A NOTE FROM MS. NANCY/MS. DEBI

We are coming to a close of another school year. We are very thankful for all of our families and your support throughout the year. We want to thank all that has reregistered with us for next year. We still have a few slots open in every age group so if you know of anyone looking for a school, please let them know about us. For any of our families that will be leaving us, we want to wish you the best of luck wherever you go and thank you for letting us have your child for part of their education. We wish everyone a safe summer and look forward to another school year. We will be sending out letters in June along with your first billing and with more information and calendars for each of you. We will see you in August. Have a safe summer!

The women and children remained on the home front, fighting battles of their own. This tour consists of the first- hand accounts of the heroic people left behind at Stately Oaks. Students have the opportunity to pitch in with daily chores, dress in 1860’s clothing, play period games and tour the historic home. Government/History: Washington D.C. our nation’s capital. Science: Ornithology – Study of birds and their habitats. Geography: Southern States.
