Get Ready for our FSP Showcase! Tuesday Evening April 24th! 6pm-9pm

FSP’s END OF THE YEAR SHOWCASE!  We will be having a community showcase of our students’ work from 6pm to 9pm  April 24, 2018.  We are asking all FSP students to contribute something to the showcase this year.  It can be as big as a project board or project or as small as a work portfolio or pictures from the year.  We will have a display section for Science, History, Arts, Language, & Electives,   What accomplishment are you proud of this year? Share it with all of us! We want to see what you have been doing.  Co-Ops are welcome to exhibit unit projects or crafts or lapbooks.  We are looking for anything that helps represent your homeschool in our showcase.  The SOAR Co-Op classes will be giving presentations and there will be opportunity for presentations in each subject area later the evening.  Please be thinking about what you will be contributing this year.  A pizza dinner and other concessions will be on sale at the Showcase for your enjoyment.  This is an opportunity to invite friends and family to come see what homeschooling looks like.  Sign up here.

Standardized Testing May 7-8, 2018

This year we are trying something different. We are partnering with the Classical Conversations group in Damascus, Maryland for Standardized Testing. Cost is the same as we have asked in the past.  We have not had a large number of testers the last few years so teaming up with another group seemed like the best way to continue to offer standardized testing for our families. If you click the sign up link below you will find information on the tests from Homeschool Testing Services. There are drop down menus for test registration and payment, testing options and proctor info.  Please take a moment to peruse the information.  Proctors are needed – if you are able to proctor please contact Lori Butler (lbofccdamascus@gmail.com) directly.  You must have a 4 year degree to proctor the tests.  I hope many of you take advantage of these tests this year.  Testing is May 7-8, 2018 at Bethesda United Methodist Church in Damascus MD.  https://homeschool-testing-services.myshopify.com/collections/Bethesda-United-Methodist-Church

Recruiting Tutors

If you tutor in a particular subject or subjects let us know.  FSP would like to keep a list of tutors available to FSP homeschooled children.  We will post it on our Yahoo Group so that all FSP families will have access to the list. What we need from you are names and contact information of tutors you know that you have worked with or that you can recommend to other homeschool families.  We will also need to know what subjects and grade levels they tutor.  We will contact them before we publicize their information so if you just give us contact information that is fine too. We have a wealth of resources among our FSP moms and dads that I’m sure can benefit others by way of tutoring. Hope to hear from you soon!
