Click here to view next school year’s 2022-23 calendar! (A few things will look different for the 2022-23 school year due to MPS calendar changes and time needed to train our Hope teachers in “Teaching for Transformation” curriculum, an approach to faith-formation that we are very excited to bring to our students in the classrooms! Notice that we begin the year on August 25 with “Parent Kick-Off Night” for US and new families, on August 29 are “Meet the Teacher” appointments for LS families, and classes begin on Wednesday, August 31. Thanks!
