Teacher & Professional of the Year

TOTY.jpgCongratulations to our Professional of the Year, Mary Mueller who works in our counseling department, and to our Teacher of the Year, Lisa Waldorf who works with our Rising Stars students.

Here's what some of their colleagues had to say about them: "Mary Mueller quietly goes above and beyond every day to support both current students and new-to-HMS families. She gives each family the time and attention they need to manage the big transitions in their life. She maintains contact with these families after their kids start and often helps them navigate the environment, both in school and the community."

"Lisa Waldorf makes it look so easy when I know it is anything but easy. She is always engaging her students to do their best, including having peer helpers dress up as characters from the books she is reading.  She has numerous job titles here at Hopewell and is the first person here on our hall and usually the last to leave."


Congratulations to Aubrey Bolger (7th grade) who recently had the privilege of paging at the state capitol for Alpharetta Representative, Chuck Martin.  Giving back to the community, while learning and experiencing the legislative process, is an invaluable lesson for all students who participate. For over 50 years, the experience of a legislative page has sparked many political aspirations and has been a connective link between elected leaders and Georgia’s young students.  

The  Georgia House of Representatives’ Page Program, as well as the State Senate Page Program, is an exclusive opportunity for Georgia’s students between 12 and 18 years of age. Contact your local representatives for information on future Paging opportunities.

Bilingual Community Liaison/ Enlace Bilingüe con los Padres

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.
