We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Hope Area Community Foundation for their generous donation to our school archery program. With their help, we were able to purchase two block targets and a box of arrows to help our archers get more practice time in the gym. We are very fortunate to be part of a wonderful community that helps our students get more opportunities in our school.

PreK-6th grade students at Hope-Page Elementary recently became heart heroes in the Kids Heart Challenge (formerly known as Jump Rope for Heart). This year’s theme was Superheroes and the students at Hope-Page proved they were just that. All 105 students were challenged to raise at least $1, and they all succeeded. A total of $5,870.96 was raised by students! Kids Heart Challenge was held in November this year with the hope that it would not be cancelled because of the pandemic. Students kicked off the Heart Challenge the beginning of November and wrapped up their fundraising with an assembly in December. Student incentives this year consisted of a variety of thank-you gifts from the American Heart Association, as well as some extra incentives from the school. Students who raised $100 were able to pick a staff member to wear a costume for an hour. For every $100 a student raised they could pick a different person. Costumes included Big Bird, Willy Wonka, Thing 1, a grape and a Happy Heart. A total of 32 hours were spent in costume for the staff at Hope-Page Elementary. The class who raised the most money per student were awarded a “Mystery Party” for their classroom. This year's top class was the 3rd grade! The top fundraiser was awarded with a mystery! On the day of the assembly the top fundraiser picked 1 of 3 “mystery” envelopes. Each envelope consisted of a different incentive 1) sliming a staff member 2) throwing a pie in a staff member face or 3) shaving Mike Kingston’s head. The top fundraiser was Kindergarten student Cam Heidorn. Cam raised $367 and chose his envelope wisely. After selecting the mystery prize Cam opened it up to find he got to shave Mike’s head! Great job Cam and thanks Mike! It is always amazing to see the support and kindness provided during our fundraising, but this year, with everything else that is happening it is heartwarming to see what can happen when our kids come together!

North Dakota has a new accountability system reported through NDInsights, more commonly referred to as the “Dashboard.” The Dashboard contains reports that display the performance of school districts, schools, and student groups on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, challenges, and areas in need of additional support. North Dakota’s new NDInsights website is designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and school – including ours. The North Dakota Dashboard features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English Learner progress and attendance. The Dashboard replaces the former School District Report Card and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) reports. Please note, the data made available to the public masks or hides data for groups with 10 or fewer students to protect confidential information about individual students. For questions concerning K-12 education data, please contact the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. Web: www.nd.gov/dpi/contact
