Parent/Guardian Questions:
 
Hopewell's 2020-2021 school year will look very different for students, staff, parents and families. We know that families are needing to make decisions regarding child care, health and safety of family members, and what is in the best interest of each child.
 
With so much unknown and new, please use this form to send the District questions. The administrative team will respond as soon as possible. We will try our very best to provide you any available information that can assist you in your decision-making.
 
We will collect some of these questions and responses in order to create a FAQ for parents that will be posted on the website.

The Language Arts block (two periods) provides students with a comprehensive program that teaches the Common Core State Standards and helps students become better readers, writers, and thinkers.  The major objective of this  course is to develop students’ ability to read and understand fiction and nonfiction text and to write, speak, and listen as ways of communicating effectively.  This course has students reading novels, plays, short stories, and poems.  Writing is also a component in the course.  Comprehension, grammar, and editing instruction is integrated into the processes of reading and writing during every day's lessons.
