Beginning of the 2019-20 School Year

We are off to a great start and enjoying getting to know all our new students and reconnecting with our returning students.  So many have grown over the summer in height and maturity.  It is always so exciting to see them.  We, at Hope School, are looking forward to making this school a fantastic year with you and your children.

Here are a few pictures from the first two weeks school. 
Each morning we start the day with the Pledge of Allegiance.

2nd Annual CFHS Graduates Visit Hope School

For the 2nd year in a row the current graduating class of Clark Fork High School made a visit to Hope School.  
May 30, 2019

The purpose of this visit is to show our elementary students what 'graduation' really means.  The pride and excitement is palpable as the graduates walk down our hallway and visit the classrooms.  A great part of their visit is seeing how 'grown up' they all seem.   Some GRADS have siblings and/or other relatives at Hope School so it is a very proud moment for those of us who remember when these seniors attended Hope School.  

The parade of graduates positively impacts our students by providing a visual of what 'some day' will look and feel like for them. The parade ends in the gym as the graduates stand in a receiving line and each and every student give a hand shake and some even get hugs - all receive a hearty "congratulations!"

The final aspect of their visit is of course the PLAYGROUND and the dome bars that they used to hang from in kindergarten.
