Get Connected
Parent Cue App
As a parent, some of the most important things you do for your child don’t happen in a single day. You make small deposits in their life week after week—over time. That’s why the Parent Cue App gives weekly cues to help you make the most of the time you spend with your kid or teenager.
Be sure to link to Hope Lutheran Church by using the 58102 zip code for even more meaningful ways to connect with what your student is learning each week!
