Gratitude Gifts Share the Love

Gratitude Gifts were delivered just before Winter Break. This sweet thank you to teachers, coaches, principals, paraprofessionals – ANY Hopkins Public Schools staff –  is such a great reminder that they are appreciated for the hard work they do every day. As you can see, the hand-delivered custom cupcakes from Amy’s Cupcake Shoppe and the personal notes, were very much enjoyed.



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 next year. 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 HERE!
