Staff Retreat 2016

Staff Retreat 2016

Every year we gather as a staff a couple weeks before the academic year begins to debrief the year past, reflect on our mission, and strategize for the year about to start. Chris Westrate laid out his vision for who we want to be as an organization, focusing on five key words:

  • Empathy 
  • Clarity 
  • Quality
  • Vigilance
  • Witness

After four hours spent on the business of New Hope, Michael Hildebrandt joined us to talk about how we can more effectively engage our students, and went over some principles of Universal Course Design. We are eager to engage with our students and parents again this coming year!
