Below you will find information about each individual class, will be able to download the Supply Lists, indicating the materials your children will need for the school year, as well as see some of the annual highlights of learning.

Kindergarten is a year full of firsts. After parents have been through the first tooth, the first words, the first steps, it’s now time for the first year partnering with a school to educate their child.

This is not a partnership that we take lightly. At Hope Lutheran Christian School, we recognize that each child is unique – a priceless treasure who holds much potential, and has many gifts that will be developed. We seek to work with parents to identify and develop these skills in students early on so they are set up for success in years to come.

Our Kindergarten program comes with many highlights. Our goal is to share who Jesus is as we unravel the mysteries of His world. Students are exposed to letters and numbers and have the chance to interact with others, and the world around them. Kindergarten at Hope is full of experiences, all of which point to Jesus. Kindergarten offers a stimulating environment where students learn through guided direction and through play. It is our goal to instill in students a love for learning, and a thirst for knowledge. Come and see our Kindergarten at Hope!

Another area of focus is in learning social skills such as conflict resolution and how to be a good friend to others.
