This holiday season, the students & staff at New Hope Middle would like to give back to our community. The Student Council will be sponsoring a School Food Drive to help needy families in our community during the holiday season. By doing this, we hope to teach our students the value of giving to people less fortunate than them. No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone. We know our Kodiaks can make a difference! Our food drive will run through Thursday, November 15.
The Kodiak Annual Students vs. Faculty Basketball Game will be held in lieu of connections on Friday, November 16, 2018. Two student teams from each grade level will be allowed to compete.

In Georgia, the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
As of November 1, the Department of Education has published its new financial data reporting tool as required by HB 139. HB 139 required the aggregation and publication of a variety of financial information for all school districts, such as revenue and expenditure data, capital construction costs, recent audits, and similar reports. The reporting system can be found at the link above.
The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. For parents who do not have access to the Internet, school administrators will allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents are encouraged to participate in the survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish.
