Important Information From Mrs. Klaehn

February 10, 2021

During break, I hope you will consider one (or several) of these brain-breaks!

  • watch a really good movie
  • read a book, even if it's just your favorite childhood picture book
  • get outside for some fresh air
  • try something new, perhaps a winter activity or an obscure food
  • make something, like a piece of artwork or a structure, or even a meal
  • send mail through the USPS to someone else...it should be handwritten
  • help someone else with a chore
  • break up with your phone for a few hours
  • practice 10 seconds of gratitude every day

Can't wait to see you well-rested and full of stories on 2/22 and 2/23!

~Mrs. Klaehn

I want to hear your voice!

This document contains our current HCS Secondary Student Dress Code. This Dress Code has pretty much been the same for a very long time, and I think it's time for students to weigh in on it. If you would like to provide me with feedback on potential changes, suggestions or questions on our Dress Code to be reflected in the 2021-2022 Student Handbook, please make a copy of this document, add your comments or suggestions (if you write in the document, I suggest using a different color so I don't miss it), and share it back with me: aklaehn@honeoye.org . I will accept feedback on this document up until March 1, 2021.

Teacher of the Month

Want to nominate one of your teachers for Teacher of the Month? Use this form to identify a teacher who goes above and beyond for their students! I tell them they're amazing all the time, but it's more meaningful when it comes from YOU. See past recipients below:

November: Mr. Stewart

December: Mr. Buckley

January: Mrs. Rose

Please complete the form by Tuesday, February 23rd so I can announce this month's recipient at our Faculty Meeting!

Not New But Still Important!

True BLUE Bulldogs

We are always watching you (in this case, I mean this in a good way)! Staff members and I are frequently on the lookout for students who demonstrate the following traits:

  • bravery,
  • leadership,
  • understanding, and
  • empathy.

We look for these traits in your academic endeavors, your social interactions, and your day-to-day actions and attitudes. When we spot it, I send a letter home to your family so we can celebrate you, and I add a blue paw to the bulletin board outside the office. If you see a peer demonstrating these traits, please let me know, and I'll acknowledge them, too!

We aren't motivated to be good people because we want recognition for it, but it's still nice to be noticed!

Google Meet Expectations

There are 2 slides here, which I hope you will review. This is important for our 100% Remote learners, but also for our students who occasionally need to jump on to a lesson's Google Meet. It's also important to remember that, if we have to go 100% Remote again sometime this school year (we certainly don't want to, but we need to be prepared), the expectation will be that students are attending Google Meets and participating. We currently have, and will continue to have, traditional grading, and participation and work count!

Motivational Music

This is a new song to me, but I kind of like it. Have a listen, or don't. The choice is yours!
