PSSA Week Begins.....

Greetings Hoppers families!

This will be a short week and long weekend for our students. There will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, April 19th and on Monday, April 22nd. We hope you have a fantastic break with your family! Report Cards went home this past Friday. Please sign the envelope and return to your teacher. Books for Breakfast for the 2nd grade was lovely! Thank you to all the parents who came to have breakfast with their students and read books. Here are some photos from the breakfast.

PSSA Testing begins this week. Unless approved, volunteers are not permitted in the building on testing days. Thank you who all signed up to bring in healthy snacks. Lets show our students support by all wearing the same colors. Here is a breakdown for this week:

Tuesday, April 16 - Be brave! Wear a RED shirt to school, color of bravery and confidence.

Wednesday, April 17 - Just chill! Wear a BLUE shirt to school. It's very calming.

Thursday, April 18 - Victory! Wear a GREEN shirt to school like in ancient Greece!

Tuesday, April 30 - Fresh start! Wear WHITE to show that you are ready to make a clean start. Wednesday, May 1 - A Bit of Sunshine! Wear a YELLOW shirt to school. Yellow activates your mind & puts a smile on your face. Thursday, May 2 - Wear BLACK and get ready to tackle science!

Friday, May 3 - Wear a PURPLE shirt. You have conquered the PSSAs like a king or queen!
