It is time to announce the 2015 HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op Book Drive!
Every year we receive many requests from our Learning Centers for library books that are needed for group reading. And we’d love to get friends of HOPE involved in helping us meet this need. (In fact, we appreciate all the Girl Scout troops who have helped out with previous projects over the last year….you’ve been wonderful!!!)
If you have gently used, K-12 appropriate books, please bring them to the HOPE Online office (373 Inverness Parkway, Suite 205, Englewood) to be donated. If you know of anyone who is looking for a special project, perhaps a Girl Scout troop that needs a philanthropy or a Barnes and Noble store that is throwing out books, we would like to be the beneficiary.
The purpose of this book drive is to place books into libraries of our Learning Centers. We encourage you to forward this information to anyone you think may be interested in helping. Thanks in advance for your donation and for helping to support HOPE students! This book drive runs through the end of March.
HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op is a blended online public k-12 charter school which delivers its curriculum through community-based Learning Centers from Denver to Greeley, Leadville, Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Students attend Learning Centers five days a week and rotate between online lessons and face-to-face classroom instruction. The award-winning curriculum exceeds state standards. HOPE also offers low student-educator ratios and is an accredited high school diploma program, with graduates going on to attend college at institutions from the University of Denver to the University of Northern Colorado and beyond. We serve an at-risk student population, with 8 percent of our students considered homeless and 87 percent on free and reduced lunch. Additionally, HOPE provides character development programs, including physical education, music, the arts and extra-curricular activities such as competitive sports, specialty clubs, talent shows and more.
