Introducing our New Board of Directors

Our theme for Hope Ministries this year is “New Beginnings.” There are many areas of ministry that will be new for us this coming year. We are praying to construct new cottages both in Tampa as well as Honduras.  We will receive many new children into our care this year that will have a new beginning in their lives.  We have been blessed with new staff, and we are excited to announce a new Board of Directors for Hope International Ministries.

Spirit Week at our School

One of the highlights of the school year for the children is “Spirit Week.” These five days, the students dress up in different crazy ways to show their school spirit for our boys’ and girls’ basketball teams. For each “Spirit Day,” the classes go all out, and even the teachers get involved! Spirit Week ends with a big pep rally to support our teams and announce the winners for each spirit day that were the best dressed and most creative.

The theme days this year are:
Day 1: Crazy Mismatch Day – Dress totally crazy!
Day 2: Twin Day – Choose one or more friends and dress alike.
Day 3: Dynamic Duo Day – Choose a friend and dress like a famous pair.
(Batman and Robin, Salt and Pepper, Fred and Wilma…you get the idea!)
Day 4: Throwback Thursday – Pick an era and dress up like they did then.
Day 5: Extreme Blue & White Day – Go nuts wearing our school colors!

We are proud of our school and basketball teams for their godly testimony and hard work.  If you live in the area, check our Basketball Schedule, and come out and support the Hope Eagles! To see pictures of the children from Spirit week, visit our Facebook Page.
