September Newsletter

As principal of New Hope School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year. Our teachers are excited to have students back in their classrooms. We spent all of last week preparing for the new school year by reviewing the Core Knowledge curriculum and discussing the most effective ways to deliver its content while helping students to develop their reading and study skills. We reminded ourselves that, above all, our mission is to teach our students God-centered universal values and service to others as the basis for personal integrity, harmony in the family, and peace in the world. We look forward to partnering with you in the coming year to achieve this.

This year our key goals are to continue to enhance students’ reading levels and helping them to develop their social-emotional relationship skills. We have action plans in place in support of these goals which we began implementing when we received our accreditation two years ago.

Each child is a unique individual. We pride ourselves on the opportunities we offer to help every one of our students succeed. These opportunities are included in our academic programming, from core subjects to electives and after school activities that help them develop their strengths, interests, and talents in many areas. We are always looking towards the future—and preparing them for what comes next in their lives.                                            

This work is not easy. But New Hope School is a community of professionals. We all—teachers, administrators, and support staff—collaborate in order to create a safe, supportive, and welcoming learning community where all students are treated fairly and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

As New Hope families, you play a critical role as partners in supporting your children at home and in the school. As a start to this partnership, we invite you to attend our Back-to-School-Night on Friday, September 20, 6:30-8:30 pm.

To stay up-to-date on what’s happening throughout the year, visit our website and Facebook page often, as well as TeacherEase, where you can check up on your child’s schoolwork.

New Hope School is a wonderful learning community. I feel so privileged to be a part of it. This is a very special place, and my colleagues and I appreciate the trust that you’ve shown us by sending your children here every day. We will do our best to ensure they have a fulfilling, happy, and safe year.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at rbeebe@newhopeschoolnj.com if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to a great school year together.
