Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. – Thomas A. Edison
Hello HomeTech Families, In talking to many families today, we know many have left the area for a few days until they feel more comfortable to return. We want our families to take care of themselves and make both their physical and mental health a priority. It is for these reasons we are canceling school for the remainder of the week and hope to fully resume on Monday, September 14th. Please call (530) 872-1171 if you have questions or have students email their advisory teacher. Take care and stay safe!

Our 8th grade promotion and our 12th grade graduation ceremonies will be tomorrow, Friday, May 31st at 6:00 P.M. in the Living Hope Fellowship Church located at 355 Panama Ave in Chico. We are very proud of our students and look forward celebrating with them and their families. We do not have as much seating in this facility as we have had in the past, so I would encourage you to come early to guarantee yourself a seat. Please be conscious that seating could be an issue as you invite additional people to the actual ceremony. Promotion and graduation practice will be held for our 8th and 12th grade classes at 10:30 at the Living Hope Fellowship Church. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Thank you and have a great night!
