Dear Hopkins Elementary Stakeholders:
I am truly honored to be a part of the Hopkins Elementary Family. We are in for a fantastic year! I am a lifelong learner and proud product of Richland School District One. My post graduate work includes earning my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Clemson University and my Master of Education in Administration and Supervision from Southern Wesleyan University.
As the principal of Hopkins Elementary, it is my mission to engage, educate, and empower each and every stakeholder of our school community into places of continual excellence as collaborative partners in education.
I truly believe that there are great things happening at Hopkins Elementary and, moreover, this school has an amazing amount of potential to far exceed expectations to produce global learners who will one day be global leaders.
We will continue with AVID Elementary (Advancement via Individual Determination) which encourages students to have a “growth mindset” by emphasizing the principle that “progress is determined by personal effort.” Our third through fifth grade teachers will continue with the implementation of AVID strategies in their classrooms, teaching the students specific skills/ strategies that will help them achieve their goals. Additionally, we will continue to work to make learning visible in every classroom by ensuring that all students know what they learning and why they are learning the material. These strategies will help students to be successful not only in school, but in life…from elementary school...through college and beyond!
Throughout the year, I encourage you to stay connected by taking a look at our events calendar, parent information and school resources on our school's website.
Here to serve,
RICHLAND ONE TO PROVIDE WEEK’S WORTH OF MEALS
FOR STUDENTS ON MONDAYS STARTING MARCH 30;
PARENTS ASKED TO COMPLETE ONLINE FORM
While schools are closed, Richland One is providing “grab-and-go” breakfasts and lunches for students on weekdays at designated locations. Starting March 30, families will receive a week’s worth of meals on Mondays.
“The change will reduce the number of trips families have to make to the pick-up locations for meals. The meals will be picked up once a week for the entire week,” said Richland One Nutrition Services Director Tracy Dixon.
Along with offering curbside meal pick-ups, the district also has been making bus deliveries to a limited number of sites. With the new meal distribution process, bus deliveries will end after Friday, March 27, Dixon said. Richland One is working with community partners to provide home deliveries to parents who are unable to pick up meals for their children from one of the 10 sites.
To help the Nutrition Services staff know how many meals to prepare, Richland One parents are asked to complete an online form. Parents can access the form directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R1Meals or via the district’s website (www.richlandone.org). Parents will receive a follow-up email after they complete the form.
All children 18 and under are eligible to receive the free meals. Parents can drive to any of the locations, remain in their vehicles and staff will distribute the meals curbside. The pick-up hours will be 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Mondays. Children must be present to receive the meals.
