It's becoming a bit cooler as of late. Please make sure your child has a warm jacket, hat, gloves, and when the snow falls, snow pants and boots. If it is convenient for you, and your child has extras, these things can be kept at the school. Please make sure to label each item with your child's name.
Cooper Landing Community Library is open again on Tuesday afternoons, from 3-5pm, so that students have an opportunity to visit the library after school. The librarians look forward to seeing both parents and students there!
Winter Library Hours
District Office has instructed us that since there is no student contact, background checks are no longer needed for Community School activities. So when we get it up and running, you will not need to complete the check for walking/work-out, tot time, or volleyball!
However, if you are a parent and wish to accompany your child on a field trip (whether or not you are driving a student other than your own), you must complete a background check.

Hope School Happenings
It was great to see a tiny tot this morning at the Hope School. Watching the children enter the school after a summer of growing is always a shock for us. They grow so fast. That is one of the reasons we are always so happy they visit. It always them time to become comfortable with the building, the staff and the students. Our flyer is attached and we encourage all of the tiny tots to come back on the scheduled days and time.
For those who were recently hired by the KPBSD to work as substitutes, WELCOME! Thank you for being a part of the Hope School staff. We have substitute packet printed for you to swing by and pick up. Once the paperwork is completed, we will scan it back to District Office for you or you may send it in on your own. Just know that we are happy to have you and willing to assist you with facilitating your final step in the paperwork chain. For those who have not yet applied with the district. We definitely want you here. Please consider being a substitute teacher, custodian or secretary.
Thank you all for making sure the children have proper winter gear. I realize there are students who still do not quite have what they need. The rainboots really are needed this time of year. Honestly, this year has been a bit on the wet side all summer.
The Field Trip to Kasitsna Bay is approaching quickly. The students are all becoming excited and speaking about what the trip will be like and what clothes they may need. Our students seem to be very good planners. If any of you have questions in reference to the field trip, please speak with Dawn Hammond-Sammet at the school.
September 27th - September 29th: Field Trip to Kasitsna Bay Ecology Laboratory
Friday 9-29: Early Release- students released at 2:00
