TOS-Crew News



I announced earlier in the year that I was trying out for TOS Crew. Well I submitted my reviews for that process and have gotten the word. I am officially a newbie Crewmate. I will be reviewing various products for the middle and high schoolers from different companies and sharing my opinions here. I am so excited since my oldest is embarking on his high school years. I am trying to learn all the ins and outs of this new venture before we officially start our Cruise in July.  I am looking forward to meeting my Crew Mates and making new friends.

I am spending a few days away to plan out our school year so I am not trying to do it as we go. I found out we work much better with a plan before hand then trying to plan as we go.  I hope to have our lessons planned out on paper at least and hopefully all plugged into HST+ or Home School Inc not sure which one I will be using yet. I may decide to use one to plan and one to record but still playing around with that idea.

Well enough rambling for now...reading the Cruise Handbook and so excited to do this! I am excited can ya tell?

Hi Mrs. Mandy!
I am a new crew mate also with my first one starting high school. I planned lightly for next year to avoid being overwhelmed by review products. I like your disclosure statement, I am working on mine now.

Hi Mrs. Mandy. I'm a newbie to the Crew this year myself! I saw you mention HST +. I *love* homeschool tracker plus. I think we're going to have a great cruise this year.

Congratulations on making the crew. May I offer one suggestion. Go ahead and make your plans for next year, but hold on to them loosely. Being on the crew has you making so many turns in your year that you may feel at times you are on a roller coaster. It's really a lot of fun, but can be frustrating if you are hard and fast on always using the curriculum that you had picked out. Get ready for a fun and challenging year.

I love your blog. Looking forward to reading it throughout the year.
