At Hope Lutheran School, we are happy to provide families with a Full-Day Kindergarten program. Besides a rich and rewarding core curriculum, our students also have weekly classes in library, music, art, physical education, religion, and technology.
Our Full-Day Kindergarten program is led by Mrs. Theresa Bush, who brings years of teaching experience to our Kindergarten classroom. Her students love her and parents are amazed at how much their children grow and progress during the Kindergarten year.
Enrollment Is Open!

Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
Recognizing that our Kindergarten students are, in general, moving from a half-day program to a full-day program, Hope Lutheran has instituted a transitional program to help our students integrate into our our full-day elementary program.
Some parents may opt for the shorter schedule for the entire year, while others will opt for the extended track from the beginning. Some may choose to start with the shorter schedule and ease into the longer schedule during the year.
The Required Track includes the complete curriculum detailed below.
