• New Hope Elementary's 2015 Mustang Stampede and Great Balloon Race gave students a chance to learn and have fun while raising money for the school.
    Sponsored by the New Hope Elementary PTA, the day featured hula hoop contests, corn hole and music leading up to the main event, the balloon release. Tied to each balloon was a postcard with a student's name and the school address. As the balloons are found and the postcards are sent back to the school, students will make a map showing where they traveled. The student whose balloon travels the farthest will win a prize.  
    Also during the event, the PTA dedicated a new school flagpole to recently retired principal Allen Lewis, who served at New Hope for nine years.
