Read Across America: Next week, February 28th-March 4th, is Read Across America Week at Hopewell. Students and Faculty will be celebrating our love of reading through our theme "Find Your Story." Take a look at our schedule for our spirit days. Students will also be participating in activities that celebrate reading throughout the week in their classrooms. Whole school activities will include teacher reading swaps, cozy up and read days, and a scatter read! Also, our top two Hopewell Battle of the Books teams will participate in the PV Battle at the Bettendorf Library on Wednesday night. It promises to be a wonderful week to celebrate our great readers at Hopewell.

7th Grade TDAP & Meningococcal Vaccine Requirement: To begin the first day of Junior High in August, the Iowa Dept. of Public Health requires all students to have the TDAP and meningococcal vaccines or a notarized exemption form on file.

Once these injections have been completed, please provide the date of immunization or a copy of the updated immunization certificate to either the elementary or junior high school nurse. Please contact your school nurse with questions.
