Things to Remember
We hope everyone had a wonderful summer. We had a lot of fun here at HOPE Academy, but summer was too short as usual! We know this month will be crazy as everyone gets back into the swing of the school year. The last couple weeks of August will be hectic with public school starting on August 21st and the morning traffic madness. Things usually settle down in a couple of weeks, but give yourself some extra time and say a little prayer before you leave the house the first two weeks of school.
We are looking forward to Open House this month. The parents in the Monkeys, Bears, Birds, Owls, Butterflies, and Lions classes are welcome to join us from 6:00-6:30 pm on the 20th. The teachers will go over classroom procedures, curriculum, and expectations with you. We are looking forward to an exciting new school year.
DSS requires parents to update all paperwork every year. Ms. Sandy will have a new pack for you on your child's cubby soon. Please completely fill out the entire package, leaving no blanks, and return ASAP. We must have all updated forms back before the first day of school.
Material fees are due the first day of school this year. They will be added to your account the first full week of August. If you use the automated Tuition Express service, please let me know when you want to pay the material fees if it is other than August 5th.
