Students bring inspiration to others in a variety of ways during “Hope Week”.

EAST students from Nettleton High School and Nettleton Junior High recently participated in “Hope Week”. The 5th annual “Hope Week” included activities and events that salute and highlight the importance of Hope in the life of our community.

NHS EAST student Christina brainstormed with classmates about ways they could be involved with Hope Week. She stated that every person needs encouraging words every now and again.  Words can bring inspiration and hope; they can show kindness, care, sympathy, and friendship.  

During the discussion, students realized how powerful their words could be. They decided to share through the written word, spoken word, and through singing words of hope. EAST students enlisted other groups and organizations such as the Fox Meadow Honors Choir, Youth Alive, Library Club, NHS Dance Team, NHS Student Council, NHS National Honor Society, FBLA, FCCLA, and others to provide “Words of Hope” throughout our community. 

The students used applications such as Photoshop, InDesign, Fireworks and Microsoft Publisher to create cards of friendship and encouragement for patients and families going through a medical crisis, and for hospital staff members who serve those families.They also read to nursing home patients and elementary students and delivered cookies and messages of hope to HOPE Circle and area chemotherapy centers.  

During the Word of Hope Kick-off event for the faculty, Mrs. June Morse of Hope Circle expressed thanks to the Nettleton EAST programs for their efforts in making the week HOPE filled.
