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 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).

PTL News

Coffee Fellowships

Another Coffee Fellowship will be held for all parents this Friday at the Elementary Campus. It was so great to connect with parents at our previous coffee time.  We hope you can join us again where we will be joined by Board members and staff to connect and discuss the Ignite stories that have been recently published.  This is an opportunity for you to provide input and feedback on the future of Hope Lutheran Church and School.  Have your say in how we plan for our future.

A coffee time will also be held on November 25th.

Advent Calendar Donations

Each family should have received a message from their homeroom teacher about requested craft donations for the Bethlehem Walk Advent Calendar.  Parents can claim 1 hour of participation time for each $10 spent, or as outlined in your signup sheet.

School Facilities Maintenance Committee

A reminder to parents that there are still vacancies on this committee.  If you have ideas for maintenance/repair or improvements to our building and would like to serve our school in this way, please contact Mr. Lok at jlok@hopelcs.ca.  Time spent counts towards the Parent Participation Program.

Also, if you have experience in drainage, we’d like to hear from you.  There is a low area in our breezeway area that we would like to see fixed so the water doesn’t pool.

An ongoing list of volunteer opportunities can be found here:  2021-22 Volunteer Opportunities  

Parent Information Sessions

The PTL would like to provide parents with speaker sessions on topics that interest you or to help better equip you in raising your children.  Is there a topic that you would like to know more about, such as technology, parenting, family budgets, wills & estate planning?   These sessions could be over Zoom or during an in-person evening.  Please let the PTL know by emailing us at hopelutheranptl@hopelcs.ca

Christmas Hamper Drive

Our annual Christmas Hamper drive starts today!  This year we have included all items on one spreadsheet for ease of contribution:  Christmas Hamper requested items

In the spirit of giving, each year some families who could use some support over the holidays are identified within our own Hope community. To respect these families’ privacy, only Mr. Lok knows their identity. 

Collection boxes are outside each Elementary classroom and the Middle school students can contribute to a collection box outside their campus office.

  • On the donations spreadsheet, please put your name beside the items that you are providing.  
  • Donations of cash & gift cards can be taken to the school office for safekeeping.
  • Contributions are voluntary; parent participation hours are not given for these donations.
  • For health and safety reasons please ensure all donated items are new and unwrapped. (If a food item, please ensure it is not past expiry date). 
  • Starting on Monday, November 15, Christmas wrapped collection boxes will be placed in each classroom for Kindergarten through Grade 5, and if you are at the Middle School Campus, please place your items in the boxes outside the office. 
  • Donations will be collected for 2 weeks – Monday, November 15 until Monday, November 29, 2021. 

Thank you for your help & support.  If you have any questions, please contact the PTL at hopelutheranptl@hopelcs.ca
