HCA WEEKLY UPDATE + NEWS

March 10, 2024


 

Welcome to Term 3!

We are officially in the home stretch!! We are eager to welcome your students back this week and to get a fresh start!

There are several time-sensitive announcements listed below and as always, reach out if you have any questions! I hope you had a refreshing break and I will see you soon!

LIVING BOOKS HOMESCHOOL CONFERENCE!


We hope that you're planning to attend Awaken South Bend on April 12-13! This is an AMAZING opportunity to hear from all three ladies at A Delectable Education, as well as myself and Michelle Howard, founder of the Preservation Library movement (and a dynamic speaker!). Through April 1, they're offering a discount code to HCA attendees (AWAKENSB10).

To learn more and purchase tickets, please see the conference website:



 

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCE

Please take a moment to sign up for our last session of Parent/Teacher Conferences!

On April 3 + 4, students will have a half day and will be dismissed at 12pm (they will NOT eat lunch at school). As before, you'll have a 15-minute time slot with your child's teacher, and you can sign up at the link below!




 

NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY, APRIL 8

Please note that HCA will NOT hold classes on Monday, April 8 because our area is in the path of near totality for the upcoming solar eclipse, which will peak just after 3pm. Area schools are also cancelling classes and this is all per the recommendation of the Department of Homeland Security. Classes will resume as normal on 10/9.




 

NEW HOURS AT HERITAGE MEETING HOUSE


You may have already seen the updates on our social media platforms, but as of this past week, HMH is now closed Sunday-Tuesdays, so our current hours of operation are Wednesday-Saturday from 8am-4pm. Although we are closed to the public, you may still order school lunches on Mondays and Tuesdays!



 


GOSHEN CAMPUS UPDATE


Thank you so very much for your encouragement and enthusiasm regarding our announcement of a Goshen Campus! This has been in the works since the beginning of the school year and hours of behind the scenes work has gone into the plans and preparation.


I wanted to give a quick update however, as a new development with the Church arose this week (2 days after we announced and were given the green light) that has unfortunately become an impasse in our plans to move forward with Beulah Missionary Church. After months of meetings and plannings, the Church Board enthusiastically approved our request to open a campus and so we made the official announcement to all of you.

After receiving the official confirmation from the Board, we met with the Pastor last week, and due to some changes in the church's needs and preferences (that we were not previously made aware of), the rooms that they are able to offer us at this time are not at ALL conducive to our needs and actually pose a safety risk due to their location and accessibility issues. Because of this, we have rescinded our request to Beulah and regretfully, we will not be opening a Goshen campus in 2024/25.


Please accept my sincerest apologies; this blind-sided us as well. We waited longer than planned to announce the opening until we had a solid confirmation from Beulah. Unfortunately, the details were changed once we had an accepted proposal and we were not aware of that fact until our in-person meeting last week. We wish Beulah all the best and want to honor the work that they're already doing in the Goshen area. Unfortunately, we do not plan to move forward with this location.
