Please see our COVID-19 Updates page for the latest news from the district.  Latest update: 3/30/2020 (Prom Information)


The Beaver County School Districts and the Career and Technology Center continue to work together as we receive guidance from our state and federal leaders. Today, Governor Wolf announced that all schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.  Therefore, all Beaver County school facilities are closed and events cancelled through the end of the school year.  While much uncertainty still exists, this announcement will allow families to plan for their needs in the coming months.  All schools will continue to provide continuity of education and meals through the last regularly scheduled day of school.  We understand that this is heartbreaking for the Class of 2020, but please be patient as we seek additional guidance from our state leaders regarding graduation and other special events.  We appreciate your patience and support during this closure and we will continue to provide updates as we move forward together.

The breakfast and lunch pickups are still on-going at the Junior High and Independence Elementary School between 11-1 each weekday. 


Device Pickup Information: 

 If a Hopewell student is still in need of a device for continuity of instruction, please let your child’s teacher know.

About the Teacher

I grew up in Dover, Pennsylvania and then attended Kutztown University where I  earned my B.S. in Art Education in 1994. I was then hired at Hopewell in 1997. I enjoy teaching art today as much as I did my first year, and I can't wait to start the new school year with all of you!
