  1. I called the College Board yesterday and they said he is still registered for Aug 29 date and to disregard the email. However his testing location did change. Its awful that he has to get up so early, too early, for SAT test because the test is so long, I hope he doesnt tire out before the end of the test.
  2. Hello, Earlier this week, the College Board changed our location from a 5 min drive to a local high school to 45 min drive to another high school. Today I received an e-mail that said "changed location site" which the same school location as the 45 min location BUT the date changed from August 29 to SEPT 26! We signed up for AUG 29 date???? Are they changing dates, too now??? Anybody else having this happen to their dc?
  3. Oh, you taking Cipro? THAT should get rid of uts. I used to take Cipro but I startd getting allergic to antibiotics so I found alternative remedies. Take 1 tsp of D-mannose 3 or 4 times a day for infection. LOTS OF WATER. Cant stress that enough. I think you can take D-mannose once a day for prevention.
  4. i agree. UTIS are not fun. I use d-Mannose but I also use Body Anew Kidney formula. I use these 2 things and lots of lots of water. It works. Also, check out the drugstore under UTIS/bladder, there are some Cranberry drinks for utis, too.
  5. I found something I liked at Walmart, much cheaper than Madison Reed, that I used to use. I like it...Revlon Total Color Clean and Vegan Hair Color With 100% Gray Coverage. I found at Walmart/Target $6.99.
  6. Lanny- thank you for all your suggestions. They are suggestions for students who be motivated to study the SAT themselves. My ds needs accountability. That's why I am looking for a class. The only ones I found was Well-Traind Mind and HighSchoolMathLive class. He's had math teachers that motivate him and encourage him something I could never do for math. I have to outsource his SAT MATH just to keep his score up. He was supposed to take the June SAT but now that has to be August. Summertime is when he forgets math or it just goes way back in his mind. He is closed to getting a perfect score on PSAT in English part of the test so I do not need for him to spend so much time on English.
  7. I saw that, Alte Veste Academy.....I was wondering if there was more choices later in the summer. Thank you!
  8. Congratulations! Me, too! My one and only is starting his senoir year. Yep, I am procrastinating the counselor letter. But I did start it back in Janurary with just some phrases and words, no real sentences. Now its cleaning and baking all the time.
  9. Does anyone know of online summer SAT prep class, whether or not your dc used it. Maybe you saw it being offered while finding classes for your dc this summer/Fall. I am looking for one.
  10. My point was that Pa Evaluators are usually homeschoolers with a teacher certificate. Evaluations are a breeze. Its not like in Maryland where each county actually have public school teachers be your evaluators and you end with homeschool umbrella group for evaluators and paying over 100's dollars per year and now I am in PA and I pay only $50 bucks! I should have moved in PA sooner and saved so much money. I just realized that you are going under the "Private Tutor Law". I don't know how that differs from Supervisor's (parent) of the Home as teachers. I just have my previous records of elementary/middle school of what of my son did while we lived in Maryland. No one asked for a transcript for elementary/middle school in PA. I never did a transcript until High School. For 8th grade (when we moved to PA), I just listed things we did for the PA Evaluator. I didn't do grades for 8th grade except for online Math and English classes my son took. She looked at samples (1 from Fall & 1 current sample) for each subject I taught him. All she needed was that I showed something that proved he improved from the Fall until Spring.
  11. Oh yeah, don't forget fire safety... All home ed students are required to have "regular and continuous instruction in the dangers and prevention of fires". Most people interpret the law to mean that this needs to be taught every year, though extensive instruction is not necessary. It’s a good idea to do certain “fire safety” things every year anyway, like change the batteries in your smoke alarms, and review fire procedures with your children. Homeschooling High School http://www.askpauline.com/hs/homeschoolhighschool.html The graduation requirements include the following minimum courses in grades nine through twelve: Four years of English Three years of mathematics. Three years of science. Three years of social studies Two years of arts and humanities. In addition, at some point in grades 7 through 12, "...the following courses shall be taught..". Some people interpret the law to mean that these courses are part of the graduation requirements; others do not. English, to include language, literature, speech and composition; mathematics, to include general mathematics, algebra and geometry; science; social studies, to include civics, world history, history of the United States and Pennsylvania; geography; art; music; physical education; health; and safety education, including regular and continuous instruction in the dangers and prevention of fires. As with any other parent-issued diploma, you should carefully consider whether you will also create a transcript, portfolio, or other documentation of the student's high school courses, credits, activities, etc., to further document what they have done during the high school years, especially if they are applying to college or the military.
  12. Hi, We moved from Md to PA right when my son started 8th grade. He will be a senior this Fall. KUDOS for your teacher's certificate but it isn't necessary because there are alot of teacher's who homeschool their kids in PA and you can even find a teacher that supports unschooling....Just sayin for others are thinking of moving to PA. We are doing Parent Issued/ PA Evaluator Diplomas. I love my PA Evaluator - she is open to anything and your class for Global Studies is no problem :) I love the website http://www.askpauline.com/ for homeschooling in PA. "At the secondary school level, the following courses shall be taught: English, to include language, literature, speech and composition; science; geography; social studies, to include civics, world history, history of the United States and Pennsylvania; mathematics, to include general mathematics, algebra and geometry; art; music; physical education; health; and safety education, including regular and continuous instruction in the dangers and prevention of fires. Such courses of study may include, at the discretion of the supervisor of the home education program, economics; biology; chemistry; foreign languages; trigonometry; or other age-appropriate courses as contained in Chapter 5 (Curriculum Requirements) of the State Board of Education." English has to be 4 years-- Each high school year has to have English. That's it. Now you decide what kind of English (writing, literature, speech), grammar does not have to be all every year. You need 3 years of high school math. The key word here is "at the discretion of the supervisor of the home education program." So, World History can be anything do to with world history--- It's part of Social Sciences. These are general topics and you get to put together a class that has to do with world history.
  13. Thanks! I always wanted to see one of their Sight and Sounds Production. Can't wait to watch it.
  14. Thank you! I will make the change and as a added precaution, I am thinking of adding the College Board Student I.D., if you get it notarized it's supposed to work, too.
