Weekly Update - Easter Break

Scripture for Meditation

"He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples." Matthew 28:6-8

Memory Masters

Please make sure you inform me if your child is planning to test for Memory Masters and what their shirt size is. I want to make sure to order the shirts before they get back ordered. Thanks!

Standardized Testing

Jessica Harper will be our new Testing Coordinated. Stay posted for more information to come.


At Classical Conversations Testing Services, we believe that standardized testing is an important part of preparing students for college entrance exams, whether your state mandates testing or not. We take a very pragmatic attitude towards testing: The test results are not as important as the skill of test-taking, though achievement tests do provide parents with reliable data for evaluating progress in language and math skills. Each year, we offer local, on-site testing for grades 3–12 through our communities. We are looking for a homeschool parent from this community to coordinate testing this year. For more details, and to apply, visit www.cctestingservices.com.

Calling all photographers
