Hope School Happenings

Hello Students and Parents,

If you are taking your student out of school for traveling, Please do not forget the required paperwork. We will be happy to assist you, should you need help.


Recently we had a visit from Annaleah Karron. She is an amazingly helpful person with so much knowledge about education and programs such as CTE and Middle College. Middle and High School students can benefit so very much with these programs. We have links for you available here. We strongly encourage you to view the videos for the benefit of your students.

Here is the recording: https://www.loom.com/share/0b9eaff1cbc7477e95870fa3875c6e95

Hope’s PTO/Site Council meetings will be on the first Tuesday of each month from 3:45 – 4:30. Come join us!

PTO Swag

Swag orders are estimated to be deliver prior to Christmas. We hope the shipping works out as planned. Mrs. Jeannine Jabaay would be the PTO person who will most likely be able to give us any updates on changes to the delivery date.

Your Volunteer Status is key this year

We would really like each and every parent to come in and visit with their child this year, participate in field trips and help out. Please sign up to volunteer so you can come participate, help out, join in and make a difference.
