Input Wanted

East Valley is seeking our input as they design a program around our children's needs.  With school starting in just 2 weeks, things will be changing at a rapid pace.   Please check in on the East Valley Home Link North website often to let your preferences be known.  They are getting some great feedback and we will continue to post updates here as new developments come to light.
