Blogs

There is so much expertise on our staffs.  Each educator brings a unique background, education, and experience to their job and while your children benefit from this every day, we should also share this expertise more with parents. I’d like to highlight four of our specialists’ blogs that contain really useful information for the Hopkinton community. 

If you want to keep track of the arts in the school and district, head over to Music Teacher Ben Levergood’s blog. There’s information there on the upcoming Celebration of the Arts, what a “typical” music class looks like, plenty of pictures, and links to local performances in the arts. You can find the blog by clicking right here.


Our elementary schools’ Art Teacher Kim Emerson has been produced a web site for quite some time. There’s a ton of content from each grade, Preschool to Sixth Grade with links to local art programs as well as general information on art principles. You can find Kim’s site right here.

Finally, we move from the arts to the Counselor’s Corner. Our HMS School Counselor Jackie Kleiner has nearly 20 years of counseling experience and she shares her expertise regularly in her blog. Both Jackie and I receive scores of questions from parents on topics such as anxiety, safety, healthy habits, and friendships. Many of these questions are answered through Jackie’s blog. You can access Counselor’s Corner at this link. 

Finally, we invite you to read the musings of an administrator by checking out "Principal Reflections" from Principal Bill Carozza.

Summer is coming…and it’s coming faster than normal. Of course, I’m not referring to New Hampshire weather - I’m not sure when we’re going to see even seasonal temperatures, but I can tell you that the last day of school is only six weeks from today. Due to no snow days this school year (perhaps a first in my memory) parents need to be thinking soon about their little ones’ schedules for June,...
