Flip Grid Video - End of the School year Reflection 

As we come to the end of the year, please reflect on what you've enjoyed most about homeschooling this year and what you have loved learning.  Please make a short video recording yourself sharing your reflections.  Amy and Cathy hope that every homeschool student will make one.  We want everyone to see and hear one another to celebrate this year we've shared together.

School Garden - THANK YOU Volunteers! Garden Volunteer Sign-up

The garden is thriving thanks to all the great work our volunteers are putting in!  When you are at the garden be sure to wash your hands before and after your visit (soap is by the water spigot) and check out our new garden mailbox.  We still need more volunteers to help all the way through the summer so please sign-up. To sign up, visit the google doc page to let us know if and when you can volunteer.  The signup includes an embedded link on how to care for our school garden. Please let us know if you have any questions. 


The (Almost) Monthly Press - Due June 5th by noon

 Link to Monthly Press

Thank you writers and editors!  There are already several wonderful pieces in the Press.  It’s our final publication of the year.  Wouldn’t it be great if everyone submitted something?  Let’s make it happen!   Once you have completed your submission, use the link above or below to add it to the very end of The (Almost) Monthly Press. If you add it at the beginning or the middle, it messes up the formatting of the other submissions, so please add your submission after the last one you see on the document.


Fun Friday Calendar - WebEx style

Happy End of the School Year Visit - June 9th and 10th 

Cathy and Amy plan to travel around to visit all of our amazing DSIS students on June 9th and 10th and to say happy end of the school year.  We will talk to you ahead of time to let you know when we are coming by and plan on saying hi from at least a 6 foot distance.  We would just really like to end the school year in person.  No worries if that will not work for some families.  We will be checking in with everyone and planning the visit. 


Library Book Drop Off - June, 12th from 8AM-1PM

DSIS will have a curbside library book and textbook drop off for all materials.  We will be receiving books at the back blue library door that faces B street (not in the parking lot). Look for a sign. You can pull up and park on B street and bring the materials to the door for drop off.  Please remember to wear a mask and maintain social distancing if more than one family is present at the same time.  


We apologize if you have received this email by mistake. Please let us know and we will remove you from the list.


Thank You,

Cathy Bucher and Amy Thomson
