Hopewell

Announcements

School Board Recognition Month:  The month of May is School Board Recognition Month! PVCSD wants to take this opportunity to recognize and appreciate all the PV School Board does for the district and to thank them for all their hard work!

Safe Routes to School Week:  Next week, May 7th-11th, Hopewell will be celebrating “Safe Routes to School Week”!  The goal of the week is to encourage students to walk/ride their bikes or scooters (with a helmet) to school or to walk to their bus stop.  Students who participate by walking/biking to school will be entered in a drawing each day to win a free bike helmet!  One student in each grade will win a helmet.  Students will also have an assembly with Sargent Nelson from the Bettendorf Police Department to discuss bike safety on Friday, May 11th.  Thank you for helping promote exercise and safe routes to school!

Yearbook Orders:  Hopewell is now taking additional orders for the 2017-18 Hopewell yearbook. The cost is $16.00.  Please make the check payable to “PVCSD” with a note attached stating: “Yearbook” and which student and classroom the yearbook should be delivered to when it arrives (“Joe Smith 5G”). Your yearbook order will not be placed until payment is received.

  • To see if you have ordered a 2017-18 Hopewell yearbook, please check your Parent Portal at pleasval.org/parent-homepage/.  Click on “Select a Student” and select your Hopewell student. Click on the “Fees” tab on the left and look for a fee labeled Yearbook-HW 2017-18. If this fee is not there, you have not ordered a yearbook. If you have multiple students at Hopewell please check all your students, as the fee may have been applied to just one of your students.

Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7-11: A reminder that Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up the week of May 7th. The theme this year is “You Lift us UP.” On the morning of Tuesday, May 8th, each student is asked to bring a flower to school for their teacher. The flower can be from their yard or store bought. A room parent will be outside of each teacher’s classroom at 8:10/8:15am with a vase to collect the flowers.  The bouquet will be presented to the teacher that morning.  Thanks!

Hopewell Flag Ceremony: On Friday, May 18th at 10:30 a.m. on the front lawn, Hopewell will celebrate the American Flag and our active and retired service members. This tradition of reflection and honor is in partnership with the American Legion, Le Claire. Hopewell families are invited to join for this celebration. Service members, active and retired, are invited to attend. If you are a current or previous service member and you are planning to attend, please call 563.332.0250 to RSVP.

Free Skating Party: On Thursday, May 31st, 6-8 pm, Hopewell has earned a free skating party. This party was earned because Hopewell averaged over 100 paid skaters per party at the 3 scheduled skate parties this school year.  Skating is free, skate rental is $1.50.  Come out and celebrate an awesome school year with your friends!


Request for Hopewell Harvest Silent Auction Items: No, it’s not fall yet, but plans are already underway for Hopewell Harvest 2018!  The PTA Silent Auction committee is hard at work coming up with basket ideas and seeking out donations from the local community. If you are interested in joining the committee or have an item you would like to donate to next fall’s Harvest, please contact Marie Feehan at feehanmarie@gmail.com. The committee will turn anything you donate into a fabulous basket. Items desired include:

  • Monetary donations
  • Gift cards to local businesses
  • Tickets to local events
  • Items to go into the baskets such as toys, games, etc.
  • Empty baskets or containers that can be used for assembling baskets

Hopewell Harvest is our school’s largest fundraiser of the year and the Silent Auction is an important part of the event. This year, Harvest brought in over $26,000 for programs such as the Visiting Artist/Visiting Author, the Variety Show and the Family Fun Nights. The money was also used to fill teacher grant requests for items such as ukuleles and beat blocks for the music room, class books for 3rd and 6th grades, and craft supplies for Kindergarten.

It’s important we have your support in order to make this event a success. Please Contact Marie Feehan at feehanmarie@gmail.com by May 11th with your donation intents. Remember, there is no Walk-a-Thon this year, so a silent auction donation is a great way to support the Hopewell PTA this spring!

Lost And Found: “Where is my hooded sweatshirt?”  “I can’t find my other glove!”  If this sounds familiar, please come and check out Hopewell’s lost and found table.  Lost and found items will be available for pick-up through Friday, May 18th (Flag Ceremony Day).  Unclaimed items will be donated.

6th Grade FLL Coach: Hopewell is looking for a coach for our 6th grade FLL team! Participating in FLL is an amazing experience for both the kids and the adults involved. No technical background needed, the team members are the ones who do the work. You only need to ask the questions and watch them… GO!  Learn more at firstinspires.org! The season runs from August to December. If you have any questions, PLEASE call Jill Gneiting at 563-542-1553 or email her at jill.gneiting@gmail.com.

PTA Committee Chair Openings 2018-19: The following committee chair positions are open for the 2018-19 school year.  If you are interested in any of these positions, please contact your current PTA President, Sara Sierk (sarasierk@hotmail.com) or your incoming PTA President, Allison McCauley (crabbyinc@gmail.com).  If no one fills these positions we will not be able to provide Hopewell with some wonderful opportunities.  Please consider sharing your time!
