Our new Summer Hours start today! Check them out.
School is OUT for the summer! Woohoo! Happy Dance!
You’ve all worked so hard this school year! You deserve a break. Enjoy it!
Don’t forget to Read, Read, Read while you are enjoying your summer break, on vacation, hanging out at the pool or attending summer camp.
See you soon!
Hi Lifelong Learners. There are only 6 weeks left of school! My mind is boggled at how quickly this school year is going past. Have you made your summer plans yet? Do you intend to fill your days with reading, playing outside with friends, staying up way too late and sleeping in until noon?
If you haven't made plans to travel, sleep, or game away your whole summer, please consider joining us for some fun and educational summer camps. A full list of camps, their dates and prices can be found on the camps page of our website. We will be learning and playing together all summer long. Hope to see you here!
Can you believe that Spring Break is only a few weeks away? I cannot wrap my mind around it. I know you’ve all been working so hard this school year and are ready for a break. We are offering lots of camps this spring break “season” and hope you will be able to join us. We say season because between the public, private and charter schools in town, there is a full month of spring break days this year. So we are offering camps for the whole month. If you’re a homeschooler, you can take advantage of any of the day camps we offer.
We are trying a new camp format for Spring Break this year. Instead of a week-long themed camp for a few hours a day, we are offering a full-day themed camp from 8am to 4 pm each day. Each day’s theme will be based around a movie, with a trip to the park, reading time, free play, and a craft included. Cost is $30 per day. Registration and payment is required to sign up. See the CAMP page on the website for more details, or call the office at (575) 208-6395 to sign up.
Hi Lifelong Learners! It seems we've had some confusion about our hours and we are sorry about that. I hope this helps clear up the confusion.
Our office hours are the hours that you are free to drop by to check out a book, use a table to catch up on some homework, talk 'shop' with us, ask for prices and make appointments, and read for a while with your little one.
Tutoring hours are by appointment and are longer or later than our office hours so please don't be concerned that if you need a later tutoring appointment we will be unavailable to your student. We make every effort to accommodate all of our clients' differing schedules.
Thank you for your support. We appreciate YOU!
~Learn For A Lifetime Team~
Here in the Smith Sisters School for Boys, we’ve got the January Blues. We are struggling to get back on track with school, our schedules, and life in general.
Aunt Kristy/Mama has been sick, missing several days of work, and even more of school. Aunt Jodi/Mom has been sick, missed some work and some school. Mr. T and a Slick have had trouble focusing after their Christmas break that was longer than planned due to illnesses. We’ve been a hot mess of schedule juggling, coughing, exhaustion and fevers. Everything has felt like this...
BUT... hope springs eternal, yes? We are closing in on our first REAL week of school since the new year started, the schedule juggling is calming down, and we are all nearly well again. Take that, January Blues.
How about you, lifelong learning friends? Has the new year been kind to you and yours? Are you chasing your New Year’s Goals with reckless abandon or are you still buried in holiday decorations, leftovers and wrapping paper bits? Does your student need some post holiday break assistance in getting back on track? How can we help you conquer the dreaded...
We are wrapping up school for the holiday break. Here at The Smith Sisters School for Boys (the silly name we made up for our combined homeschool years ago), we have accomplished 85 days of lessons, meaning the school year is already almost half over, can you believe that?! If you have a student in any of the local schools in Las Cruces, your child has accomplished approximately the same amount. Hooray for all the hard work we’ve put in already this year!
Mr. T and Slick have been hard at work this year learning the 3 Rs plus supplemental activities with “Aunt Jodi/Mom” every morning and learning Bible, Science, History, Geography, Art, Music and various other topics with “Aunt Kristy/Mama” in the afternoons. Both are thriving with working together, as they have generally been only students in their class at home previous to this. Jodi and I are so proud of their effort this year and can’t wait to see where the rest of this school year takes us.
Happy Holidays, friends! Enjoy the tail end of 2017 and call a hearty welcome to 2018!

This last week saw Thanksgiving arrive and depart, leaving the Holiday Hustle in its wake.
The holidays are upon us, friends. And whether you celebrate Christmas, observe Hanukkah, enjoy Kwanza, or you’re too cool for Yule, the holidays always mean an avalanche of extra events to attend, cookies to bake, and gifts to purchase. School is out, which means you might need to be looking for somewhere for the kiddos to be while you head to work each day.
Consider this a friendly reminder of two kinds...
1. Add a few of our events/camps for the kiddos to your calendar before it gets overly filled with other things. It will give them something fun and educational to do, and give you peace of mind while you head to work each day over winter break from school.
2. It’s ok to say no to things that don’t fit with your family’s schedule or priorities. Don’t be guilted into taking on so much that you can’t enjoy the holiday with your family.
