GOOD NEWS!
Homelink is back for another year!
 

*The Homelink Learning Center is an"arm" of the S.H.A.R.E homeschool support group.
 
*You must be a member of SHARE to take Homelink classes;
however, as a member of SHARE, you do not
have to take classes
.  (Many have asked.)

Click HERE to be taken to the Homelink PUBLIC HOME PAGE, where many of your other questions can be answered.

heartPLEASE NOTE THAT REGISTRATION IS MUCH EASIER
ON A LAPTOP OR DESKTOP THAN IT IS ON A CELL PHONE.

New to Homeschooling? New to the area? You MUST attend this event!

The annual FHE Homeschool Resource Fair is FREE for the entire family. Note: strollers may be a challenge. Last year we had an estimated 800 people. So, we have opened up 2 more rooms and added an extra hour to the event to help with the crowd flow.

You are free to park in any of the area business lots since they are all closed on Saturdays.

Currently, we have 73 organizations including museums/educational organizations, libraries, support groups/co-ops, fine art programs, circus groups, homeschool sports, community colleges/trade schools, Scouts, special need resources, robotics, speech and debate, and so much more that provide you with resources for your families.

Also, each family will receive a take home bag (while supplies last, courtesy of Family Vision Library) loaded with lots of information from another 24 organizations that can't make it this year to the actual event but want to share their information with you.

IMPORTANT! While this event is free for all, there will be a donation jar at the FHE table to help defray the costs. Every dollar will help so that Kim can continue to do this for free year after year.

S.H.A.R.E. is an  independent support group founded and operated  by volunteer parents who home educate their  children in the Greater St. Louis Area. Families from  all over the St. Louis region and nearby Illinois counties are members of SHARE, although we are  based in the South City, South County and Mid County areas.

We are a diverse group of homeschoolers with a wide variety of learning and teaching styles. Some families are large, others are small; some are homeschooling veterans of twenty years, many are just beginning.

The majority of members are Christians and leadership is totally Christian; however, people of all faiths are welcome in S.H.A.R.E.  We are united by our choice to homeschool our children and give them the best possible educational experience AND by our desire to protect homeschooling rights in Missouri and elsewhere. 

Our main goal is to inform, equip and encourage families in their homeschooling journey!

S.H.A.R.E. offers many activities and classes  to supplement and enrich your home education experience, including an E-NEWSLETTER that is filled with both upcoming SHARE activities and other opportunities that your homeschoolers may benefit from.  Be the first to find out about such events as:

*HOMELINK CLASSES

*FIELD TRIPS 

*PARTIES  (volunteers needed!)

*DANCES AND THE PROM

*OUR ANNUAL ART GALA

*NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM (volunteers needed!)

*PROJECT FAIR

*GRADUATIONS

and more!

Bloom and Grow Speech Therapy

Do you have concerns about your child’s speech or language?

Does your child struggle with academics, vocabulary, following directions, or reading?

Detecting a speech or language problem can be tricky if you don’t know the traits of typical development. The simple rule of thumb is a language problem may exist if a child doesn’t understand and/or express what they want to say as well as other children of the same age. Research shows that the earlier problems are detected and treated, the better children progress and keep pace with peers in learning and social relationships.

Stacy Bick, former homeschooling mom and Speech Therapist at BLOOM AND GROW SPEECH THERAPY (formerly Victory Speech Therapy and Autism), now has openings to help your child with any concerns you may have from articulation, vocabulary, language, listening skills, auditory processing, stuttering, to vocal quality. She is offering a free 15 minute screening. And if therapy is needed, she offers a 50% discount to homeschooling families. Virtual Therapy is also available, if desired!

Contact her at bloomandgrowst@gmail.com or call 314-223-2289.

Speech and Debate Club

ARCH is an amazing community where children as young as ten can learn alongside seniors in high school. The lessons in rhetoric and public speaking will never be forgotten. This club is a must for any homeschooled child in St Louis!

We are a STOA speech and debate club that meets weekly:
South STL County (Rooftop Church) - Mondays from 2-5pm.
St. Charles County (Liberty Church) - Tuesdays from 7-9pm.
Mon, Aug. 22-1st Meeting South STL County.
Tue, Aug. 23-1st Meeting St. Charles County.
Club leader is Jeremy Zilkie.
(314) 489-4607

. Stoa Speech & Debate is for Christian homeschool students between the ages of 12-18.

· Students ages 10-11 can attend, but need to be “mature” in their educational interests and emotional development.

· The materials and concepts we cover can be challenging and require focus.

Since I work on the website many hours a week, I thought it only fair that I get to plug my son's business. Please check out his website by clicking on the image below. Or visit his Facebook page, Josh & Lindsey Photo. Of course he does engagement photos and weddings, but he LOVES the family pictures. Your children will think he is fun! ~Cathy
