Principal's Welcome Message
As the principal of Our Lady of Hope, I would like to let you know that I am very excited and pleased to begin the new-year with you. I would like to extend a warm welcome to our returning students and their families, and a special welcome to all the new families to our school community. I hope that everyone has had a wonderful summer break, and you are ready to begin the new school year.
I am happy to see returning staff members and I extend a warm welcome to staff members that are new to our school. Our staff and Catholic School Council, in conjunction with Father Reitzel and our parish staff, will continue to provide our students with a variety of activities and liturgical celebrations.
As the year unfolds, let us continue to work together keeping communication between home and school open and honest. It is through this partnership that we will be able to provide the best possible experiences for our students, so that they may continue to grow in faith, character and academic excellence.
May God guide and bless our school community, and may Our Lady of Hope watch over us as we embark on this new school year.
Mr. Jim Vandenbosch
