TK and Kindergarten Enrollment for 2023-2024

Do you have an incoming TK or K student? You can pick up an enrollment packet at Hope School  starting on 2/1/23.

We will have at least one K class, but TK classes will depend on enrollment, so please don't wait to enroll. The sooner we have enrollment numbers, the sooner we can plan classes. To be enrolled in TK for the 2023-24 year, students must turn 5 by April 1st. Please note, our district does not receive TK funding from the state, so we do not allow early enrollment for students turning 5 after April 1st.

On March 16 at 6:00 pm, we will be having a Kindergarten Information Night for incoming students.

If you know of any incoming Kindergarten or TK students, please share this information with their families. THANK YOU!

STUDENT NEWS

Our amazing Hope Student News Crew has finished another episode. This show is completely created by our 6th Grade Student News. It is fun to see how their skills are growing with each new episode.

REMINDERS

This is a friendly reminder, that after the 8:25 bell, all parents remaining on campus should have signed in at the office and have a volunteer badge on. Parents should not be hanging around the classrooms or in classrooms unless they are volunteering in the room and have signed in at the office. Thank you for helping our teachers get class started promptly at 8:30am.

Hope school mission statement

The mission of Hope School District is to develop in children the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to instill a lifelong love of learning and to become productive and contributing individuals in a changing society.

Measure J Bond
Measure J Bond Banner

The Hope Elementary School District Planning and Construction Management oversees new construction and modernization of all district facilities. The department is responsible for the district’s short and long-term facility needs, including enrollment and staffing projections to identify facility needs.

Through careful planning and support from the community, Hope Elementary School District has prepared well to accommodate the current needs of our students, staff, and community.  In March 2020, the Hope School District community voters passed Measure J. This $47.4 million bond will provide funding for the modernization of our facilities, including new construction at Hope Elementary School, Monte Vista Elementary School, and Vieja Valley Elementary School.

The first series of $12 million was sold in May 2020, received in June 2020, and deposited in Fund 22 (Bonds). The district must spend 85% of those proceeds within three years. Staff predicts all $47.4 million proceeds will be spent by 2025. Closing out the bond program requirements by June 2026.
