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.

Bike Safety.... Safe Routes to School and the Winner of a new BIKE!

Hope School students created Bike Safety posters for a ticket into the Bike Safety Drawing sponsored by Safe Routes to School and a local bike shop, Greasy Fingers Bike Shop.  Sophia was the lucky winner.  She will visit Greasy Fingers Bike Shop and get a bike that fits her just right!  The winning ticket was selected at the end of the Bike Rodeo at our 8th Annual Spring Fling on Saturday, May 18, 2019.   Be Safe out there and always wear your helmet.  















Books, Books, And more NEW books! KXLY, Disney Magic of Storytelling, N.A. Degerstrom

Every Hope School student received two books from the KXLY and Disney's Magic of Storytelling program.  We were sponsored by a Spokane business, N.A Degerstrom.   We would like to thank our sponsor N.A Dergerstrom,  KXLY and Disney for this incredibly generous donation.  Our students were able to select books that Mrs. Keibert ordered based on their interests and we even have a few books left over for give aways at our Splash into Summer Learning this summer.  It was really heart warming to see how excited they were to get brand new books they could keep.   A group of 4th grade boys each grabbed a book of the same title and sat down to start reading it together - like a book club.  It was so adorable...Reading for the pleasure of reading!!! Another group of 5th and 6th grade girls did the same thing and said they were going to get together this summer and read it.  Then later one of them said, "I don't think I can wait.  I'm gong to start reading it tonight." 
Below are some pictures from the book selection.
