Fall Enrollment is now OPEN!!

Good evening families! 

I just wanted to send everyone a quick message to let you know that registration is now open for the fall semester! Prior to applying, I’d like to do a family interview with you so I can learn how to best serve you this coming year. It’s an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better and look forward to the upcoming school year together. Please click the link below and choose the day/time that works best for you and your spouse to meet via zoom with me to secure your spot for fall. If you prefer in person, I’m happy to arrange that as well. Following that interview, I will send out the application so you can enroll for the fall semester. 

Lastly, we are having our Community Policy and Procedures handbook looked over at this time to be sure we are set for any laws changing to protect our families and community. You will receive an email prior to your interview, please look it over and have any questions ready.

Please let me know if you have any more questions!

Getting ready for Week 1

We are just a week away from our first week!   I am really looking forward to getting started with you all.

The best way to prepare is to first remind you that YOU are your student’s teacher.  I am going to model the information and help you learn.  I recommend for you to accomplish the following before class:

  • Read The Expedition in your EEL (Essentials of the English Language).  There is a helpful blog post at halfahundredacrewood.com that you might want to check out.  Click here to access it.
  • Skim/Read through Week 1.  Don’t worry if you don’t understand it all.  Understanding will come in time!
  • Be prepared.  Make sure to bring your books and resources to community day. Figure out how you will transport all these items now, so you don’t forget anything Monday morning. Click here for the list of what you should bring on Monday.

Looking forward to our Week 1!  I pray that this year, as we journey towards greater knowledge of words, it would lead us to a greater knowledge and love of the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ.

In Him,

Mrs. Nord
