For schools on a traditional calendar, student make-up days due to the missed instructional time because of snowfall in our area will be February 18, March 6 and March 22.
Students from our schools came to the school system's Administrative Services Center in the days prior to the Christmas break to provide special holiday music for employees, visitors and special guests during "Sounds of the Season" performances.
The mission of the New Hope Elementary School faculty is to teach for learning and to provide an environment where children enjoy learning. It is our aim to provide a safe and quality learning environment which fosters self-motivated, life-long learners who will become productive citizens and future leaders.
Alumni of New Hope School on July 12, presented Principal Harold Thompson, Jr., center, with a check for $2,100 to use for the purchase of instructional materials for students. Over 200 former students contributed to the donation during their reunion at the school on July 7.
New Hope School opened in 1954 serving students in grades 1-8. Several former students who attended New Hope in its early years attended the reunion. Former teachers and other school staff members also attended.
