Hope School Happenings

Hello Students and Parents,

Mrs. Peck's class is currently enjoying learning more about the Civil War. They are also learning some hands on training in the pottery class. Students are making some very interesting pieces of art and seem to be very proud of their creations.

Mr. McKibben's class has been writing some interesting and beautiful stories as well as poetry. The Alyeska Field Trip is a success again this year. Mr. McKibben and Ms. Dawn Hammond-Sammet are doing a wonderful job taking care of all Field Trip responsibilities. They smile so big as they head out to make the journey to Alyeska. Fun stuff!

We have particularly enjoyed our tiny tots days at the school. It was pure joy to see the little ones racing through the gym and having a blast. We appreciate the parents being here and taking advantage of the gym items and play area. Our little Hope residents are just precious to us.

Please view the attached Report Card to the Public. You will find much information within the letter including a link which takes you directly to the report card. Please see attached document.
