We are rejoicing over the teachers and staff that the Lord has brought to serve the students and families of Hope Academy.
They are talented and passionate educators who believe that each child who walks though our doors has unique, God-given abilities and intrinsic value.Â And they are committed to providing a classical, Christ-centered education of the utmost excellence to the children of the inner city.
Many of these teachers and staff also have a flair for innovation and creativity. That was revealed again this past week when Hope’s upper school principal, Nathan Ziegler, was featured onÂ TheÂ Weather Channel,Â Good Morning America, andÂ KARE 11Â for his “below-zero” weather experiments. HisÂ “Minnesota Cold” YouTube videosÂ have garnered national attention and millions of views.
And while Mr. Ziegler’s notoriety is fueled by frostbite,Â our hearts are melting over God’s faithful provisionÂ and the joy-filled, year-end generosity of so many.
As we round the New Year,Â we have received more than 90%Â of our annual fundraising goal for this year. We are so grateful to the Lord for his provision!
Thank you to each one of you who has given sacrificially to this labor of God’s love!
With deep gratitude,
Head of School
