An MSA-CESS accredited school, we help students achieve academic excellence and good character.
New Hope School is a private elementary and middle school located in Clifton, NJ. We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and independent character development by teaching God-centered universal values and service to others as the basis for personal integrity, harmony in the family, and peace in the world.
As we wind down another school year, I hope that you can look back and see the ways that you grew these past nine months. Think about what you learned and how you might apply those things in the future. At New Hope School, as you know, we are just as concerned about the growth of your character and heart as much as we are about your developing your stock of knowledge. We want you all to become good people that in the future will do a lot of good things to help make the world a better place. As the saying goes, “the children are the future.” You will one day be citizens with all the rights and responsibilities that go with it, and, hopefully as well, mature adults in your minds and hearts. For now, though, I just wish you all a great summer. Have lots of fun, and I look forward to seeing many of you again in September.
Thank you for your support of your child’s recent science project. Everyone made such wonderful presentations last week, rising to the challenge and growing through the experience. We hope you enjoyed our Family Barbeque on Friday and the parents meeting afterwards by Dr. Beebe on supporting your child’s reading.
As we approach the end of the school year, we wish to thank all of you for your consistent support over the year. As parents and teachers, we have a joint responsibility to raise and educate our children, helping them grow to become loving and responsible adults. In a world where family values are under challenge, this task is more critical than ever. Thank you for helping to make New Hope School a safe haven where our students can receive the best possible instruction—morally, spiritually and academically.
Thank you so much for your wonderful support of our eleventh annual “Race for Education,” on Friday, April 20, at the Richardson Oval off Monhegan St. in Clifton, We especially wish to express our appreciation to all those who came out to assist in various ways and cheer on our students. We are still heading towards our goal of $5,000. The school is very grateful for all your help to make this a successful fundraiser.
As for the race itself, despite the cool and breezy weather, the students did a great job completing their laps. We thank Clifton Mayor James Anzaldi for being on hand at the beginning of the race, despite his busy schedule. This year top honors for the most laps run went to 7th grader Areos Idrogo for 37 laps—a new school record! Bravo! At the end, students were in a cheerful mood as they returned to the school, celebrating with movie and popcorn parties.
