Students and staff from both the Yardley and Doylestown campuses descended on Core Creek Park for New Hope Academy’s annual Fall Picnic on Friday, October 7th, 2022. The weather was perfect for walks in the woods, basketball, football, dancing, frisbee golf, card games, and simply enjoying each other’s company. Students were treated to a lovely lunch provided by NHA. The BBQ grill was wafting out the tantalizing smells of burgers and hot dogs. Staff provided salads, snacks, and desserts that were enjoyed by all. Excitement abounded at the end of the day with the announcement of the winners of the Drama department’s raffle ticket sale that benefited their upcoming play, Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.” As the first cross-campus activity of the year, the Fall Picnic is an opportunity for staff and students to have fun and get to know each other outside of the classroom, in the hopes of building relationships that will grow throughout the year. It also gives the students from each campus the opportunity to meet and socialize. NHA’s Fall Picnic is a unique event that many look forward to — and once again, they were not disappointed.
