Ready to Run?
On April 28th we will host our 2nd Annual Chase the Rainbow Color Run/Walk, open to the entire community (rain date May 5th). This event is part of an on-going effort to revitalize the playground and outdoor space at Hopkins Hill which has been severely damaged by neighboring sand dunes. Funds raised from last year’s event went to new swings and over a dozen new trees planted with the help of the RI Tree Council. We are also underway with plans to hopefully to construct an outdoor classroom this spring.
It is great progress but we are far from our goal. We need a new playground structure. Our current playground, built over 15 years ago, was financed by the PTA. As much as we love the playground, we are aware that the structures are old. Current prices for certified playground structures for ages 5 to 11 start out around $60,000.
This week is our Scholastic Book Fair! Students will have the opportunity to visit the fair during their library period (Wednesday11/28 through Friday 11/30).
The PTA could still use volunteers to help at the book fair. You can sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e094ca8a929a5fc1-fall2
On Wednesday evening, from 6-7:30, the school will host PJs & Books. Wear your PJs, enjoy a story, listen to camp fire songs, have a snack and visit the book fair! This is a FREE event.
