Our second annual Back to School Open House Event is scheduled for Thursday, August 29th 6:00-7:30. We have teamed up with the PTA to provide a fun and informative event for the entire family. There will be some parking in the recess yard and outside the fence. I encourage you to park at Hope Pond on Ryefield Road and walk up to the school. A police detail has been hired to assist in crossing Rt. 116. Please do not park at the Hope Public Library or in our Staff Lot behind the school. The first 45 minutes will be spent outside meeting one another and learning more about the PTA and other organizations including our after school care provider called Springboard Education. The Hope School Staff will be in attendance the entire evening. Around 6:45, families can visit classrooms. Your children will be very excited to show you their learning space. This informal open house format replaces formal presentations and encourages family involvement. Traditional open houses have been for parents only and bringing children was typically discouraged. The great part about our back-to-school event is that we WANT you to bring your children!
