Transitioning Back to School

Transitioning back to school after summer break can be a stressful time. The Affective Team at Hopkins hopes that the 2014-2015 school year transition will be a smooth one for you and your student. Click HERE for "Back-to-School Transitions: Tips for Parents," to help your student get ready for the start of school. This information can be helpful for ALL familes. It is great for parents of students who experience increased stress during transition periods like returning to school. Even for children who are excited about the start of school, the pace and rigor of returning to the classroom can be a lot to get used to again.  

Ms. Sustr October's 9Teacher Who Cares

Deep down, who doesn’t dream of being the Duck of the Day? Who can resist a Double Duck Brain Challenge? And wouldn’t the world be better off if we could all sing and dance our way from one activity to the next and embrace mistakes with an enthusiastic expression of “awe - pickle de dee” accompanied by a snap of the fingers? Such is life in Ms. Sustr’s classroom. Now you can check it out for yourself on 9News!   

Last spring, Hopkins parent Michelle Fagler nominated Ms. Sustr for 9Teachers Who Care Award. This fall she was chosen. Ms. Sustr’s story will be featured on Friday, October 11th during the 7 a.m. newscast on KTVD channel 20 and the 4 p.m. newscast on KUSA channel 9. It will also repeat at 7 a.m. Saturday the 12th on 9news. The 30-second spot saluting Ms. Sustr will also be on 9News.com.  

Ms. Sustr is passionate about student learning. Her instruction has been recognized as a model for others to emulate. We are proud of this very deserved recognition. Ms. Sustr is a leader in a school of leaders. Ms. Sustr’s excellence is representative of the dedication of all of our staff on behalf of all the students at Hopkins Elementary.

Penny Drive

 

Hopkins Elementary third graders are working hard to learn economics while also making a positive difference in other people's lives. Hopkins third grade students took an opportunity during their economics unit where students had to find a way to meet a short-term financial goal to show their kindness while learning economics at the same time.  

 

The two third grade classes held a Penny Drive to raise money for Heritage School in Sierra Leone, Africa. Having heard about this school through the work that Littleton's own Heritage High School had done to help the people in Sierra Leone, and Hopkins students wanted to make a difference too. They learned one way these families needed help was to get mosquito nets to help reduce the spread of malaria. Our third graders thought this would be a great way to make a difference.  

 

The goal was to raise $20.00 with only pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters that 52 students would bring in throughout the month of January. At the end of January, students counted the money and realized they had raised $157.90! That is almost 8 times their original goal! Hopkins students are proud and excited that they are able to help 15 families stay healthier and make sure their kids get to school.

 

And it gets better! A very generous donor has agreed to match Hopkins’ donation; so altogether will send over $300 to Sierra Leone for the purpose of buying much needed mosquito nets. Hopkins Elementary's third graders helped to make a huge difference in 30 families' lives. What a great act of kindness.
