Last week we were talking about how great the weather was --- not so much the last few days...But we always can use the rain!
I continue to be in awe watching our students in the classrooms --- students are engaged and anxious to learn. The end of the 9 week grading period is right around the corner (October 21st). Please ensure your student remains focused in the classroom. We just finished a NED presentation for the K-5 students. They learned that NED stands for Never give-up; Encourage others; and Do your best. The students were very attentive and considerate during the presentation.
This week is our Homecoming/Spirit Week. It's exciting to watch the students dress up on their different themed clothes days. Penny Wars is also on-going for K-8. The New Hope King and Queen and their court will be announced before the Varsity Volleyball game this coming Friday.
A Reminder: Terra Nova 3 pre-testing will be conducted for grades 2-9 during the week of October 10th.
A Reminder: For seniors --- if you have not taken an ACT, you should plan on taking the test October 22nd. If you missed the registration deadline, then the next one is December 10th. The next SAT test date is tomorrow, October 1. The next SAT after that is November 5th. Remind your student to put down NHCA’s college board code which is 365323 --- we will as well.
Decision America: On October 6th, Franklin Graham will be in Columbus for a Prayer Rally. If you as a parent or guardian would like to attend with your child, New Hope fully supports your desire to take your child to the rally. Further details can be found at https://decisionamericatour.com/.

“The Statesmen 5 “C’s” to Success: Christlikeness; Community; Creativity; Collaboration; and Critical Thinking” --- all with the Biblical underpinning. We are starting the year with Christlikeness…Our Scripture Theme for this year is Philippians 1: 1-2.
“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." Philippians 1: 1-4
