I am trying to extract excerpts from different pages and use them on the home page. The pages include a static html page, a blogging module page and a calendar events??

If you have a page called MypPage you could get the content of certain fields if you add this code to your Page.ss.
<% control Page(MyPage) %>
<% end_control %>
A static HTML page: turn it into an statichtml.ss store it in .themes/yourtheme/includes folder and use <% include statichtml %> in your page.ss
For getting content from a series of pages, start with:
- http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=recipes:gallery (you could adapt this for other uses as well)
I suspect that for the blog there are some other ways to do that as well, for example with a widget (look in the widget-section)
Now If you want to add next and previous buttons and pagination then you have to add more code and a different query to get that going, but I think you will have to experiment with this first.
