MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT ANNIE McKENZIE
I would like to congratulate the class of 2015. It has been a pleasure witnessing your many individual and collective achievements this year in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, and in the community. Thank you for making Hopkins Academy an exceptional institution. Every member of the class deserves recognition; however, I would like to specifically recognize Valedictorian, Drew Castronovo and Salutatorian, Phoebe Blaisdell. I would also like to thank the class officers: President, Allyson Huntoon; Vice President, Zachary Kelley; Secretary, Marianna Ring; and Treasurer, Hannah Kennedy. Your leadership contributed greatly to a wonderful senior year. I wish the class of 2015 the best. I know a bright future awaits each one of you.

Coins for A's
Coins for A’s is a program in which the American Numismatic Association (ANA) awards coins to students who have earned three or more A’s during the latest school marking period. ANA accepts any equivalent to an “A” grade for our program. The student simply sends a copy of their report card to the ANA headquarters and ANA sends the student a world coin along with a congratulatory letter asking the student to learn as much about the country the coin came from. Every time that a student is eligible, the student may repeat the process and ANA will send a different world coin. There is never a cost involved and when a student earns his or her first coin, ANA will send to the youngster an application for a free 6 month membership to the ANA.
ANA currently has well over 800 students enrolled in the program on a national level. Parents have personally commented how much they enjoy the program as it promotes academic excellence. Please be sure that no information about the student is shared. ANA shreds report cards after verifying a student’s eligibility.
Thanks to the efforts of Annie McKenzie and Brian Beck- we will be able to send two of our students to Boys State. Spencer Butterfield and Thomas Kowal- Safron will be representing Hopkins Academy at Stonehill College June 13th- 19th. Spencer and Thomas will be speaking with you to finalize their exam schedules.
Congratulations to Thomas Kowal-Safron who will receive recognition
in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program in the fall.
