Hope School Happenings

Hello Students and Parents,

We will have testing over the next few weeks and respectfully request that you refrain from picking up the students from Tuesday through Thursday during this brief period. Testing will take place in both Mrs. Peck and Mr. McKibben's classroom. Testing is an important time for quiet . Each student is required to have silence during the time of the testing. All necessary testing tools, such as calculators, etc. shall be provided within the testing application. Cell phones are prohibited during testing. All cell phones will be collected prior to testing. Each student will be required to power it down before we collect the cell phones. We encourage students to get plenty of rest during testing days and have a little breakfast for brain power. Please note to speak with your child about these points.

Our last day of skiing at Alyeska is Tuesday, March 21st. We hope each of the students have a wonderful time. So much thanks goes out to our community for all of their many donations for our students and to our Parent Teacher Organization for their hard work on fundraising.

We only have weeks to go in this final quarter. It has been a year of positive growth and new memories of a happy learning experiences. Lets keep that going. Encouraging words and actions always tend to bring out the best in all of us. Keep up the great job!

Community Nights at Hope School will resume next school year. Thank you all for showing up and having a great time. We have sincerely enjoyed seeing each of you. Tiny Tots will continue until the last week students are in attendance.
