Hopewell Elementary School holds an annual Day of Service on the Friday before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, joining a tradition of honoring this holiday as a time of service to the community. Each grade level at HES supported a community service partner by engaging in a hands-on project to benefit their organization.
