Welcome back for another year!
The past two days we have been settling into our new classes - students and teachers alike! We are excited for the prospects that this new year will bring, and we are committed to approaching them with the purpose, pride, and passion of Hopewell School District.
For those of you in Mr. Toporski's classes, please check out the following information for staying updated through the Remind alert system:
Hope everyone has a wonderful year, and please check back for more updates!
7th Grade General Music students interested in earning some extra credit may do so this week by creating their own techno song. You may use the online mixer at Soundation.com or a program like Garage Band for Apple computers and iOS devices. Here are the guidelines for creating your song:
The deadline for this extra credit is FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2012. You may bring in your song on any day between now and then.
Glad to see all the students after summer break! It sounds like everyone did some interesting things during their time off. Hopefully you're all refreshed and ready for another exciting year of school!
I'm pleased to announce that we were able to purchase three new Remo drums for our use in the general music classes. My goal is to keep expanding our percussion inventory so that students get the chance to experience and make music on a variety of instruments from around the world.
As we get back into the swing of things, please remember that I will be keeping our website and social media pages up to date with all the latest class information. That said, everyone's first assignment of the year is to share your Course Syllabus or Handbook with your parents, then returned the completed Signature Sheet no later than Friday, August 31st. Extra copies can be obtained from your class page on the website, or by asking me at school.
