Classical Conversations

Weekly Line-up

Cycle 1 Week 16


I love taking the opportunity of Valentine's Day to help my children learn how to show Jesus' love to everyone! Everything went really well last week as we combined classes. Thank you for being so flexible and just rolling with it as we homeschoolers have to do often! There will be a few changes to the rosters - I will email you directly if this affects your kiddos.


Next week - Feb 18th:

* Foundations and Essentials have a break.

* The Symphony in Prescott.

* Challenge B meets for normal classes.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
