Thank you for your support of your child’s science project. Everyone made such wonderful presentations this week, rising to the challenge and growing through the experience. We hope you will enjoy our Family Barbeque today and the parents meeting afterwards by Dr. Beebe on “Creative Schools.” You won’t want to miss it!
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 Virtue-of-the-Month for June is Heroism. Our young people are in dire need of heroes—people who are willing to take on a challenge, often facing their fears and shortcomings, to do great deeds for the benefit of others. Heroes are different from the celebrities that our culture so much focuses on today. Heroes are known and remembered for noble and worthy deeds, serving as role models for the upcoming generation.
Coming up is our End-of-the-Year Concert & Graduation, to be held on Thursday June 13. 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. Please see Mrs. Gimay in the office for details.
Please note that June 14 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 Tuesday, June 11, 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 and happy summer.

“Rosa Parks was the queen mother of a movement whose single act of heroism sparked the movement for freedom, justice and equality. Her greatest contribution is that she told us a regular person can make a difference.”
