HEF’s Mission Continues – Passes $3 Million Benchmark
Undaunted by the current pandemic and the shift to distance learning, Hopkins staff and students continue to innovate and generate BIG ideas. Virtual grant presentations were made for $19,588 to four staff grants HERE (in addition to the $3,184 presented to student clubs through The Awesome Fund grants earlier this spring).
Student growth is the focus of this grant cycle, which also includes a $50,000 COVID-19 inspired boost to HEF’s Pathways to a Healthy Future, the HEF district-wide initiative in support of the whole student (more HERE).
Students Are Awesome
We hope you are well!
A few quick updates from HEF:
Royal Family Fun Day has been cancelled – look for this fun event to return next spring 2021.
Spring Gratitude Gifts have been cancelled – look for this campaign again next fall. In the mean time, maybe take a moment to thank your favorite staff members with a quick email.
Mark your calendar for Rock-n-Royal, Saturday, September 12. We’re betting that we’ll all be more than ready to gather at HEF’s annual Block Party.
Save the Date – Sat, Sept 12, 2020
HEF’s 7th annual Rock-n-Royal back-to-school event was a rousing success, with more than 420 attendees. Check out GREAT PHOTOS HERE. If you missed this epic block party featuring guaranteed (well, maybe not exactly guaranteed) beautiful weather, dancing in the streets to live music, delicious food and beverages, make sure to join us this year, when ‘social distancing’ will hopefully be behind us. The block in front of Hopkins Center for the Arts will again be full of HEF supporters, all coming together to kick off the school year, reconnect with old friends, and celebrate our community. More details coming this summer.
