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.

Monday is St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s a fun St. Patrick’s Mad-Libs type of game your kids might enjoy. Or maybe try this clover pin if you’re looking for a sweet craft to make with the kiddos. 

For centuries the clover (or shamrock) has been an emblem of Ireland. Part of an old Irish song gives St. Patrick the credit for bringing the plant to Ireland:

There’s a dear little plant

   that grows in our Isle

’Twas St. Patrick himself

   sure that set it.

And the sun on his labor

   with pleasure did smile, 

And with dew from his eye

  oft-times wet it.

It grows through the bog,

   through the brake,

   through the mire land,

And he called it the dear

   little shamrock of Ireland.

Click here for lots more about St. Patrick. 

Have a wonderful weekend, and we hope to see you tomorrow night at 5:00 pm at the SLO Country Club for our magnificent evening at Mount Olympus!
