Kids at Hope Day/Week 2018
November 12-16, 2018

2018 Theme: A CULTURE of HOPE

The power behind Kids at Hope is its cultural strategy.

Rather than advance KAH within a program or curriculum, KAH is unleashed by harnessing the power of WE. It is the WE rather than the ME that can reach all children and youth with a message and strategy that demonstrates how all kids are capable of success, No Exceptions!! It is the WE that represents culture.

For KAH to work best and most effectively the village and all villagers need to be part of, rather than a part from, the three Universal Truths which define KAH:

BELIEVE
CONNECT
TIME TRAVEL

Show us how your school, organization, department, agency or community is encouraging everyone to see every kid as AT HOPE and how your team is using BELIEVE-CONNECT-TIME TRAVEL as part of your overall strategy.

Keep in mind the ME can only reach some kids. It is the WE that can reach all kids!

Northport Celebration For School Improvement Goal!

Northport Celebration For School Improvement Goal!

This year, as part of our Northport School Improvement Plan, one of our important goals is to raise attendance rates. We are determined to get our students into school so that our achievement levels will rise. We celebrated with a popcorn and movie party today with parties for grades 3 through 8 for all students who earned Perfect Attendance for the first quarter. We are proud to report that at this time we have raised our attendance levels significantly. This is awesome! Next quarter, students will celebrate with a school dance. This is an even better encouragement. Thank you to all parents who are helping us achieve our goals and get the students in their seats to learn. We LOVE you for that!
