HAPPY BIRTHDAYS FOR OCTOBER:

We will be having a fundraising car wash on September
30th at Wal-Mart parking lot. It will start at 9:00 and last
throughout the afternoon. This car wash will be for buying
a copier for our Resource Center. Wal-Mart is helping us.
They are going to match the amount we make. We are in
great need to all the families that are willing to help. If
there are any supplies you can bring then please do so. We
will have a small reward for each child that comes and
participates. Also, whoever comes to help will get a
discount on their school t-shirts that we are taking orders
for this month. If you are going to make it then it would be
very helpful if you let us know ahead of time. Of course, if
you decide you can come at the last minute then we would
deeply appreciate it.
Please make sure your children stay inside at the Resource Center when
there is not a scheduled activity going on outdoors. We did have some
children get scratched up at our last activity.
Watch for a school directory to be put into your mailbox at the Resource
Center during the next couple of weeks.
If you would like to see our wonderful website then check it out!!! Our web
address is listed at the top of this newsletter.
Anyone needing a teacher card or report card then pick one up at the
Save your Campbell's labels as well as Prego, Pepridge Farm, V-8 and box
tops. Turn them in at the Resource Center.

fundraiser then please turn in your sale money with your October tuition by

Also a special thanks goes to one of our parents who gave us a generous
donation to help out with the school.

October 9th - T-shirt purchase deadline. We have found a place that deals with making t-
shirts for homeschool cover schools. They are running a great special for about a month.
We thought the children and even some parents would like to have shirts to wear to
different events and field trips we go on. A lot of parents have mentioned having these
shirts so the kids can all match when we go on an outing. Most of the children will have
these so if you don't want your child to miss out then you must place your order with the
group. There will be a really neat front on the t-shirt pertaining to homeschool and the
back will have the name of the school. You may order any size for adults (small,
medium, large, Xlarge, and XXlarge) and any size for your child ( small, medium, and
large). They are $8.00 for adult and $7.00 for a child. That will include the name on
back and the shipping. You may order sweatshirts instead of t-shirts, but they do cost a
little more. If you are interested in the sweat shirt prices then see Kim. You could
always wear a turtle neck under a t-shirt in the winter time. Please include in with your
money: what size and if it is for a student or a mother. If you or your child helped with
the car wash then they will be due a discount. Please check with Greta or Kim before
placing your order to see how much your shirt will be.

NO PHOTOGRAPHY on this tour due to religious beliefs. We will meet in Scottsboro at
the front of Food World parking lot and leave at 8:00 SHARP. If you do plan on meeting
us there then please let the school know so we know who to expect to show. If you prefer

directions once you sign up and pay to attend the field trip. You would need to meet us at
the entrance somewhere between 11:00 - 11:30. If you plan on doing this then please be
on time since the school will be writing out one check to pay for everything so we can
have the group rate. We will eat lunch as soon as we get there and then go on the tour
