Hello parents!

Last day before LEST tomorrow!

Tomorrow will, of course, be a quick and fun day, thanks to Chapel in the morning, then 1 class, and a PEP Rally to get us all set to go compete to the best of our abilities from 11-11:45ish at Seattle Lutheran.

Tomorrow is also Blue and Gold day, so make sure your student comes in all their Blue and Gold attire ready to celebrate the school!

One final update from the Office in regards to LEST, as well.

February 11 LEST Updates


Cheer – Please note that the cheer performance schedule has changed from the schedule we sent out. The cheer and dance performances still begin at 6:30 PM Friday night February 14, but the Hope cheer performance is now scheduled for approximately 6:55 PM.


Dining – Concordia University dining information is attached to this email, which includes cafeteria menu and hours during LEST, as well as the coffee café hours and convenience store hours.


Student (and parent!) Care – You will want to plan ahead and be sure your child is well-nourished, hydrated, and rested for their competitions. The hotel has a full breakfast, which is one of the reasons we choose Embassy Suites. If your child needs more rest than the 11:00 PM curfew provides, feel free to encourage an earlier bedtime if needed.


Appreciation of Volunteers – During LEST, every single referee, event leader, and other person helping out is a volunteer from Concordia University. They are all donating their time to help us have an awesome LEST, challenging our students to do their best in many different events. Please say thank you and show your appreciation to them, and encourage your child to do so as well. If parents or students have any questions or concerns about an event, they should go to the Hope Coach in charge of the team, and then the coach can ask an LEST official if needed.


Go Eagles!”

In your Tuesday envelope today, an invitation to the Auction went home, along with a FAQ for of still needed items and just general information.  Also included was a flyer for a used bike drive that a current 8th grader, Spencer Mueller, is hosting.  Finally, a FAQ sheet/sign-up sheet for the annual Hope Talent show is included, in case any students want to participate!

I believe that is all I have for now, but I hope to see many of you guys down in Portland over the next few days!

In Christ,

Tim Allen
