Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:
Grandparents Day at The First Hope
Mason Weinberg and his grandparents
Griffith Schrimsher and his grandparents
Harrison Talley and his grandma
Grandparents Day at The First Hope was a wonderful celebration of family. The lovely reception, photos, and opportunity for the students to share their classroom, friends, and work brought smiles to everyone. These are just a few of the many grandparents that came to be appreciated and to spend time with their grandchildren.
Program Support Coordinator
Jennifer Stilling is one of our wonderful Speech Therapists at The First Hope. Jennifer helps students develop their communication, reading, and writing skills through play activities, peer interaction, and use of academic materials. The goal during therapy is to facilitate student growth through their communication skills at school, home, and in their community. According to Jennifer, the best part of her job is the interaction with her students, as well as having the opportunity to share the message 0f God’s love.
Last week was a great break for me, spending time with my family. What can be better? Now we are back into the swing of things. It is that time again, our Quarterly Parent Conferences. We have had several days already seeing all 37 parents and reviewing the data of the changes being made in each of your child’s lives. Our staff are in prayer over these conferences and spend hours getting all the data and information ready to share in the conference. These conferences are to review the Quarter and progress reporting data. You can always request another conference to discuss other matters. We just have a short time to review the data for the quarter. We are winding down the year and are already having conversations about next year and what that looks like for each of our students. I love this part when I get to review each student, evaluating again their needs and struggles. I love to make those things better. I love the challenge to help a student be independent with different skills or help them with their behaviors if they are struggling there as well. God put me here to serve and I am still so grateful. Thank you for partnering with us to help your child.
