Mara's Memos


What a great start to the new school year.  Thanks so much for your patience and attention to details.  Everyone should be settling into a routine soon and the traffic congestion will die down a little.  Hopefully, everyone has downloaded and is using the KidReports app so you can get regular updates from your teacher.  Please let us know if we can do anything to help you and your child settle in here at HOPE Academy!

We are looking forward to Picture Day this month.  It is always a crazy day for the kids.  The Tadpoles, Caterpillars, Ladybugs, Bumblebees, and Monkeys will take their pictures on Monday.  The rest of the classes will take theirs on Tuesday.  If you have a child that is scheduled on both days, please let us know which day you would prefer to have them both taken.  Dress your child in the outfit you want them to wear for pictures.  Bring a change of clothing and we will change them after their individual pictures.  Class pictures are taken after all individual pictures are completed each day.  Your child will not go outside until after individual pictures are taken.  We usually are ready to start taking pictures at 7:30 am.  If you have older children that you want to have in the pictures or if you want your picture taken with your child, go straight back to the Tadpole/Caterpillar building and have your photo shoot.

We are looking forward to our Fun on the Farm Day this month.  Feel free to dress your child in overalls, bandana, cowboy hat, and boots.  We will have a visit from a petting zoo and the older children will get a chance to meet some real farm animals!
