A week ago our neighbors at the Springfield First Church of the Nazarene held their annual Neighborhood Connection and Walk/Run. Our students were able to help them set up for the big event that afternoon!

The Springfield Ballet Company performed at Hope last Friday and gave a wonderful performance during their summer outreach tour. They performed "Pachelbel: Canon in D Major," "Fairy Variations from The Sleeping Beauty," "Cygnets from Swan Lake," "Irish Jig," "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "In the Mood."

The infirmary has been revamped thanks to Stacy Davis, Director of Nursing, many other staff members and volunteers! It will now be known as the Welcome Room with a beach theme to help make the transition easier for new children at Hope!

We had our own Hope's Got Talent Show this past Wednesday. The kids had a great time singing their favorite songs while the audience members clapped along! Pictured below you will find two of our winners. The best act went to John R. and best overall was Eric J. Congratulations to everyone that participated!
