Principal's Message

  • New Hope Family,

    As the start of the 2021-2022 school year quickly approaches, we know families are getting excited.  We're excited too! Soon, "welcome back" letters will be mailed out to those that have completed online PowerSchool registration.  With these letters, we hope to let you know who your child will have as their homeroom teacher.  If you don't receive a letter, it's possible that we're waiting for a teacher to be board approved.  For example, right now, we have two positions to finalize (one SPED pre-K teacher & one sixth grade teacher).  We also need more families to register to determine if an additional kindergarten teacher will be needed.

    Speaking of registration, we were asked to share the following: Snapcode letters should have been emailed to families on June 17 and July 12 from  If you haven't seen this important email, please check your spam folder.  PowerSchool registration has to be complete in order for our registrar to attach your child to a teacher.  Once this is done, we can mail you the "welcome back" letter and the name of your child's homeroom teacher.

    Our back-to-school NHES Orientation & Meet the Teacher event is scheduled for Monday, August 2, 2021.  Meet the Teacher is a come-and-go event...a time to meet the teacher, see the classroom, and drop off supplies.  Times are staggered, allowing for more parking and less crowded conditions. Meet and greet times are as follows:

    • 3PM to 4PM - Pre-K & 3rd Grade
    • 4PM to 5PM - Kindergarten & 4th Grade
    • 5PM to 6PM - 1st Grade & 5th Grade
    • 6PM to 7PM - 2nd Grade & 6th Grade

    Families are also invited to visit our lunchroom where tables will be set up with information about PTO, after-school clubs, after-school daycare, car tags, bus transportation, etc. Dr. Burton will be in the library to meet with families and share more about our school. Parents and guardians that sign-in at the library will have their name entered into a back-to-school gift card drawing.

    If you need anything or would like to partner with our school, you can reach me by calling 256.851.3260 or email at
