DISASTER at the BEEHIVE - BEEHIVE SHUTDOWN UNTIL OCTOBER FIRST
Two weeks ago we discovered a small patch of toxic mold. We read up on the subject and decided to remove it ourselves.
Fortunately, my husband's schedule has been so tight that he could not get to it until tomorrow - the 18th. However, as
time progressed, we discovered more. Not willing to wait, I called a disaster company. They began the removal of the
mold yesterday, the 16th. They, however, found far more mold in far more places than I had and so,----our story.
Status: Two bedrooms, including the one we use for the office, and both bathrooms, and most probably the kitchen will
all be torn apart by the end of tomorrow. Then they clean it up and ozone. After they leave we just have to paint
the entire place with a particular mold inhibitor and rebuild walls, bathrooms and kitchen, including floors and clean
everything in this house with vinegar water and disinfectant. I am happy
to find what has been making me sick for so long, but not happy it is delaying the on line curriculum and the start of
the day school.
The 229 volumes of the curriculum took the worst beating. So did my computer. The paper of the curriculum cannot be
cleaned. And, since I am highly allergic and sensitive to the mold spores - they have already caused diabetic systems,
liver problems and shot my adrenals -well, I am not willing to gamble my life and save the curriculum. As my biology
professor friend said, "It only takes one spore and you can have a humongous colony within 24 hours." So, out goes the
curriculum. Fortunately, some is saved on the computer, but not much...so, this means we start over. Fortunately it is
all in my brain.
Watch for a new and technologically updated version beginning October 1st. And...
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING. I am signing-off until October 1, 2014. See you again then.

PARENT INTRODUCTON to BEEHIVE SCHOOLS -
Part One: WHY BEEHIVE?
Part Two: OUR DEFINITION of SUCCESS
Part Three: WHAT IS THE CURRICULUM?
Part Four: HOW DOES IT WORK?
Part One: WHY BEEHIVE?
Because there was and is a need. LDS parents want a safe, academically solid, and religiously uplifting place to
school their students. As parents looking for such a place, we found none and so created one: Beehive LDS Schooling, LLC.
Beehive Academy and Prep School, founded 1997. Because of the success* students achieve at Beehive, we
now share our curriculum and methods online.
Part Two: OUR DEFINITION of SUCCESS*
- Spiritual Understanding and Development - Acquiring a vast knowledge
of the scriptures, church history and doctrine, plus developing a firm,
unshakeable testimony of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost,
putting them and their priorities FIRST, at the center of our lives. In short,
keeping the commandments and learning to live a God-centered and God-directed
- Academic Excellence - Developing a thorough understanding of
Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Sciences (History, Geography, Government
and Economics), Sciences, selected Life Skills (Health & Fitness, Finances,
Family Studies, etc.), and Fine Arts (Art, Music, Dance and Theater).
Part Three - WHAT IS the CURRICULUM? - A Method of Individualized Education, specifically:
- A Lesson Bank of 1,000s of PDF lessons
- Seven subjects in 10 Levels, Preschool through Honors High School
- Gradually being augmented with video presentations.
- Subject matter not normally presented by public or other private institutions
- Sparks the mind, heart, and motivation of students to develop:
- a Christlike character
- a solid foundation of spiritual knowledge and understanding
- a strong testimony
- their interests, talents, and abilities
- and to discover their missions in life.
- It is a guide to breakthrough learning techniques that make greater achievements possible.
- In summary: The Beehive Curriculum is a vehicle which helps the student reach his full potential.

FROM the DIRECTOR...
The LIGHT at the END of the TUNNEL:
After 5 1/2 years, we are coming to the final phases of putting our curriculum on line in a usable format:
PDFs augmented by short video clips. We are excited about this. Most levels will be available by January, 2015.
However, there is definitely enough already online to make the purchase of the curriculum as it now stands very worthwhile.
MOST of the components that made the curriculum so super are now available on line. The Learning Strategies; the
Health Style, and the Religion Courses were and are the backbone, which made all the success in academia and other areas
If you follow what is here, you and your student or students cannot help but increase in Spiritual, Physical and
Mental agility and capacity. You may well be amazed at the results. We have been, as we have seen the program operate
in the lives of our students and others who did and do continue to increase in physical well-being, mental acuity,
spirituality and testimony.
FYI - Another great and worthwhile feature of Beehive Schools is our store, especially the Video section
which we dubbed:"SUNRISE FAMILY VIDEO II", after the Non-R-rated, Family-Friendly video store we started in American
Fork, Utah, in 1984. It offers you, as our store did, some of the VERY BEST in FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT, - decent, worthwhile
films, many of which are great discussion starters for FHEs. ENJOY!

- "Raising a Healthy Student" in the Teacher Education Section
