Admissions News by Sally Heit, Hope Admissions Director
Welcome to the year 2017! I hope that you enjoyed your time over break with family and friends, and relished a later start to the mornings. That was one of my favorite parts. Now that the kids are older they sleep in (praise God!), so I get to sleep in too. For those not at this stage yet, it will come, I promise. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time together with good food, cousin time, and movies such as Rogue One, and we look forward to the year ahead.
As we start the New Year, there are some important dates to keep in mind. January 10 at 6:30 pm is our Preschool Open House. This is a great opportunity to invite families to check out one of the great play-based preschool programs in West Seattle. Children are welcome to this informal get-to-know-you session so they can explore the classroom and parents can meet the teachers and ask questions. If any parents of current preschoolers want to volunteer to help answer questions and greet families, let me know. I’d love the help.
January 16-27 we will open up re-enrollment and new enrollment of current family siblings for Fall 2017. This year the administration will be implementing a new online registration system that will allow parents to apply, re-enroll, and pay for school fees online (except for tuition). We are very excited about this new process made possible by K-12 Online as it will cut down on paper trails, keep student and family information up-to-date, and allow parents the ease of filling out school forms and paying fees online through our Webstore. More information about this process will come home in the Tuesday envelope next week. We look forward to partnering with you to make this new process a success.

Get Busy Cleaning Those Closets!
Did you make a goal to clean out those closets? Or do you want a way to purge those outgrown clothes? Why not donate those gently used clothing, shoes, and handbags to Hope Lutheran School! Bring your clothing donations to your child’s classroom between January 3 and January 11 and a special prize will be given to the classroom that brings in the most donations (determined by average articles of clothing per person). Labels are not available this year so be sure to mark your bags with your child’s homeroom teachers name and grade. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much to the families who sent in cards, treats, and other gifts to Mrs. Wallace, Mrs. Heit and Mrs. Okabayashi for Christmas. Very much appreciated and we thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.
