Dear Hopewell Parents and Families,   

The first day of the 2019-2020 school year is just around the corner!  I am looking forward to a successful school opening and a wonderful school year.  I hope you and your students are ready to go as we continue to strive for excellence and demonstrate our Mustang PRIDE!   

Our first event of the year, our annual Information Day, will take place on Wednesday, August 7th during the following times:

  • 6th Grade:  9:00 - 11:00 am
  • 8th Grade:  12:30 - 2:30 pm
  • 7th Grade:  3:00 - 5:00 pm

 Information Day is for all families, including rising 6th graders from our feeder schools and new students who have recently registered.  Although your attendance is not required, Information Day provides both students and parents the opportunity to meet teachers, staff, and other Hopewell families.  The following information and services will also be available on August 7th.   


Student Schedules*
Medication Forms
Student Accident Insurance
Bus Transportation Information
Free/Reduced Lunch Applications

Once again, we will be teaming up with our PTA to offer a Top Locker Incentive option to those that purchase a membership online. The first 200 people who purchase a membership with the PTA on their website will be guaranteed a top locker position for their child. Their website www.HopewellPTA.org will go LIVE for membership on July 31st at 9am. Memberships can be purchased for as little as $30! The PTA will also be announcing new incentives with membership that includes reserved seating at some of Hopewell's best events (including the 8th grade ceremony).  Details will be released soon. The Top Locker Incentive is our PTA's biggest fundraiser and they appreciate your support. 

All 6th grade students, any other students who are new to HMS, or those who have changed their address are required to provide “proof of residence” prior to the start of school.  Visit the HMS website to get more information about the New Residency Verification Requirements.  We will have staff on hand to check these documents during Information Day.   

In addition to the above, we will be collecting our locker/activity fees and encouraging families to register for the PTA, as well as donate to the Enrichment Fund.  You do have the option of paying your locker/activity fees online by visiting our website and clicking on the "Online School Payments" tab (or download the OSP app on your phone), and you can register for the PTA by visiting their website, which can be found by visiting the "Quick Links" section of our website (website registrations will open on July 31st at 9:00am).  Make sure you save your receipts.  If you are not able to purchase these services online, you can purchase them on Information Day. 

PE/Hall Locker/Activity Fee ($20 – cash or money orders only)
PTA Membership (starting at $30)

We will continue our WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) program to support our incoming 6th graders.  This program will truly benefit our youngest students as they get acclimated to HMS.  Our 8th grade WEB leaders will be training this summer in preparation for the 6th Grade Orientation activities, which will take place on the first day of school, August 12th.  This ensures that all 6th graders enrolled on the first day of school are able to attend the Orientation.   

PTA will be selling spiritwear on Information Day, and we are encouraging all staff and students to wear their HMS gear on Fridays throughout the year to show their HMS spirit! 

Finally, our supply lists will be posted on our website next week, and this year, we are asking families to provide students with a small bag to carry their Microsoft Surface 3's and chargers during the school day.  Students will not be permitted to carry their backpacks during the school day. 

If you have questions or need additional information, please call the school or visit our website at http://school.fultonschools.org/ms/hopewell/Pages/default.aspx.  I look forward to seeing you on August 7th!   

Sincerely,   

Michael LeMoyne   
Principal   
Hopewell Middle School
