Hello December!

Hello Hopper Families!

We have a few important things to tell you about for the next few weeks leading up to winter break. Please bear with us during this very busy time of year!

First, We are looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday, December 6th, for our Winter Family Fun Night, held at RES from 5:00pm-7:00pm. We are excited to have a new format this year! We'll have pizza, salad, snacks and a hot cocoa bar in the cafeteria. Cash and Venmo accepted. The Scholastic Book Fair will be taking place in the auditorium - a great way to take care of some of your holiday shopping while supporting our school libraries! Steven Courtney will be performing sing-a-longs with the kids, and teachers will be doing readings in the library. You won't want to miss it!

Next, the Winter Staff Appreciation Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, December 13th. Please check out the signup genius and help us offer a wonderful meal to our deserving staff during the holidays. 

We've had a few questions about the Holiday Shop. Unfortunately, this will not be taking place this year, but we hope to see you at our Winter Family Night, where families can shop for books and do a few crafts. 

LAST CALL for a chairperson (or chairpersons) - We are hoping to hold our TALENT SHOW on February 9th. To date, we've been unable to find a volunteer to lead it. If you're interested in learning more about the role, please reach out to Kim Firestone at Unfortunately, if we do not have somebody volunteer by December 15th, we will not be able to have a talent show this year. 

The countdown until Winter Break is on! There will be an EARLY DISMISSAL on Friday, December 22nd, and then NO SCHOOL until Tuesday, January 2nd.

Now that the winter months are upon us, in the event of inclement weather, please keep an eye on your email for any school closures, FID days, or delays. You can also check the Facebook page- Manheim Township School District. In the event of a 2 hour delay, doors will open at 10:45.
