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!
