JR. KINDERGARTEN NEWS FOR THE 2012-13 SCHOOL YEAR:
We will be separating the Jr Kindergarten from the Kindergarten class next year. The options (3-day mornings, 3-day full day, 5-day mornings, and 5-day full day) will remain the same as they are this year for those students who are 4 years old by Sept. 1. We are opening up the 3-day and 5-day mornings options to students who are 3 years old by Sept. 1. The Jr Kindergarten class will be a great program for kids to come and have fun, learn, and play together.
Emily Dourte will be coming to teach this class. She has been working with young children for seven years and has her Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. She has about one year left for her Bachelor of Arts in Child Development and Family Studies.
She and her fiancé Tim Hillier, a New Hope graduate, are arriving in Oregon mid-June and will be here at New Hope with our summer school program. She would love to hear from parents with any comments, concerns, or questions, or just to chat and get to know you all!
All lunch accounts must be kept current with available monies in order for students to continue purchasing lunches.
AFTER SCHOOL SUPERVISION:
No students or siblings may be on campus after 3:30pm unless it is for a school sponsored activity. Only students involved in a school sponsored activity, such as athletes at after school practice, are covered by our liability insurance. All non-athletes should be picked up after school or be under parent supervision if here at school. (The exception to this policy is carpoolers living out of the area or those who simply cannot make more than one trip to the school. We will let those students study in the cafeteria until the practice is over.) After an activity or practice, student(s) must wait in the cafeteria. Thank you for your cooperation.
