The 2021-2022 Year Book

Once again, we are excited to partner with Jostens in developing a yearbook that will display special moments for all of us, including individual photos of our school family, as well as candid shots and amazing collages!

If you would like to order a yearbook, you may do so either by cheque or online at Hope Lutheran Christian School (please no cash). You may order your yearbook for $25. The deadline for ordering your yearbook is April 1st, 2022. Your child was given a yearbook order form today. Please complete the form and return with a cheque or go to the online ordering link and follow the instructions to order your yearbook. Thank you for your support in ensuring we have yet another amazing yearbook to showcase our students’ memories at Hope this academic year!

Parent Prayer

You are invited and welcome to join other parents and our school administration to pray (even if you’ve never prayed before!). Please consider setting aside 30 minutes of your time at the beginning of each week to join us for Parent Prayer as we pray for our school, families, and community. 

We will be meeting outside at the Elementary Campus by the main entrance. 

Every Monday from 9:00 – 9:30 am (except for holidays).

Open House

We’ve learned from our admissions interviews that an overwhelming majority of our applicants come to our school because of word-of-mouth recommendations from our school community.  We are thankful that you, our parents, are our best advertisers.

Do you know of a family ready to explore education options for their child?  Do you have friends or family looking for a school that offers more than just an academic education, one that you can call home?  Invite them to attend our virtual open house in January.

PTL News

Our next PTL meeting is Thursday, January 13 at 7 pm over Zoom.  Connection details will be shared closer to the meeting date.

At the meeting, the November meeting minutes will need to be approved.  Please review the November minutes in preparation for our upcoming meeting.  Highlights from the minutes include:

  • Update on the Hope for the Future Visioning Process
  • PTL Financial Statements and fundraising initiatives
  • Upcoming volunteer opportunities

If you have any questions, please contact the PTL at hopelutheranptl@hopelcs.ca.
