Hope Academy’s Annual Spelling Bee for grades 4-8 has begun! Each classroom has had its individual spelling bee to determine three winners from each grade. Those winners will advance to the school-wide spelling bee on January 22 at 3:00 in the Hope Chapel. The winner from Hope Academy will be eligible to try out for the next level of Scripps Spelling Bee in Minnesota.
It’s time to start thinking about the next school year!! Re-Enrollment will open on Monday, January 6th. Forms will be sent home with students that afternoon.
There are TWO parts to re-enrollment:
1. Complete Student Re-Enrollment Intention Form
2. Complete $75 non-refundable deposit (one per family, the deposit will be credited to September 2020’s tuition)
We will have a special Re-Enrollment deal from the opening on January 6th through Wednesday, January 15th. If you complete your Re-Enrollment Intention Form AND make your payment on or before January 15th, the deposit fee will be reduced to $50 but you will still receive a $75 credit to September’s tuition!
