November News

Hello Hopper Families!

Happy November! It's time for our Annual Food Drive. A flyer should have come home in your child's folder requesting a specific donation item. In addition to your items, we are also collecting cash, Giant gift cards, and free turkey vouchers (for Stauffers or Giant). Please send in your donations with your student during the week of November 7th-11th. Please contact with any questions.

HOLIDAY SHOP: This will be held from Wednesday November 16th – Friday November 18th. Students are asked to return the flyer sent home from school this week with a list of loved ones they wish to shop for and a budget. A pre-shop/preview event will not be held this year. Assistance is needed to mark shopping bags with student names upon arrival, assist students with selections, organize merchandise, restock items as directed, and prepare students to check out. Please see the signup genius for classroom sign up slots and sign up to support your student’s class! Feel free to reach out to Amanda Smith at if you have questions, concerns, or desire additional information regarding the holiday shop this year.

NO SCHOOL: A long break is coming up! The students have NO SCHOOL Monday, November 21st - Friday, November 25th. Teacher conferences will be held on the 21st & 22nd (please contact your teacher if you need more info). As a special treat, the PTO will be providing a pizza lunch to the teachers on Tuesday, November 22nd, during parent/teacher conferences. If you'd like to help out by donating drinks and/or desserts, please check out the signup genius here:

SAVE THE DATE: Wear your cozy, festive pajamas and shop with us a the Winter Scholastic Book Fair on Thursday, December 1st from 6pm-8pm. More details coming soon!
