Based on Microsoft Education Product guidelines, the NFS Board voted to categorize homeschool families as schools and to implement Homeschool Group Purchasing in May of 2014. The program goal is to facilitate access of in-classroom technologies for individual Homeschool families.
NFS Board “our organization is only four years old. In that time we have stressed moving forward to meet the technology needs within all educational venues. The first year of the Homeschool program has been a great success. We had no idea that so many homeschool families would participate. There have been hick-ups, our phone and Lab staff were, at times, overwhelmed by the response. For the 2015/16 school year NFS has expanded capabilities to meet the expected demand.”

Pensacola Studio of Piano is offering both preschool music classes (ages 3-5) and private piano lessons (ages 5-adult) this summer, and there’s still time to enroll! Preschool music classes are much more than just adult-led singing and play time. Your child will learn about different musical instruments, note types and values, piano key names, and more, all in a fun, positive environment. Classes each have only 3-6 children to ensure that each child is involved and learning. Private piano lessons open up the world of music to students using fun music books and positive reinforcement. Students will get a solid foundation in the basics of music while playing creative, exciting music that appeals to kids in the current generation.
Summer classes and lessons will begin the week of June 23. Please contact Krysten Skutt at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.facebook.com/PensacolaPianoStudio for more information about pricing and available lesson times.
