Welcome to S.H.A.R.E.!

Thank you for checking out our website!  

S.H.A.R.E. (St. Louis Homeschooling Activities, Resources and Encouragement) 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 but 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!


HOMELINK is a homeschool learning center that is sponsored by SHARE.  You do not have to attend Homelink classes to be a SHARE member!  Homelink is an activity just like a field trip or a dance.  All SHARE activities are open to all SHARE members, regardless of what learning center they may attend or not attend.laugh

SCHOOL PICTURE DAYS!

SMILE!

https://www.homeschool-life.com/mo/share/images/squirrel1.jpg

It's School Picture Day!

When?      Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 10:00 am through 4 pm by appointment OR
                   Tuesday, October 16, 2018 – 10:00 am through 2:20 pm by appointment

Where?     Homelink Location (St. Andrew Catholic Church, 309 Hoffmeister, 63125)

Who?        Pam Weatherford, Homelink Photography teacher and homeschool mom, will be our photographer.

What?      Here's the scoop on the pictures:

Pictures will be priced by the sheet and will vary depending on the number of sheets purchased. You may buy any combination of sheets you choose. A sheet is either one 8x10 or two 5x7s, or eight wallets. Families may add the number of sheets for all of their children for purposes of pricing. A single check may be used to pay for all of the students in a family. Make out checks to Pam Weatherford. You may pay with cash, but change will come back with your photos.

Pricing:
1 sheet $11 per sheet
2 or 3 sheets $10 per sheet
4 or 5 sheets $9 per sheet
6 or 7 sheets $8 per sheet
8 or 9 sheets $7 per sheet
10 or more sheets $6 per sheet

*There is no sitting fee.

*BIG NOTE:  This is NOT a Homelink event.  It is open to any SHARE member, regardless of whether you go to Homelink or not.  It just works out well to hold the event at the same time when we can use a classroom.laugh

**BIG NOTE: Due to lack of sales, we will NOT be having a yearbook this year. But Pam Weatherford has offered to still do Picture Day for those who like to keep a running collection of yearly school photos. As of this afternoon (Sept. 20) I have 1 copy left of the 2017-18 yearbook. Price: $10.00

***Pictures purchased can be picked up any Homelink day (Tuesday or Thursday) after December 1st.

How to make your appointment?
Contact Kelly Keilholz to reserve your spot. You can also find her at my table in the basement on Tuesdays.
Her email is: kkantiques@charter.net

When you email please indicate the following:

  1. Your preferred time and day.
  2. Your children's names and grades (or approximate grades). The youngest age that can be photographed is born. Your child does need to be born first.

Spots fill up fast...I wouldn't wait too long.
