Cups of Conversation
For elementary Parents

CUPS of conversation book fair - WeDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14th, 8:15 AM -3:15 PM - Room C2086 - Click here for more information

As parents, we can all agree that so much of what we love about our special school are the distinctives that make it stand out apart from a traditional school setting. Our children enjoy narration, picture and composer studies, nature studies, and reading literature that is good, true, and excellent.

It is proven that for our children to get the most out of the unique and special education that Perimeter School provides, we need to be imitating these characteristics at home.

We invite all elementary parents to join Perimeter School mom Sarah Barber, Charlotte Mason educator Rebecca Little, and others for Cups of Conversation this school year as we dive deeper in to these distinctives to give you practical (and fun!) ways to weave them in to your every day home life.

Wednesday, November 14th, 8:30 -10:00 AM: HOLIDAY TRADITIONS & BOOK FAIR - click here for more information

Thursday, January 17th, 8:30 -10:00 AM: NATURE STUDIES

Other Opportunities

Reading Help for students in grades 2-8

MindPlay is a web-based reading program designed to improve reading ability, written language skills, and reading comprehension. Through a series of quick assessments, the program determines each student's reading deficiencies and creates a personalized learning plan to fill in the missing skills quickly. Your child only learns what he or she does not already know. The lessons are taught by virtual reading teachers who coach your child through each lesson until mastery is achieved. If your child struggles with a lesson, the teacher goes back and re-teaches the concept in a different way. For more information, visit MindPlay.com, call 800-221-7911 or email info@MindPlay.com.

Here at Perimeter School, Kym Mallory from the Horizons department is available for questions.
