For more than 30 years, New Hope has taught students ABC’s & 123’s with a Christ centered focus.
For the last 2 years New Hope’s enrollment has steadily increased. The enrollment has grown so much that two years ago New Hope expanded into a second building for kindergarten, which is known to the students as New Hope North. In actuality, New Hope North is really Apfel Funeral Home located just north of the current school.
Another challenge New Hope faces is the lack of indoor gym and activity space. The current New Hope building is several blocks from the Baptist Church and Cairo Community Center which offer their facilities for use to New Hope. In poor weather students must recess, lunch, conduct PE, music, and every other activity at their desks. It is simply not feasible to leave the confines of the current building to poor weather to travel to other facilities.
The New Hope Board recognizes that no matter how resourceful and resilient their students are the problem is simply a lack of space. New Hope will embark on the building of a new facility to accommodate their current enrollment and allow for expansion for an enrollment of up to 75 children. To fund the build, New Hope School is launching its, “Building Hope” Campaign. You can participate in the Building Hope Campaign with your donation during “Go Big Give.”
