Reg Kit 5 How Do We Create Community

  1. 1. How do we create community? We create community with Pulse Nights Pulse Nights highlights specific classes in performance and displays of their work three times a year. It is student led and parent facilitated. We come together because:  It brings HEART families together for fellowship and fun.  It brings new families for a sneak-preview of the different classes.  HEART families can invite their extended families to show that homeschooling does work! We create community with Pulse clubs The kids will be trained in leadership and servant hood skills with discipleship as a focus. Parents and students, if you have expertise in any of these areas and would like to be part of an exciting time, let us know by emailing us back with your particular interest.

This group will also clean-up after the event, put away tables, pick up trash in the auditorium, lobby and patio; check the bathrooms, clean up and return everything to its appropriate position. They will be called the Hospitality Crew.  Tech & Sound people usually enjoy the technical aspects and technology of running a program.

It is recommended they join the Tech CEO Challenge class with Jere Allen where they will be trained to put all this data into the computer to create professional looking publications. An editor will be chosen to pull all this together. We create community by performing drama presentations and musical productions Everyone loves a great drama! There’s something about this media that leaves everyone so interested. We seek to create community through these presentations. Drama productions will be presented during the Pulse nights at HEART Academy three times a year. This class will not require a lot of time and will be mostly be rehearsing during classes. If you are interested, please see your course catalog. For those interested in the musical form of production, this is the venue for you! Musicals create community in many ways. One way is through the interpersonal relationships among the casts and adults – we get to see the good, the bad and the ugly – yes, stress does that to everyone! Students will be rehearsing from December 2010 to April 2011. Please see your course catalog for more information. We create community by coming together for special events Touch points in young people’s lives are impactful to their overall friendship with other students at HEART.
