Parent orientation will be Thursday, August 15th from 6:30 to 8:30. This is for Ingleside parents only. Please make plans to attend. There will not be a student orientation this year. The following is an overview of the agenda:
- Parents meet tutors, see classrooms, bring supplies for tutorial (not student supplies)
- Large group assembly: Opening remarks
- Review of class schedules: what Ingleside will be covering and what parents should cover at home (schedules are specific to each grade)
- Parents participate in hands on learning activities that can be done at home
- Brief overview and demonstrations of language arts components
- Logistics for the first day and closing remarks
Our orientation is very different this year. While we’ve focused more on philosophy in the past, this year your time spent during orientation will focus solely on what can be done at home and how. This event is not open to the public as it is centered around Ingleside activities only.
Please mark your calendars for the following events (some dates TBD closer to the event):
Training Events at Ingleside Tutorial
September: Parents Share
Learning from one another can be invaluable. Ingleside parents run the spectrum from new-to-homeschooling to having many years of homeschooling experience. The common denominators being that we are all journeying together, and we can all learn something new. This will be an evening of discussion. We’ll hear from other Ingleside parents on what’s working for them, hear and see ideas they’ve implemented in their homes, find out their most valuable resources, and ask questions of one another. The goal being to encourage one another as we build community.
Ingleside Tutorial exams are conducted differently from other institutions. As a parent, you will be asked to conduct exams at home. What’s the grading scale? How do you report oral exams? How do you ask the questions of your students? How do you know if your student is understanding the material? What do you want to avoid?
During our time together, we will answer these questions and more so parents have a good understanding of how and why exams are conducted in this fashion and most importantly, how their students are receiving and understanding their studies at Ingleside Tutorial.
November: Nature Study
Is a hike just a hike? How can one fine tune their senses to discover more about God’s creation? Parents, students, and siblings are invited to join Ingleside tutors and staff on a hike as we learn more about the study of nature.
This month is our Christmas program, and there will not be any training sessions.
