Home of the Knights!
This is Saturday, May 23, 2015
We are ready for a great 2015 here at NHE! Welcome back!
School starts at 7:45 a.m.
Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:05.
Important information regarding student hand-prints!
hard to believe that we in are in our ninth year of operation as a school.
Time has flown by. Since it's been nine years, it's been brought to
my attention that we are now on the schedule to receive a new coat of paint on
the hallway walls. The good news is that our walls will look much better.
The bad news is that all of our hand-prints will be painted over. If
your child has a hand-print and you would like to see it before it’s painted,
please come by the building between now and next Friday (May 7th). We are
going to capture the hand-prints digitally before they are painted over, so we
can always have them as a memory. If you had the hand-print done over the
last two years (2013 - present) and your child will still be in attendance at
NHE in the fall, we will recreate the hand-print when we return in August.

Dear New Hope Staff,
Congratulations on having the continuous investment you’ve made in mathematics pay off! Although outstanding CRCT performance is only onemeasure, your scores are reflective of a wealth of much greater benefits reapedby your students. Your commitment to deep understanding, diagnosis andfeedback, collaboration, vertical understanding, and professional learning areexemplary. We have frequent discussions with stakeholders in which we cite youand the manner in which you all (including your administration) have embracedbest practices and made them your school’s foundation. Thank you for all youhave done and continue to do for your students. We are so very proud of you!Hey, and nice job on the ELA side, as well. You are brilliant!
