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.

We are officially on Spring Break! Congratulations on completing Trimester 2 – it was a full one, and deeply rewarding thanks to all your efforts and enthusiasm both at home and at school. We hope you enjoy your spring break with loved ones near or far, and find time to rest and time to play.

While resting and playing, however, can you find some time to do a little spring cleaning and gather donations for our thrift store, Fred and Betty's? We are especially in need of men's clothing, but we can always use donations in every department!

Perhaps you've heard of the “40 bags in 40 days” idea for decluttering. (Click here for an explanation if you're curious what that is…) May we suggest even a “5 bags in 5 days” modified version for next week? Think of 5 areas of your home that need to be decluttered. Any area, large or small, such as a kitchen drawer or a bedroom closet. Go through them, and organize one area each day, bagging up anything that can be donated to Fred & Betty's. It's a win-win: you will be thrilled to have simplified a few areas of your home, and we will be grateful for the donations! 


Back to resting and playing – for those of you staying local during the break, here are a couple of siteswith ideas for spending Spring Break at home:

Down Home will also be taking a break next week. We will see you back here on Monday, March 31st!

One final note: The winner of our Show Your SLOCA Style contest is Cheryl McCabe – congratulations! Look for your school store gift certificate in your family file when we get back from the break. And to everyone else, it's never too late to send in your pictures wearing SLOCA gear. We hope to get lots more so snap those pics and email them to Down Home
