SHA's 5th annual Closing Program and Meet & Greet will be held on the school's last day, Monday, May 19th. This will be held at Southern Hills Church's Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall.
* The event opens at 9:30 AM but the actual Closing Program presentations ( current teachers/students) will start at 10:00 AM. Coming at 9:30 will enable you to check out the Book Sale and meet available teachers who'll be setting up their booths. IF you had to leave early, this is an option for you and perhaps more convenient, too.
* The Meet and Greet begins at 12 Noon and will last ~ one hour. All 15 instructors will be available to talk to/ask questions.
* There'll be an hour long Panel Discussion available primarily for parents of middle/highschool students. The panel is made up of veteran homeschool moms who would like to help you plan for your students’ futures and discuss: record keeping - service ideas - Clep tests - dual credit - CORE 40 - how to issue a diploma - why a transcript is crucial in ‘backing up’ the diploma - what to include in a transcript - how to assign credits when you use “unit studies” - what to put into your child’s portfolio - when you can "double-dip" in giving high school credits - how to calculate a “GPA” and why you must do it - and more..
