Let's get warm with Winter Bingo!

Dear Hopper Families,

Brrrrr!! So cold!! Don't worry, it will warm up tomorrow as we resume our normal school hours. Although it will be warmer than today, it will still be cold, so please dress your students accordingly. Which reminds me of something else, have your kiddos take a look at the lost and found while at school. We have some winter apparel that didn't make it back to their homes.

We had a great last week with the family members coming to have lunch with their little ones. Due to the 2 hours delay on Friday, Kindergarten class didn't have their Family lunch last week. Please note, Kindergarten Family Lunch will be this Friday, January 25, at 11:00am. This week will still be exciting for every grade because Winter Bingo is this Thursday! Yeah!! Come play some bingo with us! As always, thanks for all your volunteering, we can't do what we do without you parents stepping up to give us a hand.

Here are all the other news we have to share with you. From Mini-THON to Art Night, we have something new, fun and interesting for our students, staff, family and friends. Read on!
