Dear Hopewell Parents and Families,
The first day of the 2018-2019 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 1st. Information Day is for all families, including rising 6th graders from our feeder schools and new students who have recently registered. Visit the HMS website for the time(s) you should attend, and look for more information soon about the event. 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 1st:.
Student Accident Insurance
Free/Reduced Lunch Applications
Once again, we will be offering a top locker incentive for the first 200 people who register with the PTA online. We are expecting to open online registration on July 24th at 9:00am. I will send an email to remind everyone the day before with information about how to register.
All 6th grade students, those who are new to Fulton County, 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 locker fees and encouraging families to register for the PTA, as well as donate to the Enrichment Fund. You do have the option of purchasing your locker online by visiting our website and clicking on the "Online School Payments" tab, 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 24th 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 ($15 – cash or money orders only)
PTA Membership (ranging from $30-$250)
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 6th. This ensures that all 6th graders enrolled on the first day of school are able to attend
Have a great day, and enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
