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!
LEARNING CENTER SUMMER SCHOOL:
Summer school will be offered through the Learning Center. We will be available Monday-Thursday from 9am-1pm starting June 18th. The purpose of summer school is to allow students to complete course work, recover credit for incompletes or an F, to raise their semester grade in math to allow them to advance (Students below a ‘C’ in a math course cannot go on to the next level), and to enter the new school year with improved skills and/or understanding of course material so they are prepared to focus on the future progress, not concerned with past shortcomings. It will be offered to students of all grades at a minimal cost. Please call or email Patti Hillier, Learning Center Director/Student Advocate, to discuss details.
SUMMERTIME HOST FAMILY OPPORTUNITY:
BRING the mission field to your home for 19 days this summer. Between 31 and 50 Chinese students will arrive here July 18 and 19 to enhance their English reading, writing, and speaking skills at New Hope Christian. They will be at school 3 days a week and go on some exciting local planned adventures.
Each family receives a stipend to assist with expenses.
Contact Diana Hale at 541-476-4588 (school) or 541-761-3641 (cell) for more information or to view the student hobby/interest forms and arrange for your blessing today.
WHAT’S NEW AT NEW HOPE:
Dear Family and Friends of New Hope,
What’s New at New Hope? The school board voted to approve new discounts that will honor alumni who attended and/or graduated from New Hope. They are…
- 15% discount for the children of New Hope graduates.
- 15% discount for the children of New Hope alumni who attended a minimum of two full years but did not graduate from New Hope.
I praise God for the board’s heart in wanting to honor our New Hope alumni in this manner.
Ernie Stone, Administrator
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.
