Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. Hopkins County Schools would like to encourage our families and students to join us in our efforts to focus on school attendance because of its positive impact on student success. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Your student can start building good attendance habits now so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. To learn more, read the beginning-of-the-year attendance letter to parents/guardians.
A group of eight Grapevine Elementary School staff members received the #LionChaser / #GiantSlayer Award at the Jan. 13 Board of Education meeting. They stepped up to help deliver Backpack Blessings to 42 students when the district was out of school Oct. 24-25 because of a water main break. Backpack Blessings is a Family Resource Youth Service Center project that supplies easy-to-fix food for students who might otherwise be without food while out of school over a weekend. Those honored are Patricia Matheny, Kaitlyn Young, Barbara Stoltz, Kristen Maxberry, Amanda Sarles, Nicole Pace, Tonja Simms, and Billy Ward.
Browning Springs Middle School students Melody Kincaid and Mya Latimer were honored with the #LionChaser / #GiantSlayer Award at the Jan. 13 Board of Education meeting. The pair responded enthusiastically when 6th-grade writing teacher Erin Shaw asked her Leadership students to take on a “passion project.” They collected baskets such as quilts, blankets, lotion, fuzzy socks, puzzles, and card games for residents of a local nursing home. They collected more than 100 donated items and also visited with the residents.
Brandon Poole, an English teacher at Madisonville North Hopkins, was presented with the #LionChaser / #GiantSlayer Award at the Dec. 16 Board of Education meeting. He was a major help to the family of the late Taelor Morse after the student’s tragic death. Mr. Poole helped the family with a slide show and music for the funeral, took the family food several nights, and helped promote their effort to raise money to cover the funeral costs. Taelor’s mother, Jennifer Katich, said, “We would not have made it without Mr. Poole.” He is a real #LionChaser!
