The HRM Elementary Academy (8/15) and Super Friday (8/14) will remain open until mid August. Don't miss this opportunity. Some classes are already filling.

Fall Formal is on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at the Kingwood Country Club from 6-11 pm. To purchase your tickets, please click HERE.

To stay up to date on upcoming dances, please join the Kingwood Home School Formals Facebook page

Registration will be from February 1 to March 15. Testing will be the week of May 17-19, 2021, in the mornings at Kingwood Bible Church. The fee for the test, administration, and reporting is $60 per student.

You don't have to be a current HRM student to take the test, but you must join our website to have access to registration.

Parent Feedback
Many parents use this test as a tool to measure their child’s progress as well as to plan their upcoming school year.

Familiarization With Testing
The second reason to test would be to familiarize your students with standardized testing. This will better prepare them when taking the PSAT, SAT, and ACT if they decide to apply for college. This is also helpful if you have children with test anxiety as it gives them opportunities to work through this fear.

Acceptance Into The Home School National Honor Society
The third reason would be for qualification for some organization or club. The Stanford Achievement Test is an accepted test for entrance into the Home School National Honor Society. Our local chapter, Epsilon, is the leadership group of the CHATA service organization through the HEART homeschool group (homeschool-life.com/506/signup). There are possibly other organizations like this that might require testing.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Karen Griswold karengriswold@homerunministries.com.

Stacey’s Dance Studio is celebrating 30 years of business in the Kingwood Community! Starting with 15 students in 1990, Ms. Stacey rented space at a karate school and grew her business the old fashioned way with hard work, determination and a passion for dance. SDS started out as a hobby and a way for Ms. Stacey to drain her enormous amount of energy, it was never in “her plan” to open up a dance studio; however, God had “other plans” in store for her, she just needed to trust. “The greatest treasure I’ve found in teaching is the relationships I’ve made along the way not only with the students but also with the families that encompass SDS.” Ms. Stacey feels incredibly blessed to get to do something she loves, something that continually drives her creatively and a way to openly share her faith. Ms. Stacey now instructs second-generation dancers. “There is no greater gift than knowing you made a little difference in someone’s life enough that you are now trusted with their greatest treasure!”  This fall, SDS will move into their 20,000 square foot state of the art dance facility off West Lake Houston Parkway (former Kelsey Seybold building)! This project has been 4 years of praying, being still, seeking God’s will, and then having faith that He was going to provide. Ephesians 3:20 is Ms. Stacey’s go to verse, “For my God will do EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY more than we can ask or imagine!” To Him be all Glory!

Beginning Tap Dance (by Stacey's Dance of Kingwood) (Early Elementary, Upper Elementary, JHigh)

Clothing: Students can wear shorts, leggings or anything else that is comfortable and allows movement. (Dance attire not required)

Shoes:  Students will need to provide their own tap shoes.

Hair: Girls need to have hair pulled away from their face in a secured ponytail

Cost: $55.00 

Stacey’s Dance Studio is celebrating 30 years of business in the Kingwood Community! Starting with 15 students in 1990, Ms. Stacey rented space at a karate school and grew her business the old fashioned way with hard work, determination and a passion for dance. SDS started out as a hobby and a way for Ms. Stacey to drain her enormous amount of energy, it was never in “her plan” to open up a dance studio; however, God had “other plans” in store for her, she just needed to trust. “The greatest treasure I’ve found in teaching is the relationships I’ve made along the way not only with the students but also with the families that encompass SDS.” Ms. Stacey feels incredibly blessed to get to do something she loves, something that continually drives her creatively and a way to openly share her faith. Ms. Stacey now instructs second-generation dancers. “There is no greater gift than knowing you made a little difference in someone’s life enough that you are now trusted with their greatest treasure!”  This fall, SDS will move into their 20,000 square foot state of the art dance facility off West Lake Houston Parkway (former Kelsey Seybold building)! This project has been 4 years of praying, being still, seeking God’s will, and then having faith that He was going to provide. Ephesians 3:20 is Ms. Stacey’s go to verse, “For my God will do EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY more than we can ask or imagine!” To Him be all Glory!

CYT at School: Musical Theater (Early Elementary, Upper Elementary, JHigh)

Christian Youth Theater develops character and creativity in kids of all ages through quality theater arts training that brings families and communities together while reflecting the Creator.

CYT Houston offers classes in the Kingwood area on Tuesday evenings during 10 week sessions each semester. Students (8-18 years old) enrolled in classes are also eligible to audition for a main stage Broadway style production during that session.

The CYT@School program brings high quality theater classes to schools around our nation. CYT Houston provides trained teachers to bring dancing, acting and performing to Super Friday, along with teamwork and biblical character building.

Students of the Super Friday CYT@School class are eligible to audition for CYT main stage productions during the fall semester only if they pay the full class fee of $200. However, not everyone who wishes to take the class is interested in auditioning for a main stage show. Therefore, we are offering two different prices for this class. Everyone who takes the class will pay the $75 class fee. If your child would like to be eligible to audition for a fall CYT show, and you are not planning to take a Tuesday evening class in Kingwood, you shouldjust email me at dawnpruyn@homerunministries.com to be added to the Audition Eligible list, and you will be invoiced for $200 instead of $75. For more information about CYT Houston classes and productions, visit www.cythouston.org. If you have any questions about our class or the payment options (I know it is a bit confusing),  please feel free to contact me at dawnpruyn@homerunministries.com.

Class takes place during 3rd period Extended, and runs from 11:20-1:00pm.CYT Musical Theater will focus on all aspects of musical theater and students will be required to be a part of our end of the year production on November 19, 2021.
