The Hopewell Middle School Media Center got a face lift this summer thanks to some Cambridge High School art students. A group of talented students donated many hours painting columns to resemble book spines. Among the artists were Becca Waldorf, Nicole Harris, C J Manabat, Kelli Gargan, Amy Laik, and Maanasa Javangula. Most of them are Hopewell alumni who have now left their mark for future Mustangs to enjoy. Returning students and teachers love the new look. The Media Center still has a few columns left to paint, so interested artists should contact Ms. Whitney Beem (email@example.com)
REACH, an integral tenet of the Complete College Georgia Initiative, is a needs-based mentorship and scholarship program designed to encourage students, starting in middle school, to persist in their educational pursuits. Students are provided with the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, access college, achieve post-secondary success, and be prepared for the 21st Century workforce. If your student is interested in signing up for this scholarship, please ask them to sign up in the Counseling Office by 9/27. The list of students will be reviewed by a committee and the nominees will be alerted at the beginning of October. For information please visit the REACH website at: https://reachga.org/
The Fulton County School System will administer the online IOWA Assessments to students in grades 3, 5, and 8 during the window of September 18 – 29, 2017. The IOWA Assessment is a norm-referenced test (NRT). Scores from the NRT are used to compare the performance of Fulton’s students with the performance of students in a national sample. Test results are expected in November. See Hopewell's specific testing schedule in the attachment. Please do your best to ensure your 8th grader is present for each day of testing.

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.
