Two weeks away!!

Super Friday parents,

Our first day is only two weeks away from today! Please read this email all the way through AND read the attached documents, lots of important info here.

Final payment for Fall 2022 is due today, Friday, August 12. If you haven’t paid your balance, you will need to follow the link in the email invoice sent a few weeks ago and make full payment today. If you have questions or need your invoice sent again, please contact Carmen at carmenkeeton@homerunministries.com.

Please join our Remind text group. This is very important!!! Emails are often blocked and we don’t see them quickly, so I will use the remind group to send urgent and important info. You do not need to download the app, just text @superfrid to 81010 on your cell phone.

You should be receiving emails from your child(ren)’s teachers this week, just introducing themselves and letting you know what to expect this semester.

Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions. The staff and I are excited and looking forward to a wonderful semester with our Super Friday families.

Registration Update– Please read!!

I am sorry to report that at this time we are unable to reliably use the website for registration. We are not willing to take a chance of lags, glitches and crashes that would be unfair and frustrating for our families, considering the competitive nature of registering for many popular classes. But, the show must go on and registration must occur! In the true IMPROVISE, ADAPT AND OVERCOME style that we homeschoolers are famous for, we have devised a plan that we think will be both friendly and fair for you, our beloved families.

 Fall 2022 registration will take place using a Google Form, beginning Friday, July 8 at 8am for current families. While this is obviously not ideal and it may seem a little “old school,” we have determined this to be the fairest way to move forward for fall registration. (Staff families who have already registered do NOT need to register again!)

 What you need to do:

  • For children age 7-13 as of 9/1/22, you will need to choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for EACH of the 3 class periods. So you need to plan their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for FIRST PERIOD; 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for SECOND PERIOD,  and 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for THIRD PERIOD, in order of preference.
  • For Early Childhood (age 2-6 as of 9/1/22), you will only choose the one class based on your child’s age as of 9/1/22.

On Friday 7/8, at 8am (new families may register beginning Monday, 7/11 at 8:00am), follow this link Fall 2022 Registration Form to access the google form. Complete and submit a form for EACH child that you are registering.  (Remember you need 1st, 2nd, and 3rd options for each class).  When you hit submit, a time stamp will be documented on each form. I will process registration, fill classes and create waiting lists based on those time stamps. Partial forms will not be processed, so please complete all questions before submitting.

  •    Once your registration is completed and processed, you will receive an invoice and must pay registration fees by MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY, JULY 10. 

 The big downside of this process is that you cannot see in real time when classes are full or available, which is why you must submit 3 choices for each period. Parents of several children may want to prioritize the order in which you register based on their class choices. Popular classes that generally fill up quickly include Duct Tape Warfare, Physical Education, Creating with Perler Beads, and Lego Robotics.  I will then get to play a crazy game of Tetris and create the best possible schedule for each child! If all 3 of your child’s choices are unavailable, then I will call or text you to figure out what they want based on availability at that time. If a class your child chooses is full and you do NOT have 2nd and 3rd ranked choices, your registration will be moved to the end of the stack, regardless of time stamps.  You will receive an email with your child’s schedule once it is processed.

 The second downside is that registration fees will not be paid through the website. Once your child’s registration is processed (Friday or Saturday, God willin’ and the creek don’t rise!), you will receive an invoice with a link to pay your family’s registration fee. FEES MUST BE PAID BY MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY, JULY 10 IN ORDER TO HOLD YOUR CHILD’S SCHEDULE AND CLASS SPOTS. Monday morning we will open to new families. We are working to have a fully functioning registration website for spring 2023. In the meantime, please know that we are doing our very best! If you have ANY questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to email or text me.

In His Grace,

Dawn Pruyn

Registration Delayed

The good news is that we had so many people online to register at 8am yesterday, that our new site crashed! :o)

The bad news is that we need to move our site to a new server host to be able to accommodate the traffic that registration brings, and that will take a few days. I do NOT want registration to be hit or miss, with some people able to log on and choose classes and others locked out. So we are temporarily suspending registration until the website is moved and working properly. No worries, we have lots of time before we start back up on August 26!

We will announce the new registration dates and times as soon as possible. Info will be shared through email, Super Friday News and Home Run Ministries facebook pages, and Remind text group. Please be aware that about a third of the emails get bounced back by your servers, so keep an eye on facebook and texts to stay informed. If you have any questions, you can email or text me, I am happy to help!

Fall 2022 Schedule Preview is LIVE!

If you are planning to register for our upcoming semester, make sure you log in this week and check out the Schedule Preview! You can look through the options and talk to your children about their choices so you are ready when registration is available.

Important things to note….

Early Childhood classes will be assigned on our end. You will just register your littles in the one “class” available to them based on their age as of Sept. 1, 2022. So if your child is 3, you will register them in Threes.

For older students, you can see which choices are available for which age group, as follows:

Early Elementary 7-8 years old

Upper Elementary 9-10 years old

JHigh 11-13 years old

If you have difficulty logging in, shoot me an email or text and I can help. Don’t wait until registration day. :o)

If you have an older student who took Leadership Training and you don’t know yet if they will will working/volunteering as an aide, go ahead and register them for classes. If we end up hiring them, we will refund any fees paid.

One of the awesome features of our new spot is the cart hold. When you add classes to your child’s schedule and submit the schedule, those classes will be HELD for 30 minutes. That gives you time to schedule other children and check out without fear of being bumped from those classes. YAY!!!

We will be testing and troubleshooting the new process over the next few days before registration officially opens. If you are previewing and you happen to see the option to actually add a class and register, DON’T DO IT. That just means that we are online testing, registration does not open until 8am on 6/24 for HRM staff, 8am on 6/27 for current SF families and 8am on 6/29 for new families. If you “accidentally” register before it is open, we will have to remove you from those classes. Sorry. :op

If you see any errors, glitches, or have questions, please let me know! You can text me at 225-324-7758 or email at dawnpruyn@homerunministries.com.

Lap-a-Thon!!!

Super Friday Lap-a-Thon to benefit out Scholarship program is happening tomorrow at 12:45 (at the end of our SF day.)

WHY should you bother with this???

Benefits to your child:

  1. Kids love to run around the gym. This is verified true by all of the adults that are telling them not to run during snack time every Friday.
  2. Friendly competition is a lot of fun!
  3. Free popsicle after the lap-a-thon.
  4. A wonderful feeling of doing something to help others

Benefits to our program:

  1. Super Friday scholarship program helps financially struggling families every year to be able to send their children to Super Friday! We love to be able to help as many as we can, especially during these difficult economic times.
  2. All money collected from the lap-a-thon will go directly to the SF Scholarship program.

Benefits to Super Friday Mom and Dad:

  1. Extra exercise will burn off some of that endless child energy and make for a nice Friday afternoon quiet time.
  2. An extra hour and fifteen minutes of free childcare. Lapathon pick up line begins at 1:30pm. Can’t beat that value.

In His Grace,

Dawn Pruyn

Important Policy Review

750+ Iphone Pictures | Download Free Images on Unsplash

Super Friday Families,

I want to ask everyone to please read and review our Technology Policy with your children who attend Super Friday. We have had quite a few incidents in recent weeks, which makes me think that maybe some parents and students missed this important policy. Please be aware that this policy applies everywhere at Super Friday, from the time that they get out of your car in the morning until they are back in your car in the afternoon. This includes before class starts in the morning, between classes, during snack time and while waiting for pickup in the afternoon. Students who are using their internet-capable device with permission in a class may ONLY use it for that specific purpose. Otherwise, devices must be put away and turned off, according to the attached policy.

For many children (and adults), having a phone or other device in their bag is too much of a temptation to resist. If it is not essential, please consider having them leave it at home.

Also, please remind all students 7 and up (NOT Early Childhood) that they are required to be in the GYM for snacktime. Students are not allowed to be anywhere else in the building (other than the restroom and/or water fountain) during this breaktime, without permission from an administrator.

In His Grace,

Dawn Pruyn
