Dear HP Families
As we wrap up our last Newsletter we, the staff of HPCS-Vacaville, would like to say THANK YOU!
Thank you for sharing your student with us. Thank you for doing the hard work of making sure that your student is successful with their education. The motto should always be 'Forward Movement' and we saw that time and time again with our students this year. We know that would not be possible without all of you, the third part of our academic triangle. You are the most important person in your students education with our program. You are doing the day to day of sitting at your table (maybe the couch, back porch, or even while laying in bed) teaching those math skills, reading and writing and learning about the world around them. Teaching your student is a full-time job and most of us, as homeschooling or independent study parents our selves, understand that task. We know that their are many choices for your students education and we want to thank you for partnering with us and making us, HPCS-Vacaville, your choice.
:: THANK YOU
to all of our families for getting your student to testing this week! If your student did not finish, was sick or your family was gone, your teacher will be working with you to do make-ups.

I’m pleased to announce that I will be organizing a non-school sponsored educational trip to Washington D.C and New York City through EE Explore America. This will take place in June of 2019.
This trip will be open for CURRENT 7th-12th grade students, their parents/guardian, and staff.

of their comfort zones and into the world around them. At the enrollment meeting, I'll answer questions, review the itinerary and officially begin to enroll students and parents on the tour. This is a great opportunity so I hope you and your child will be able to come and learn more.
