After snack, homework, and reading time, students are able to unwind through a variety of creative activities including art, music, sports, games, and entertainment.
Garden Club and Creation Care
New Hope’s Garden Club meets weekly after school during prime growing seasons. Participants are responsible and enthusiastic Upper School students with teacher sponsors. These passionate students and faculty maintain New Hope’s Urban Farm, the Outdoor Classroom (an official school yard habitat), and the nationally-certified Monarch Way Station. Garden Club members enjoy planning, planting, and weeding their gardens, but the real thrill is the harvest.
The Creation Care Team is responsible for New Hope’s environmental awareness. During the school year, the group leads efforts to reduce energy and water usage in and around New Hope. The Creation Care Team inspires their peers toward environmentally-aware choices by creating short awareness movies, sharing interesting postings throughout campus, performing educational skits in all-school chapel, and organizing fun conservation competitions for students and faculty.
The work of both the Creation Care team and the Garden Club has brought numerous awards to New Hope including the “Good Sports Always Recycle” recognition, which is awarded annually to Ten schools from Tennessee
After School Arts Academy
The ASAA offers multiple classes in ballet, art, drama, piano, and strings. Registration for these classes happens at the beginning of each semester, and classes normally run for 12 weeks. Near the end of the spring semester, a recital and art show allow Arts Academy students the opportunity to showcase their learning.
