Message from the Exploration Director

Dear iLEAD AV Exploration Families,

This week marks the end of LP 8! Please be sure your learner has completed their assigned work. Remember: In independent study/home study, attendance is granted through the completion of the body of assigned work. We want to make sure your learner is earning their full attendance for the LP.

Next week, May 15, we will begin our CAASPP State Testing. Learners in 3rd grade and up all participate in this yearly assessment. Please let your EF know if you would like your child to test in person or virtually. In-person testing will take place in our classroom May 15-18. Virtual testing will be held May 22-26. Thank you for ensuring your child is registered for their tests. Our goal is 100% participation in order to meet state requirements. Kiddos who come to our classroom to test will get some extra-special treats during testing.

Thanks again for all your support.

Have a wonderful week!

With gratitude,

Terri Budke
Director of North LA County Exploration

Meetup Info

We will be hosting iLEAD AV Exploration meetups for the next several weeks. We hope you and your family are able to attend! Below are the dates and details for our meetups.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to spending time with you and your families and connecting as a homeschool community!

Tuesday, May 9: AV Rural Museum at 10 AM

The purpose of the Antelope Valley Rural Museum is to develop a permanent historical museum for the citizens of the Antelope Valley by collecting, preserving, restoring, exhibiting, and researching facts and artifacts pertinent to its history.

This is a perfect trip, especially for 3rd graders to help them meet their local history standard. All learners are welcome to come learn about the history of the Antelope Valley through preserved artifacts and with the guidance of an experienced docent.

Thursday, June 1: Mission San Buenaventura Meetup 10 AM

More information to come!

Curriculum Return Week

Curriculum return week will be held the week of June 12. Your EF will contact you with a sign-up sheet. Please start locating items from the beginning of the year, if needed. Please return all items.
