Hopkins Middle School will be starting the Girls on the Run after-school program once again this year, which will start Monday, February 11th and end on Saturday, May 4th, with a celebratory 5k run. Any girl from 6th grade to 8th grade is welcome to join. The program will meet twice a week: Mondays and Wednesdays, from 4PM to 5:30PM. There is a registration fee of $25, but if parents and students need assistance, there is the possibility of a student being sponsored for participation.
The Girls on the Run program helps to develop confidence, team-building, goal setting and problem-solving in a space where girls can feel comfortable and creative. They will develop beneficial life skills, as well as make connections and friendships with other students while doing fun activities along with an exercise program that leads up to the 5k run.
Registration and more information available online at www.GOTRColumbia.org, or by calling Keisha Perry at (803) 445-6017.
The final day to register online to participate is Wednesday, February 20th.

Student Transportation News Corner
We are requesting parent’s assistance to encourage students to walk single file facing traffic. Cross directly across road to bus stop. Look left, right, then left again for approaching traffic. “Be alert, don’t get hurt.” Do not throw objects or wear headphone devices when walking to the bus stop. No horseplay. Carry personal belongings in backpacks or sport bags. Make sure bus has stopped before leaving their seat. Take all belongings with them. Exit in an orderly fashion without pushing or crowding. Hold handrail when walking down steps, don’t jump off. Walk at all times. When crossing the road, use the 15 feet rule. Make eye contact with the driver and watch for hand signal to cross. Stop and look both ways at the centerline, then continue crossing. Go directly to house; do not go to mailbox, etc. If you leave an object on the bus or drop it on the ground always check with the driver before retrieving it.
We wish you and your family a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving break!
