Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Dear Hoppin Family,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal at Hoppin Elementary.  

I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year!  As I have been preparing for the upcoming school year, I have kept the mission of Hoppin in the forefront: We are focused on learning for all students at a high level.  We are committed to working together as a team in ways like never before to achieve this goal.

The staff at Hoppin clearly live by this mission as has been evident in my many conversations with them.  I look forward to fostering these relationships and working with parents, staff, and students to provide a world-class educational experience for each child.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than eleven years.  With my experiences teaching various grade levels and coaching teachers, I feel my skills as an educator will be an asset to partnering with you to ensure your child’s success.

All of us at Hoppin are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant and builds relationships. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment. 

My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!  I hope to meet you at Open House on August 31st from 5:00-7:00pm where you will also have the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher.  


Allison Taylor, Principal
