San Luis Obispo Classical Academy San Luis Obispo Classical Academy

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.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. 
~Aesop, “The Lion and the Mouse”

Have you come up with a fun, creative way to display our school’s character traits in your home, yet? If not, do not despair; there is still time. Perhaps the “need” to make it look a certain way has paralyzed your process. Don’t let it!  Post them on your refrigerator or tape them to the bathroom mirror.  One of the strengths of our program is that we, as parents, have so many opportunities to talk about and deliberately nurture character in our children. Let’s not waste the amazing opportunities that come our way!

Last month, we talked about fostering gratitude and this month’s character trait is kindness. Let’s be intentional about practicing acts of kindness in our homes this month.  Perhaps each member of the family draws another family member’s name and performs random acts of kindness for that person throughout the week.  Bake cookies for a lonely neighbor, or pull out the trash cans for the elderly man on your street.  There are so many ways to nurture our children (and ourselves) in this area.

How do you foster kindness in your home?  Leave a comment and be entered into a drawing for a Starbucks gift card.  Or, tell us how you display our character traits in your home.  Drawing closes next Wednesday.
