What's Happening July 4-8

Raven Homeschool, Delta Junction

Welcome to the New School Year!

The 2016-2017 school year began July 1. It is an exciting time with much to forward to.

Heidi, your Advisory Teacher and Administrative Assistant, Julie are here to support your homeschooling needs as well as planning and organizing activities, events, field trips and such with the help of our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).

Ryan Tilbury, our Advisory Counselor, will be visiting about once a month to work with our students and families in planning out academic goals and providing information on scholarships and other educational opportunities.

Congratulations to the Vorobyov Family!

Their name was drawn for the enrollment incentive drawing in June. They have won a brand new Dell ChromeBook computer!

ILP and Paperwork Meetings

If you have enrolled for the 2016-2017 school year, you can call to make an appointment to complete paperwork and your student(s)' Individual Learning Plans. While you may try just stopping by, this is a busy time and it is best to make an appointment. Doing so will save you time and frustration. Please call the office at 895-2280 and we will set aside time for you.

If you have not yet re-enrolled, you may do so by going to your dashboard in Brightways. If you need assistance, please feel free to call or stop by. We will be glad to help you.

Methods of Communication

Heidi mails out a monthly newsletter to all our Delta Raven Families. The newsletter shares what our students and families have have done the past month as well as activities and events coming up. Included with the newsletter is a calendar listing events and activities, financial and academic deadlines and some other community events.

The letters are followed up by weekly emails with reminders and any updates to date or time changes, office closures and Raven program information. Please be on the lookout for these emails for the latest information.

Raven wide information is also sent out through the Raven's Call Newsletter. The latest newsletter is available through the link on the Raven website (www.ravenhomeschool.com). We have copies of the newsletter in the office as well.
