Hopkins Middle School 2022-2023

Welcome Back Eagle Families!

Greetings Eagle Families,


The 2022-2023 school year will be an amazing experience where we will empower our students to lead. As we plan and prepare for the new school year, our expectations are that we will show significant improvements in all content areas, athletics, and the arts. For such improvement to take place, we (students, parents, teachers, staff, and community) must ALL work together and operate with a sense of urgency as we work to address the learning slide for students and create a pathway for students to achieve optimal success.


I strongly believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and I am glad that we play an integral part in that village. Let us continue to keep our students the primary focus of our work as we continue to excel in academics, athletics, and the arts. We respect one another, value each other, and care for each other. Let’s Get Ready to Soar!


Tdap Vaccination


The Tdap vaccine is required for ALL students entering the 7th grade. A valid SC Certificate of Immunization must be presented to Hopkins Middle School prior to the first day of school.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

At Hopkins Middle School, we have implemented a book study on

the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.

The 7 Habits are:

Habit 1: Be Proactive: I am in charge of my actions and attitude.
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind: I set goals.
Habit 3: Put First Things First: I work, then play. I prioritize tasks based on my goals.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win: I seek compromise and alternatives when necessary. I can advocate respectfully for my beliefs while also considering others.
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood: I listen to understand rather than to respond or share my thoughts.
Habit 6: Synergize: Together is better.
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw: I take care of myself physically and emotionally.
