A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs
Happy New Year TCS, The First Hope, and Preschool families! We are so excited for the blessings God has planned for our programs in the 2016 year ahead. Be sure to secure your spot for the 2016-2017 school year when re-enrollment opens this Monday, January 11th. There is a discounted re-enrollment deposit/fee during the first week to take advantage of too! All re-enrollment will be completed online via RenWeb and you will receive an email with specific re-enrollment instructions for your child’s program. Students may wear spirit wear for the next two weeks (Jan. 11th- 22nd) in recognition of re-enrollment too. Blessings for a wonderful start to 2016- it’s going to be a stellar year!

We are so glad to have our students back and can’t wait to see what God will do this second half of the year.


Inclusion 6-8 Lead Teacher

First Hope

We would like to welcome Mrs. Dana Spencer to our TFH community. She will be serving as our 6-8 Inclusion Lead Teacher. Mrs. Spencer loves working with students and has been an educator for the past 10 years. Dana grew up in Morristown, NJ and attended The University of Delaware. She moved to Orlando in 2003 and soon after married her husband, AJ. Mrs. Spencer is a proud mother of two children: Noah and Bella. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, exercising, and watching movies. TFH is very excited to have such a strong individual join us to serve our students.


Happy New Year! Fresh start, new beginnings. I love the new year it is like a clean slate. I hope parents you had a great break with your children. I missed seeing your children and working with them each day.
I would like to welcome 3 new families to The First Hope: The Richburgh’s, The Weinbergs, and the Lamoriello’s. We are so happy you are here and can’t wait to see how God will change your lives here at The First Hope. Miracles happen here.
