Please join us on Wednesday, May 18th at 6:30 in our Library for our 2nd Kindergarten information night and open house. We will be providing our parent community with information regarding the new Kindergarten Curriculum and Assessment Document. We will also be giving our community a chance to see first hand what the curriculum looks like in action. See you this Wednesday.
The staff at Robert Hopkins are planning a fundraiser for the residents of Fort McMurray Alberta. The Beacon Hill neighbourhood of Fort McMurray was one of the first neighbourhoods to be destroyed and most if not all homes have met with devastation. This sparked a connection for us here at school. We will have more information coming next week.
Please join us at 8:15 for Music Monday. Launched in 2005 by The Coalition for Music Education, Music Monday is the world’s largest single event dedicated to raising awareness for music education. Each year, hundreds of thousands of students, educators, and music makers participate in a simultaneous nationwide concert performance of an original song written by a Canadian artist. Robert Hopkins supports music in education.

Once there was a school full of happy children. Mr. Thompson was the Principal and he ruled the school. But Mr. Thompson was sad, because he didn't have a blanket to cuddle. So all the kids brought their blankets to school. He looked at them all but Amelia's Bear Blankie was the best. So Amelia shared her Bear Blankie with Mr. Thompson, and he was happy.
