We believe in the Hopkins Promise.


Meet Chris LaTondresse

“Let’s start a conversation
about the future of our district”

I’m running for Hopkins School Board because I believe in the Hopkins Promise.

It’s the idea that no matter where you’re from, the money your parents make, or the color of your skin, when you walk through the doors of our schools you’re going to get a world class education.

Every opportunity I’ve had in life, as a husband, father, and citizen can be traced back to that promise — from kindergarten at Alice Smith Elementary to graduating from Hopkins High School. My mom taught in the district for over 20 years. This place has given me, my family, and so many others, so much.

As your new Hopkins School Board member, you can count on me to put that promise at the center of every decission I make on behalf of our kids, our schools, and our community.

Thank you for the opportunity to grow and dream together.
