AaronCongratulations to Aaron Newell, Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for August 2017!

Aaron was selected because he is the epitome of "world class." He is constantly "of service" to Hop Jack's guests and team members. Aaron is not only hard working but is known for bringing laughter & fun to the shifts he works. These are just a few of the reasons why Hop Jack’s in Lakeland Hills has selected Aaron for this special recognition!

Aaron began with Hop Jack's in July of 2016. He is trained in a variety of positons including dish, busser, host and most currently, server.

He is excellent at what he does and always wants to make sure guests return to Hop Jack’s, "not just because of how good the food is.” He truly cares and does what it takes to make a memorable, fun experience for everyone he serves.

When Aaron is off shift he enjoys an iced cold Hop Jack’s Wheat Beer with a BBQ Chicken Quesadilla and a juicy Western Burger. He grew up locally at Lake Tapps and spends his spare time, when he’s not working on his house, fishing and boating. He also enjoys backpacking and for the past 15 years has gone on backpacking trips with close family and friends.

Thank you and congratulations, Aaron for all you do for Hop Jack’s. We are better because of you!

Auburn Public Schools Foundation provides $10,000 for school programs in spring

"Six Auburn schools and thousands of students are benefiting this month from funding provided by the Auburn Public Schools Foundation.

The foundation funded three Turn the Page literacy grants totaling nearly $6,500. The grants are for upcoming projects at Lea Hill Elementary, Terminal Park Elementary, and West Auburn High School. These projects include upgrading the reading and writing curriculum materials available to the students there.

The language arts faculty at Auburn Mountainview High School received a $500 grant to enhance its Shakespeare unit for the incoming freshman class. The Seattle Shakespeare Company will visit the school next spring to conduct workshops as the classes study Romeo and Juliet.

Washington Elementary School was the recipient of more than $2,600 to purchase and install alternative seating options for its second-graders. These “wobble chairs” and other seating options have been shown to increase student focus by keeping them more physically engaged throughout the day.

The foundation also provided funding to several schools recently through the Pantry Project. Funded primarily through contributions from Hop Jack’s restaurant, the Pantry Project stocks participating schools with an on-hand supply of basic food, snack and hygiene materials for students in need.

Local residents can support the Pantry Project and at an upcoming fundraiser night at Hop Jack’s in Lakeland Hills from 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8. Ten percent of all food and beverage sales during the fundraiser will go toward funding the Pantry Project..."
