Welcome to 2019-2020 school year. Things have started slowly. But now, we have exciting news about some events to share with you.
First is that the school will be having badminton classes on Friday nights from 7 to 9 pm at the Homestead High School Gym . Parents and friends can come to learn and play. Please dress in gym clothes and non-marking shoes. Also please bring your own racket. We will have a badminton coach who can give you tips on how to improve your game. The coach is Ken Ng, one of the Board members who also teaches badminton at Mission College. We are very fortunate to have him as coach. To offset the expenses, the annual fee is $100 for 11 sessions which includes the usage of birdie. We will limit 24 players per evening. Drop ins ($15/session per person) will be permitted if space is available. The first session is this Friday, Oct. 18.
If you are interested in joining the class, please fill out this Google Form to show your interest. Then print out this waiver form and bring it to school on Friday Oct 18. Finally, pay your fee on Friday to guarantee your spot.
The second piece of news is that the school has invited a college prep counselor, John Raftrey, to talk to us about how to prepare your child to college. The date is Nov. 15 from 7:30 to 8:15pm in Room B108. He will talk to us about how some parents to prepare their children for college. Afterwards he will be available for questions and answers. Below is a John's biography.
