THE SECRET LIFE OF HOMESCHOOLERS
Many people make the assumption that homeschoolers spend their time sitting around in their pajamas, playing video games, avoiding social interaction—doing basically anything but their schoolwork. The stereotype is amusing and extreme, and (mostly) unfounded. While it may be true that homeschoolers have more free time, they certainly don’t rest idle.

Today on Wellsboro Home Page, we talked to a number of homeschoolers about what they enjoy most about homeschooling, opportunities that have resulted through this mode of education, and how they feel it has prepared them for life after high school. By far, the greatest asset to the students seemed to be the flexibility of their time.

THE SAE OF WAHS
Students in Wellsboro Area High School are using their skills outside of the classroom in outstanding ways. This is through their own individual S-A-E. SAE stands for Supervised Agricultural Experience. The main purpose of an SAE is to give students hands-on experience in an area that interests them. Therefore, each SAE is unique to each student. The four most basic categories are Entrepreneurship, Placement, Exploratory, and Research. Students record their hours and log them in online, and have opportunities receive awards and grants. Plus, they have fun doing it!

DECORATING DECODED – THE CLUE TO WINDOW COVERINGS
Now I would like to share a designer trick with you. Have you ever wished that you could make your windows taller or wider than they are and make a grander statement or just let more light in? The secret is where you mount the curtain rod on the wall.

To make your windows appear taller, hang the rod 4 to 6 inches above the window frame. Make sure your drapes are long enough or they will look like flood pants! If you extend the rod 3 to 6 inches beyond the frame on either side, the window appears wider and will allow more light in because the fabric is hanging against the wall instead of the glass. This also helps keep light out when the drapes are drawn shut. You can use either of these techniques alone or combine them to create statement making windows.

FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD – MYSTERY MILK
When most people think of milk, they think of calcium, protein, cows, the liquid you pour on your cereal for breakfast…but there’s more milk choices than just what we can get from our dairy friends. Today’s featured milk alternative comes with some special benefits as well!

If you’d like to compare a milk alternative’s nutrition information with that of diary milk, there’s a great resource available: the food-a-pedia on ChooseMyPlate.gov. Simply look up the foods you want and this website allows you to compare them, side by side.

There are a number of reasons for choosing to drink alternative milk. It’s great for those who are lactose intolerant, vegan or if you simply enjoy trying new foods! Try out this recipe featured in today’s video: Mystery Milk Strawberry Smoothie!
