30 Sep Back to School For Fall 2018
On September 5th, young voices once again filled the classrooms and corridors of Hope’s Middle School as students got down to the business of learning. In the first weeks of school, students created Heart Maps and Dreams essays to get to know each other and build a sense of community. Goal setting helped teachers and students create personalized learning plans for the school year. Highlights of September include:
A visit from Maguire Scholars Coordinator Emilia Twomey to celebrate Hope’s nine students who received $2,000 scholarships from the Maguire Foundation. In a square table discussion, students shared their dreams and goals. They also talked about people they admired. Sixth-grader Jordan Charles clearly admires his mom. “She is an amazing woman,” he said. “She is a wonderful multi-tasker and a good listener and she is super independent.”
Speaking of amazing, four of Hope’s seventh-grade students entered the American Heritage Credit Union Annual Singing Contest. They took time out of their busy days at school to practice one of our country’s most patriotic songs, “God Bless America.” Good luck to Nahmir Butler, Monae Colter, Sincere Smith, and Meyanna Trice who lifted their voices in song to compete for a $500 prize for their school.
