We are currently presenting in several counties in Florida.  If interested please contact us :)​​

  Classroom whole grade teachers, Alpha, STEM and Gifted teachers LOVE US for their 1st - 8th grade students. 

Our proven success of  this program is supported by teachers, principals, school districts and grant foundations across Florida. 

Hops Events can also be used by businesses, organizations, church groups and faculty groups as a team building/leadership activity.

What are the benefits for my students?

Our activities are specially designed to enhance a student's team working skills, creative problem solving strategies, reading comprehension, and following written and verbal directions precisely.

HoPS Activities are presented to help increase a student's performance as efficient information managers, resource managers,  communicators, effective leader and team workers.

We also provide certificates for each student along with take home goodies.  Stickers for teams achieving top scores for the challenges are also awarded.                                       So good sportsmanship is also practiced:)

Our program emphasizes the desired thinking skills necessary for test success!

Where are HoPS Events held?

We will need a large venue such as a Media Center, Multi Purpose Room, or a close-by community venue, with enough tables for the challenges.

A few Volunteers are needed.   Join the fun!

What is HoPS?
