Writing – Ann Newcomer

Ann Newcomer will be teaching a writing class for students entering grades 9-12  for the 2022/2023 school year.  The class will focus on helping students understand and practice four different styles of writing: expository, descriptive, persuasive, and narrative.  Within those styles, students will practice different forms of writing, which may include essays, stories, journalistic writing, poetry, etc.  

The class will meet once per week in the later afternoon on Tuesday or Thursday for 1.25 to 1.5 hours, depending on the size of the class.  The cost of the class will be $10 to $15.

Please email Ann ( to sign up for the class.

Classical Conversations

Classical Conversations is a community that meets weekly to encourage a Christian Classical education. Foundations (ages 4-12) outlines a comprehensive core of the grammar for history, science, English, Latin, geography, and math that kids will revisit in the higher grade levels. This program helps guide the parents as they teach their children at home.  They will also participate in weekly public speaking, science projects or experiments, art or music activities, building a firm foundation for a rich education. Essentials (ages 9-12) teaches the basis of the English language. Students will learn the structure for the English language, write a paper each week with IEW and present their paper to their class, and play mental math games. Challenge A, B, 1 & 2 (ages 12 and up) are rigorous programs to train students to take ownership of their education. They will have accountability to complete their assignments so that they can actively participate in class. Students will be challenged to draw the world or body system by memory, participate in a science fair or mock trial.
