Dear Parents,

It was great seeing you all at our Fifth Grade Open House night. We had 100% attendance in fifth grade. The support for your children and their education is evident. Thank you for being this important link that ties us together for the love, support, and well-being of the kids.

On Friday, September 10, we will have our Fall Carnival. This is a great time for students, family, and faculty to get together and have some great fun and great interaction. We will also be having our annual Pie Auction that evening. I would invite you to consider donating a pie to the auction. This helps support our school programs. It’s also fun to out bid an opponent for the pie you may have set your sites on. Hint: My personal favorites to bid on are key lime, coconut cream, French silk, and apple pie. Please come and join us. Invite a friend.

Our next Starbase field trip is on Monday, September 13. I am trying to post as many pictures as I can on our Fifth Grade (private) Facebook page. If you are able, please go to see the different activities and things we are learning. Thank you again to our drivers for making it possible to get to and from Starbase.

Our first parent-teacher conference is fast approaching. I will be sending out a Sign-Up Genius for you on September 7. Please sign up once you receive this so I can confirm the scheduled times. Thank you.

Lastly, I would just like to mention that it has been a joy having your kids in class. Each and every one of them are truly a blessing. I thank God for them daily in my prayers.

Please pray for our Hope families as many are traveling over this Labor Day weekend.

In Christ,

Mrs. Kathy McIntosh
