Thank you

Greetings Hopper Families!!

We hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving break this past week. We are so thankful for having you in our school, in our community, in our lives. Thanks for all your food contribution and the playdoughs for Caitlin Smiles. Holiday Shop was a success, thanks to the volunteers and teachers who were great examples of teamwork. A big shout-out to Missy Oswald, who organized this event for our kids. You are truly wonderful!! Poinsettia sale had many orders, thank you all! A special thanks to Natalie Gross who stepped up to help Amy DelCastillo with the paperwork. While on the "contribution" topic, did you know that this Tuesday after Thanksgiving is called Giving Tuesday? After two of the largest shopping day in the US, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday was created to cultivate generosity among people. There are many ways to give back to society, community, the world. Just something for you to think about.

PoW (PARENTS ON WELLNESS): Do you have a special interest in promoting school wellness? Would you like to evaluate the food choices offered at our school cafeteria? Are you interested in discussing health-promoting foods that could be added to our current menu? Do you know there are healthful choices that are delicious, cost effective, and remain within the nutritional guidelines that could be added to our menu? If you have an opinion and would like to promote nutritional health in our school, we want to connect with you! Please contact Chris and Cassandra Wenger at Click here for the flyer with more information.

PTO MEETING: In the month of December we hold a PTO Meeting during the day time to accommodate those parents who can't come in the evening hours. On Tuesday, December 5, we will have our monthly meeting at 9:30am. Come hear what ideas we have for our school and give us your input on our organization. We hope to see you all there!!

THANK A TEACHER: Looking for a great teacher gift? Recognize special teachers, coaches and staff with a donation in their name to the Manheim Township Educational Foundation. Recognized faculty will receive a personalized certificate with your name on it. With donations of $25 or more, MTEF will gift a book to their school’s library! Donations also return to Manheim Township students in the form of grants and support of educational programs. Simply visit and download the Thank a Teacher form. Watch for forms coming home the week after Thanksgiving!
