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.
Our Virtues-of-the-Month for June is Peace and Citizenship. Peace in the world begins with peace within, which comes by striving for and living up to our God-given potential. Becoming the people God wants us to be also makes us good citizens, concerned about our community and our country. Today we are in need of such citizens more than ever.
Coming up is our End-of-the-Year Concert & Graduation, to be held on Tuesday June 12. Preceding the main program, we’ll have a Meet & Greet from 6:00-6:45 pm at which parents may bring some finger food, preferably from your native culture. At 7:00 pm our graduation program will begin, which will be followed by our concert program with music and dance being performed by the students.
This summer please be sure your child(ren) read every day so as not to fall behind in their reading skills. Studies show that children who read throughout the summer are a step ahead when they return to school in the fall. Your child(ren) are welcome to attend our Summer Enrichment Program where they can receive quality instruction in reading, writing, math and study skills. In addition, this year we are adding a special Challenge Island portion. Please see Mrs. Gimay in the office for details.
Please note that June 15 is the final day of school. School will finish at 12:30 pm with no after care. You are also welcome to attend our Field Day events on Thursday, June 14, at Richardson Oval Park where we had our Race for Education.
We look forward to a good finish to the school year and wish you all a safe summer.
