Today’s Life Skills class introduced the protocol for future classes
as well as listening to the experiences of 5 Hope High School seniors who were part of the Hope Life Skills class during their Junior year at Hope.
Mr Cronin introduces today’s guests as well as explaining the Life Skills class protocol for welcoming guests to the class.
As students learned today, we rise in an expression of respect each time a guest enters our classroom to be followed by each student welcoming our guest with a firm handshake, eye contact, a smile and a personal greeting like ‘Hi, my name is Raul’ and ‘thanks for coming to our class’ or ‘welcome to Hope!‘
