Buildings in Hope Town

When you are walking around in Hope Town you can see that there is a lot of construction going on. I don’t know if it is true but they say that. They are building an apartment next to the burn down food store.

It will be great for the locals to have more housing.

Hope Town Art Show

It is outstanding how a blank canvas could come to have so much color and life. March 12th was Hope Town’s annual art show. The walls were thriving with beauty and every painting was selling quickly. Much of the profits go to Hope Town Primary School and this year they raised about $2,000! As a surprise, Hope Town Primary Junkanoo even came out and rocked till’ they dropped. If you have not already, maybe next year you will enter your painting. Everyone is welcome.

FOOD STORE FIRE

There was an tragedy at the Food Store last month. A fire broke out and destroyed the roof.  All of the inside of it was dark. They said it may have been caused by an electric problem.  Miss Keisha reopened it for now and they are using the little store that they used to sell pizza in, called the Pizza Shack.  Now they are selling some items that they sold in the larger one.

The Box Cart Derby

The Box Cart Derby was a huge success.  We raised money selling snowcones for the 6th grade trip to Eleuthera.  It was so cool when the box carts zoom down the big hill.

We do this every year so you can join in next year.  It’s gonna be a lot of fun!

How the Christmas Play Goes -a background perspective

Welcome to the blog!  We have been working on the Christmas play for three months.  We’ve been doing great.  Sometimes we have a couple of problems but at the end we get it right.  As the star, Annie, I understand how much work you have to put into the play.  From 4-5pm every day, we practice.

If you like musicals, you probably want to come to the play!  Without the directors Mrs. Carrie, Ms Jane, Ms Hope, Ms Chelsey and everyone who volunteers, this play wouldn’t be possible.

Signing off of this blog is grade six student Kailey saying “Read you next time!”.  Good-bye!

Christmas Village

The Christmas Village is a fun event that happens at the ballfield in Hope Town.  It is going to be December 16, 17, and 18th.  It is three nights long.  The time it starts is 6pm and it ends at 9pm.  There will be a lot of games to play!  On the last night, Santa comes.

One of my favorite parts is the ice rink.  You can get skates and skate in it and something comes out like snow!
