We’re Going Back to School

were going back to school 1For this school year, the Charlottesville Hospital Education Program sponsored an Open House for hospital staff to visit classrooms to increase their understanding of educational services offered through HEP.  On August 20th the Charlottesville Hospital Education Program classroom was abuzz as teachers, doctors, nurses, therapists and other   hospital staff gathered around bagels and coffee for the HEP’s first Annual Open House.  Our slogan, “Learn, Hope, Grow”, sparked much conversation about our school’s vision for students and their families. As students deal with their daunting realities of their illnesses and injuries, school facilitates a sense of normalcy and hope to students for the present and the future.  Teachers created lollipops labeled with the school’s quick facts as a thank you for “popping” by. Local media has responded extremely well by spreading the word throughout several communities. Check out the following news feed:
