NOTE ABOUT CHOIR CONCERTS

As a reminder, with the schedule change this year, some classes are now half year (semester) classes. Choir is one of these classes. This means not all students will be a part of the Christmas Concert or the CE Night Choir Concert. If your child is not in choir and would like to be a part of these, they can audition to be in the “Voices of Hope” select choir or a part of the Gospel Arts drama team. Only inquire about joining with the intent to participate for the remainder of the school year. Please see Ms. Lachell with questions.

SIGN-UP FOR CONFERENCES

Conferences will be held on Monday, November 20th from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, November 21st from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for Lower School). Both Students & Parents are required to attend Upper School Conferences. Please sign-up by clicking on this link: Conference Sign-Up

Food Drive

Dear Hope Academy families. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for so many of us to celebrate and come together with our families. If your family is anything like mine there is no shortage of food on this joyous day. However many families do not have the same opportunities and the same food they eat every day has to stretch to make this day like every other. One of our students in the Upper School wants to help change that this year and she wrote a proposal for a food drive and wants us to get our phenomenal house system involved. Students will have the opportunity to bring dry good items like canned vegetables and boxed stuffing or cash that we will use to purchase gift cards to donate to families who otherwise would not have extra for this day. So if you notice your student going through the panty in the coming weeks or asking you for money for this please know it is for a great cause. There will be a letter coming home in the very near future giving more details as to how this will exactly work but we wanted to err on the side of over-communicating rather than the opposite.

Youth Basketball Coaches Needed

We are now looking for Youth Basketball Coaches for Hope Academy’s winter basketball teams (Kindergarten through 7th grade). If you, or someone you know, is interested in volunteering, please contact Kelby Brothen – kelbybrothen@hopeschool.org .

TEAM APP – Hope Academy Sports Schedules

Hope Academy is using a new app to post up-to-date schedules for all sports teams (K-12).  The app is called “Team App” and is available for download on Android or Apple devices (www.teamapp.com). After downloading the app, search for “Hope Academy Minneapolis” to view Hope team schedules.
