Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year!

Dear Parents,

Teachers and staff have been busy this summer attending staff development and training in order to better meet the needs of our students.  We are all looking forward to the first day of school which is Monday, August 22nd.  Meet the Teacher Night is Wednesday, August 17th from 4:30 – 6:00.  We look forward to seeing everyone there.  We will be scheduling Open Houses, PTA meetings and many more events throughout the year.  Be sure to check your child’s backpack regularly.

Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. with the first bell ringing at 8:05 a.m. and the tardy bell ringing at 8:10 a.m. School will end at 3:40 p.m. Please do not drop students off before 7:00 am as this could potentially present a safety issue.

The most successful school experiences occur from a good working relationship with your child’s teacher. Please feel free to contact teachers with any questions or concerns you may have. Teachers can be reached through email and/ or a message can be left in the office at 927-8180.  

A reminder that when coming on campus to, to volunteer, attend a conference or any other reason, make certain to bring your ID. Your ID will be scanned, and a visitor’s badge issued. We ask this to help maintain the safety of all children at Bob Hope Elementary.

We are excited about the new school year and look forward to working with you and your children.
