From the Principal

Welcome to Hope School where we:

  • Expect every child to learn everyday.
  • Celebrate the leader in everyone.
  • Foster family partnerships.
  • Cultivate community involvement.
  • Inspire our students to have community hearts and global minds.

The Mission of our school is to provide every child an education that is academically rigorous, personally enriching and socially responsible in order to achieve their greatest potential.

There are many opportunities for students at Hope School. We are extremely fortunate to offer a FULL day program for ALL our kindergarten students. All children in grades first through fifth grade have 1:1 iPads to use during the school day for enhanced learning, extra practice, research and communication. Our sixth grade students have Chromebooks for the same purpose, in addition to getting them used to the device they will use their future education at Clark Fork Jr/Sr High School.

Our school’s behavior expectations all fit under the categories of Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. Students will learn about the "7 Habits" and the leader within everyone.

Please help us make this year the best year EVER!

With Respect,

Sherri Hatley, Principal

We had a fantastic first week back at school.  Despite the smoke forcing us indoors for recesses,  we still had fun building creations with wooden blocks, doing handstands, playing catch in the gym, or playing chess and building with magnets in Mrs. Hatley's classroom.   We have many new students new to our Hope School community, please welcome them all.  

Please join us on Monday, September 11th from 6 PM to 7 PM for our Open House, followed by an ice cream social approximately 7 to 7:30 PM.  We HOPE to see you here!!!!

Veteran's Day Celebration - November 9, 2016

Celebrating Veterans’ Day with our local veterans and students is my favorite celebration of the year.  My heart swells with pride to honor our Veterans who gave so much to protect our freedoms.  Today our students shared their gratefulness by singing songs of recognition and gratitude.  Our school counselor played “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes.  Our gym was filled with more than 20 Veterans, 65 additional community members, 110 students and 10 staff members. However, most importantly our gym was filled with love, honor and respect for these great men and women.
