As part of our Leadership initiative, student leaders signed up for the club of their choice at the beginning of the school year. Staff members are club advisors and have chosen a club that also interests them to assist. Having the clubs allows students to be engaged in an elective that interests them and teach others their skills in this area. The clubs meet on each early release day from 8:30 am - 9:30 am.
We are excited to invite all of our parents and interested community members to our very first Leadership Night on October 2nd from 5:30-7:00! We have a family dinner planned along with a presentation from our student leaders and the PTO. We will also have leadership activities set up for our families to participate in together while our student leaders facilitate. We are very excited about our first Leadership Night event and we can't wait to share it with you!

On Tuesday, September 23rd, The Hope Charter Student Leaders hosted a Leadership Assembly at 1:30pm in honor of a longtime community supporter of Hope Elementary Charter School. Leadership awards were given to students who were recognized for exemplifying excellent leadership skills and above average behavior during the past quarter.
The assembly was also held to recognize the North Carolina Bar Association’s Citizen Lawyer 2014 Award given to one of the members of the group, Kate Deiter-Maradei. The Citizen Lawyer Award recognizes lawyers who exemplify the ideals of a citizen lawyer: those with sustained and exceptional civic, community and volunteer service in communities across the state. Ms. Deiter-Maradei was one of nineteen attorneys across the state given the Citizen Lawyer Award in 2014.
Hope Elementary students were ecstatic to welcome many members from the North Carolina Bar Association and community to share in their leadership celebrations!
