A MESSAGE FROM SARAH DONOVAN, DIRECTOR OF THE EXTENDED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

“Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.” This mantra from my Girl Scout days reminds me of the cycle of admissions. Our doors are open to serving new families academically and spiritually, always. There is something just as special as seeing a family return to our programs. Both are gold to us! During re-enrollment, I wake up in the early hours every day to see who is returning to our school family. It is truly such an exciting time! Serving the students and families at TFA’s Extended Educational Programs is truly a calling and I am honored at the privilege of continuing to serve you all during the upcoming school year.

CLASS AND STUDENT SPOTLIGHTS

**ALUMNI REPORT**

Emmalee graduates 2014

Acceptance to Valencia College

Emmalee started at The First Hope the very first year we opened in 2009.  She was here for 5 years until she graduated in 2014 with a Special Diploma.  The last year or so before she graduated we helped her study for the GED.  She passed it about a year later.  We just received the best news she has now been accepted to Valencia College. There are NO LIMITS!  Congratulations Emmalee for a job well done!

STAFF SPOTLIGHT

She said YES!

Nima Nasser, Para-Professional for our Inclusion 6-8th grade class asked his girlfriend to marry him.  He tells us, “On October 2nd we began dating and for 1 year, 3 months, 4days ago, 17 hours, 35 minutes, 5 seconds she was my girlfriend.” Now she is his fiance.  They went on a trip to Israel where he surprised her and he proposed by the Sea of Galilee. Congrats Nima and Tabitha!

PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

I wanted to tell each and every parent… Thank You!

Thank you for allowing our staff to care and love on your children.

Thank you for all the hard work you do with them every day.  We notice.

Thank you for partnering with us.

Thank you for all the sacrifices you give each day for your child to be here.

I am humbled that year after year God has chosen each of my staff and myself to be a part of your child’s growth.  I pray every day He keeps leading us to help them a little more every single day.

Thank you!
