Back to School

Getting back to school after summer break is exciting! Hopkins is committed to the smoothest transition from year to year as possible. Class lists are finalized and posted on the front doors during the last two weeks of school.  In late April or early May, incoming kindergarten students have an opportunity to meet the kindergarten team and experience the classroom. Likewise, during the last weeks of school, sudents in Kindergarten through 4th grade get to visit thier teacher for the following year during a 30-minute "Meet your Teacher" time. 

In the Fall, Hopkins holds an Ice Cream Social on the day before school starts, to touch base with teachers, drop off school supplies, find out about PTO and student clubs and have some ice cream. Class supply lists are sent home on the last day of school, but are also posted on this page. In addition, another wonderful and informative evening is Hopkins' annual Back to School Night. This is an evening designed for parents. We encourage you to come without students, but wouldn't want anyone to miss out if there are not other child care options - kids are always welcome at Hopkins. Back to School Night is an evening during which parents and guardians can visit their student's classroom and hear the academic plan for the year. There are two identical sessions for families that have more than one student attending Hopkins. 

If you have questions about any of our Back to School activities, please don't hesitate to call us at 303-347-4550.
