A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs
Joy in the simplest form of gratitude. We are grateful for the tremendous joy your children bring to our programs at TCS, The First Hope, and The Early Learning Center preschool. Sending blessings for a Thanksgiving holiday filled with love, laughter, and joy!

“I love that we get to help kids with challenges. It challenges me to learn every day, and I have a passion for seeing our kids learn new things,” says Jessica.
TFH is so blessed to have teachers who have such a strong passion for what they do each and every day. Ms. Evans has been with The First Hope for almost 2 years–this is her 3rd school year with us. Jessica is the oldest of 11 children. She loves being the big sister to her siblings and setting a good example–something she carries with her into her professional life and with our TFH students.



This week we were able to meet with my fellow TFH moms and review our program doing a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) Analysis. It was great to hear the things that are going well and the things that we can look at closer and make better. I appreciate all the moms sharing their thoughts, appreciations, and dreams for TFH over the next 5 years and beyond.
This past week we sent out letters to each of our families about our current campaign by Christmas to create a fund for families to be able to get assistance for tuition. We are looking to get 100% parent participation. Thank you for being able to help another family get the benefit your child currently has.
