Dear Hope of America Students and Parents,           

Thank you for being patient as I waited for registration information form Hope of America. Finally we are ready to start the Hope of America registration process. They worked really hard at getting their new system up and running. They made some changes to what they did last year. There are 4 things each participant needs to do.  Sign 2 forms, register online and send $3 to the school for the bus.

I have attached the welcome letter and consent forms.

Hope Week

Hope Week is here! On Hats for Hope Tuesday, students had the opportunity to say what gave them Hope, and add to the chain. On White Out Wednesday, we heard messages from the band Foreign Figures, who sang and gave the students messages for a lifetime. Coming up on Thankful Thursday, wear some crazy socks and show gratitude all day long. Remember to write a letter to someone during Pack Time! On Friendship and Flannel Friday, don't forget to wear Flannel for Hope. Don’t forget, you don’t have to be in Hope Squad or Hope Club to be a friend and share Hope! Happy Hope Week 2018!

We have a message from our School Nurse, Aubrey Porter:

Dear Parent,

Volunteer dentists and hygienists will be on-hand to provide exams and perform limited procedures for qualifying children, and refer them for follow-up services after the event if needed.
To qualify for this program, parents of children between the ages of 5-12 years old who are also uninsured and from low income families must submit the enclosed Health History and Consent Form no later than February 9th, 2018. If you meet the qualifications, and would like your child to see a dentist at this event, please fill out a form that you can get in the school office, and return it to your child’s school as soon as possible, but no later than February 9th, 2018. The Utah GKAS event has limited slots available. Return this form as soon as possible to secure your child’s appointment!
If you have any questions please contact the school nurse at aubreyl.porter@nebo.edu or by calling your child’s school.
Thank you,
Aubrey Porter RN
