Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Semper discentes—always learning together.

As History Day approaches, there is much discussion about costumes for our Wax Museum.  This is an excellent time to model resourcefulness.  What items of clothing do you already own that will work?  Can a trip to the thrift store be helpful?  Maybe trade items with a friend.  Costumes need not be expensive, nor elaborate replicas of the time period. Bed sheets (cut, pinned, draped, or sewn) are wonderful starting points and remember that suggesting the era with hairstyle, fabric or props can suggest the appropriate time period and character.

Let’s not lose the magic of History Day amongst the many details of pulling it all together. Semper discentes.
