PTL News

Community Relations:

Monthly Community Newsletter

Name our newsletter!   We are starting a Hope community newsletter published by the Middle School newsletter club.  Submit your ideas for the name of our newsletter to lklym@hopelcs.ca

The purpose of the school newsletter is to highlight the ongoing achievements of students, celebrate accomplishments and introduce one another.  The newsletter will be published monthly with a focus on getting to know a student, parent and staff member by way of interviewing or submission of a bio.  Students will be responsible for interviewing and writing the articles as well as other content.  

If your child has a special achievement recently earned or something you’d like to highlight, we are accepting submissions now for the September newsletter.  Please email me your story ideas at lklym@hopelcs.ca.

Going forward, a call for submissions will be posted at the beginning of each month with a distribution date of the last Friday of the month.


Wanted:  50’ Smart TV for Connection Room

We are looking for a new or slightly used TV to use in the Connection Room.  Do you have access to electronic discounts that you could pass on to the school?  Charitable donation? A tax receipt can be issued for the value of a TV.
