WEB Leader Training
WEB Leader training will take place on Friday,
July 28th and Monday, July 31st from 8:00 – 1:00 in
the gym. Both training days are mandatory as we will begin to
teach/coach students on how to be a WEB Leader and prepare them for the 6th
Grade Orientation. The training will involve lots of games, group activities,
fun, and learning. Students should wear comfortable clothes as we will be on
the floor and very active (no dresses or skirts). For the trainings, we
will provide snacks each day as we know the days will be long. Make sure
students eat a big breakfast. Students are encouraged to bring any extra snacks
they might like and a water bottle. An email will be sent out soon directly to
WEB Leaders (using email addressed provided on the application).
Please review the dates below pertaining to back-to-school activities. As we approach the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year, more information will be available via this website (as well as through email). Any emails sent to parents will also be posted to the website, so if you are a new-to-Hopewell family (not including rising 6th graders who were zoned for HMS) and haven't registered yet, you should check the website regularly. Details such as when schedules will be available, how to get a top locker, etc. will be shared in July.

Planning to travel? Check this first
If you are planning to travel during the school year, please review your child's attendance record first. Fulton County Schools' attendance policy can be found online at www.hopewellmustangs.net under Parents, 2015-2016 Handbook and on page 6 in your child's agenda. 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.
