Some families have informed us about problems receiving their February '23 invoices. Thank you for your patience as we sort it out.

In the meantime, please remember that students and their families can access all their invoices on Teachworks.

(For detailed instructions on setting up your Teachworks account, click here.)

Thank you!


Parents and Students:

I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine last week. We are in for some more rain, but thankfully it isn't anything like the last storm.

A couple of things to know:

1. We will be closed Feb 13, 14, and 20 for holidays. I know it is rough for our Monday students, so please let us know if you want to squeeze in a session in between there. I heard that PCS will change to a *ski week* break next year rather than the back to back holidays. Fingers crossed!

2. I will be out of the office Thursday, Feb 9th. I know it's not great timing, so let me know If you would like to do a Zoom session that weekend.

3. Some families are able to write off their tuition on their taxes. Check with your accountant or tax preparer if this can apply to you.

4. High school students: sometime in the next month, you will be picking classes for next year. Please email me if you want to discuss options.

5. Juniors: it is time to start looking at colleges. Set aside 20 minutes a week to take virtual tours, read a college guide (like Fiske), or listen to a podcast. Get familiar with the application process. Start thinking about what major is a good fit for you, whether you want a big or small school, rural or urban, etc. Set up a spreadsheet with all the different factors to help guide you through the decisions. There is a lot you can do before you go on a college tour.

Rain or shine, we are here for you. Don't be afraid to ask for help or for advice. We want the best for you, always.


Parents and Students:

I hope you had a wonderful holiday. It is going to be a rainy New Year, but it's perfect for curling up with some hot chocolate and a good book.

Just a few things:

1. We will be back in session Monday, January 9th. I will check the messages periodically, then we will hit the ground running and go from there.

2. With the late start, I am extending the due date for the January invoices to Thursday, 1/12.

3. Please join us in welcoming Narjes Faragi to our team. Narjes is an SSU grad and is currently in a masters program at Dominican. She is an experienced tutor, and we are very happy to bring her on board. She will be shadowing Phil and me for two weeks, so stop by and say hello. Narjes will work with K-10 students and some high school math.

4. Thank you for your patience with all the changes to the schedule with winter sports and activities. We still have a few families waiting for trades, but I hope to have things settled by mid-January.

5. 'Tis the season for Monday holidays. We will be closed Monday 1/16 for Martin Luther King, Jr Day. In February, we will be closed 2/13, 2/14, and 2/20. In March we will close for spring break 3/27-31st. We will wait to see what PCS will do with the emergency make up days.

With the new semester, we have a fresh start. Let's take a deep breath and dig in. Let's make 2023 a year to remember!
