Message to Scholars from our Community Neighbors
Scholars, our neighbors have shared concerns about the unsafe driving happening after school. For the safety of our community, we ask that you obey the speed limits each day. In order to keep our community safe, the Minnetonka police will have parked patrol cars monitoring the side streets to help reduce reckless driving.
A limited number of yearbooks are still available at jostensyearbooks.com until May 25 (or until we run out).
Yearbook distribution for all scholars who have purchased one will take place during all lunches on Wednesday, May 31st and Thursday, June 1. (The same dates as the Cap and Gown Pick-Up). Any remaining yearbooks will still be available for $85 (cash or check) during those times.

Donations Needed: Year-End Staff Celebration
The end of the school year is right around the corner. Before we say our goodbyes we are asking for your support one last time to honor ALL the staff and teachers in the Hopkins School District! All 1300 district employees have been invited to attend a year-end party on June 8 and will be treated to food, music, prizes, and fun! The district cannot use taxpayer funds to pay for this celebration, so in order to make this happen, we are asking for families to donate money and items, and to borrow lawn games.
