Contests

Interested in entering writing contests?  Art contests?  Click the link to view a Google Doc of contests.  If you find something that interests you, notify your English teacher to tell him or her that you are participating.  Check the entry rules--you might need to include a teacher's name (your English teacher)--but only do so once you have informed your English teacher that you are participating in the contest.

Hopkins Reads

About this program:

This is the pilot year (2017-2018) of Hopkins Reads, which is our new independent reading program that we are still developing.  Our goal is to create a culture of reading at Hopkins through a standards-based, choice-driven, engaging program. 
          As we begin to implement this program, each classroom will be trying different pieces and each quarter will build on the last.

 

Objective

The purpose of Hopkins Reads is to:

  • Promote literacy through outside reading to enrich the classroom discourse  
  • Develop and strengthen independent reading skills
  • Empower students to choose different styles of writing and genres
  • Improve writing by reading a variety of books
