Principal's Corner

We are pleased to introduce our new Assistant Principal, Alissa Powell. Please see the letter below to learn more about Mrs. Powell.

Dear Hopkins Community,

It is my honor and privilege to join Mark Hopkins Elementary as your Assistant Principal. I am excited to get to know our kids and families and look forward to how I can support our Principal, Mrs. Wagner, in making this an amazing school year. I can already tell that Hopkins is a special place! 

For over twenty years, I have served in public education. I loved my years as a classroom teacher as well as serving in a variety of leadership roles at the elementary level. These experiences have grown me into an educator who believes that a great school should be an environment that fosters curiosity, kindness and a love for learning. School should be a fun place where all students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. 

A fun fact about me is that I grew up here in Colorado. When I am not at school, you can find my family and I off in the mountains hiking, four-wheeling, and taking in all the beauty our state has to offer. 

As the Assistant Principal, I am committed to working diligently with Mrs. Wagner, our staff, and our families to help every student grow and reach their full potential. Working with kids is such a joy and a gift! I can hardly wait to meet each and every one of you in person. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time with questions or concerns. My email address is apowell[at][dot]us and you can reach me by calling the school at (303)347-4712. Wishing you and your family a wonderful school year!
