Spain Spring Break Trip Meeting December 5
The final enrollment meeting for students and parents interested in travel to Spain over spring break will be Thursday evening, December 5th in the Hopewell Media Center at 6:00 PM. We will visit four different Spanish cities and deepen our understanding of the history, culture and language of Spain. The incredible individual growth that comes with seeing the world and exploring someplace new is invaluable and Ms. Haak is eager to share the specific details, pricing and itinerary with parents. We already have more than a dozen students and parents traveling with us from HMS and Taylor Road MS and this is the final call to learn more about this great adventure! Please RSVP right away!
Congratulations to the Hopewell tennis team for winning the overall Fulton County tennis championship and for being named the overall girls champion with victories in the finals of both singles and doubles. Both titles were determined by how well the overall team did in all matches. Nadia Woodard (8th grade) won the girls singles title and Madeleine Holman (7th grade) and Julia Malever (8th grade) came back from two games behind and won 8 points in a row to clinch the doubles title in a tiebreaker. Amelia Cook and Emily Eigeman lost in the semifinals to the team Holman and Malever defeated in the finals. Coach Haak is proud of all of her players for playing very competitive matches and devoting time to early-morning practices since September!

Planning to travel? Check this first
If you are planning to travel during the school year, please review your child's attendance record first. Please note that in order to have any planned absence considered approved, a letter from the parent must be submitted to the assistant principal PRIOR (3 to 5 days) to the planned absence. Approved absences are limited to six (6) per year. The absence may or may not be approved. As well, if your child has missed 10 or more total days of school this year, you may be asked to provide medical notes for additional absences to be considered excused (in accordance with Fulton County's attendance policy). Please reconsider scheduling your family travel/vacation time to coincide with school breaks and avoid missed class time whenever possible.
Thank you for your assistance in keeping your student in class for instruction.
