Parent Involvement & Resources



Parents Council

Hopkins House prides itself on actively engaging parents in the daily activities of the school. The Parents Council is designed as an open forum for parents to bring their ideas and input to the administration, including, but not limited to: fundraising, volunteering, and school operation.
Parents Council Executive Committee: Selected by our parents, the executive parent council, consisting of Council President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and a representative from each classroom, meets to discuss, academy operation, policy, general classroom issues or concerns, and fundraising. Elections are held each year and are open to all parents.

Fundraisers: Fundraisers are held throughout the year and all proceeds go to the Parents Council. These funds are used to purchase items for the classrooms, pay for field trips or puppet shows, underwrite the cost of graduations, or various additional items for the center at large.
Volunteering: The Hopkins House Preschool Academy has an open door policy and encourages parents to take an active role in the education of their children. Parents are welcome to come and read stories, serve as chaperones on field trips, participate in fundraising efforts, or just to drop by.
