Dear parents,

With Veterans’ Day this week, and Thanksgiving around the corner, we are heading straight into the holiday season quickly. It is also the season of increased busyness and family gatherings, which sometimes makes completing schoolwork a challenge. Homeschooling does provide flexibility of schedule, which is one of the benefits I most enjoy. I hope that you’re able to finish up the work you need to for this semester, and then can take some time off as needed to celebrate various special occasions this month and next.

Upcoming Events: (All events' details here on website)

Birmingham Veterans Day Parade
November 2019 Park Day
2019 ASO Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony
A Year with Frog and Toad - Birmingham Children's Theater Mainstage
December 2019 Park Day
Mr. Popper's Penguins -- Birmingham Children's Theater Wee Folks
2019 AL Ballet The Nutcracker

Please keep in mind that RSVPs for field trips give us a headcount that we then submit to locations we are visiting. If you receive an email asking to verify your commitment, but can no longer attend, *please respond* so that we can be respectful and update our information. It is inconsiderate to the facility when we have vastly different numbers than previously turned in, and are unaware that many families have changed plans but never let us know. We  do understand that you may sometimes need to cancel, and appreciate your communicating that info in time.

Thanks so much!! Jennifer, Casey and Eleanna
