Hello families,

The kids were amazing this week during testing! They tried so hard, and were so focused. As each finished on our final day, they applauded and cheered for each other as they left the

room : )  We ended playing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” and had a well deserved Sundae party.

What a gorgeous day at QH Ranch for our Final Capture the Flag of the year. We had 38 players of all ages running in the sunshine. This is a longtime tradition which began decades ago with SLV Homeschool. Thank you for continuing to show up and support this community event!

Month 9 Paperwork was due today:

With the focus on testing this week I neglected to send home student folders on Wednesday. I sent them home yesterday. *Please return signed Attendance Sheets on Monday with your student.*

QHIA End of Year Survey

Our survey has been sent in a separate email. The beauty of this program is that all of you help me co-create the environment and brainstorm activities that enrich our student's social, personal, and academic growth. Your feedback helps facilitate changes and suggestions to make QHIA even better next year.

Great America:

  • We are set for Tuesday, June 12.

  • Please send your student with $30 cash or check (made out to Amber Walker) per person attending, as I have to purchase in advance with a credit card. *ASAP

  • If you and/or your student has a pass of some kind, please let me know so I don’t purchase any extra tickets
