|Hope Township School, in cooperation with our community, values the importance of a supportive, challenging education for all students. By fostering communication and respect in a positive educational environment, all children can realize their potential. The goal of the HTS Media Center is to provide resources to support the curriculum and meet the informational needs of students and staff while producing lifetime learners.|
All students in grades K-8 meet once a week in the technology lab. Our lab is designed so that each student has access to a computer during the lesson. Lessons are based on the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards in Technology and AASL Standards for 21st for Century Learners. Teachers frequently visit the lab with their classes at other times during the day, allowing students the opportunity to integrate technology into other subject areas.
Hour of Code
All Hope students in grades PreK-8 recently participated in the Hour of Code event. Hour of Code is a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. Hope students coded using a variety of tools which included Edison Robots, Lego WeDo 2.0, Mindstorms, Osmo, and SCRATCH.
