We said a fond farewell to Kim and wish her the best of luck.  We welcome Paige and Amber as part of the team.

Mara's Memos

We are looking forward to a great start to the school year.  We know things will be a little hectic for everyone as we get used to our new schedules and classrooms.  Thanks so much for all your patience and working with us as we all adjust to the new school year.


Picture Days are crazy days here at HOPE, but we sure do love those pictures!  The Tadpoles, Caterpillars, Ladybugs, Bumblebees, and Monkeys will have photos taken on Tuesday.  The Bears, Owls, Birds, Butterflies, Lions, and Horses will have pictures taken on Wednesday.  If you have a child scheduled on both days, please let us know which day you prefer and we can do them both on the same day.  Please dress your child in their picture day outfit and send a change of clothes, including shoes, in with them.  After their individual pictures, we will help them change into their play clothes.  Class pictures will be taken after all the individual pictures are taken each day, so your child will be in their play clothes for that picture.  Your child's class will not go outside for recess until after their individual pictures have been taken, so they will be as clean as possible.  We are usually ready to start taking pictures between 7:30-8:00.  If you have older siblings that you want in the pictures, or if you want to jump into the shot with your little one, please let us know and we will make that happen.


Normally, we would have special guests for our community helper week.  Due to Covid-19, we will ask for you to allow your child to dress up as what they want to be when they grow up instead.  We will still have fun learning about our community helpers, just in a different way this year.


Things to Remember

  • Make sure you have a complete change of summer clothes, including socks, in your cubby.  Keep a light jacket or sweatshirt in cubby year round.  Sandals are not recommended footwear.  Tennis shoes protect the foot and are recommended.
  • The credit card swipe fee is $1.50.
  • Apply sunscreen and send in a water bottle each morning.  We go outside EVERY day.
  • No drop off during nap time or after 10 am.
  • Tuition is due on Mondays.  Starting at noon on Wednesdays a $3 late fee will be added to your account and added every day at noon until the balance is paid in full.
