Special Education Monthly Newsletter

Our Special Education's October newsletter is here, and it's packed full of great information for parents!

Lending Library

We are so excited to open our doors and serve our Inspire families at the Lending Library! At this time, the Lending Library will be open on Fridays from 10am to noon and 3pm to 5pm for pick-ups only. Once you receive an email stating that your items are available for pick-up, please feel free to stop by the Lending Library on Fridays during either of the 2 block pick-up times to retrieve your order.

Please note: when you enter the Lending Library site, the Costa Mesa location will not come up as an option, as we are still adding items. You are able to borrow from other locations, and select Costa Mesa as a pick-up location.

Picture Day

We are excited to announce a picture day for anyone who needs to get a teacher ID card, or photos done of their children. Please join us on at Tustin Sports Park on November 2nd, 2018 from 11am to 1pm. Payment can be made via cash, check or credit card. If you have any questions, please contact Lori Silvio-

Homeschooling advice

"Then morning arrives and boom: the new homeschool day with all its duties and responsibilities hits you front and center, the issues that concerned you still surround you at the breakfast table, and you have no idea how the hours from now until bedtime will ever pass.

Welcome to a bad homeschool day.

Take comfort in the fact that they come to us all–newbie or veteran, beginner or seasoned pro. No matter how much experience we gain as homeschool mothers or fathers, we will never completely eliminate them."

Taken from "How to be a good homeschool mom on a bad homeschool day" by Jaime Martin
