A Note from Sarah Donovan, Principal Extended Educational Programs
It is such a gift to visit The First Hope, The Classical School, and The Early Learning Center classrooms. Our amazing staff have already begun building strong relationships with our students and setting the pace for a year of growth. There are smiles, laughter, and learning all around!
On Thursday, September 3rd, I am hosting a ‘Coffee with the Principal’ at 8:15-9:00AM. It is being held in the E2 building in room 225, which is located in The Classical School. I welcome all Extended Educational Program parents to join me in kicking off the school year and spending time getting to know one another. I hope to see you there!

Note From Mrs. Grayson (Director/Assistant Principal)
Sweet Families:

What a wonderful week last week was!! On Monday, we started our 2’s & 3’s “School Family” Greeting Time. During this time together each day, we sang a “Good Morning” song, practiced our breathing to help calm our hearts, brainstormed ways on how to stay safe at school and most importantly prayed for our families and together as a school. On Friday, our sweet friends made Friendship Salad and talked about all of the important “tools” we need to be a helpful friend!!

I am so thankful for this amazing staff and for what God is doing here on this campus. We currently have over 30 students on our waitlist and ask for you to please join us in praying for (2) new teachers. We are humbled by this outpouring and are trusting God’s perfect timing.


We continue to ask for prayers for Ms. Gina as she is patiently still on bedrest awaiting the arrival of her sweet new baby boy. Please let us know how we can pray for you. We want to be able to support you and partner with your family so if there is a specific way we can be praying for you, please email me and let me know.
