Back to School Night

Hello Hopper Families!

Welcome to a new school year!! We had an amazing first week with many new​ faces around.For the new families: trust me, you and your child(ren) will love this school and our community! Please make sure you complete, sign and send back the emergency papers which came home in the green folder on the first day of school. Ice cream social was wonderful and the adults seemed to have as much fun as the kids.

We also want to share a photo of part of our faculty enjoying the new outdoor sitting area. We are looking for plant donation, such as perenials, for our outdoor decor. Please email if you would like to donate a plant. Back to school night is this week. Come meet the teachers and learn what Reidenbaugh has planned for this year!
