Hi.  My name is Tom Hoepfner.  The children and many of you may know me as "Mr. H."  I am currently the Health and Physical Education Teacher at Haines Lower Elementary School.  I am proud to have been a part of the Pemberton Township School District since 2001.

 I meet with all students two times over a 6 day period.  One class is a health class, while the other is a Physical Education "Gym" class. The Health classes deal with diverse topics such as safety, personal care, being a part of a family and community and many other aspects of personal and social Health.  For Gym classes, students are required to wear sneakers, as they support and protect the feet and allow students to perform the activities at their full potential.  Please try to be mindful of the day (A-F) that your child has Gym class, as due to space limitations, the nurse does not have sneakers available for students to change into.  Students may choose to keep a pair of sneakers in their locker in order to change into when necessary.

Character Education is an area of focus at Haines and is a large part of both of my curriculums and students receive instruction on the 5 character education traits of, respect, responsibility, integrity, perseverance and service.  If you have any questions or concerns or just want to introduce yourself, the best way to reach me is through e-mail at, or through the main office at extension 5000.

I look forward to an exciting 2017-2018 school year!
