Happy Friday!

Hello HHES Families,

We hope you all had a wonderful first week back after our holiday break! It was fun to connect with students and listen to all the fun things they experienced over break.

January is School Board Appreciation Month. We are so thankful to our School Board members and all they do for our schools and our Hockinson community.

This month we have our science fair on Friday, January 20th. We hope you will join us for this fun event! We also have report cards going home at the end of the month.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mr. Robertson & Mrs. Colpron

Would you consider hosting a student club and/or activity?

Being involved in school is an important part of a student's experience. We would love to offer our HHES students more opportunities to be involved in after school clubs. We need your help to make this happen.

If you are willing to host a club, but need help deciding on an activity to share with students, we can help! Would you be willing to host a Pokemon club, Magic club, chess club, board game club? Perhaps fly fishing is something you're interested in, would you be willing to share that with students? We could have a book club, sewing club, origami club, or pen pal club... Do you speak a different language? Would you be willing to teach a group of students? The opportunities are endless!

* Clubs will start the week of February 6th and will run for 4-6 weeks

* Clubs will run one day a week from 2:20 pm - 3:20 pm on Mondays or Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays.

* If you are interested in adjusting your meeting time and meeting more than once a week, we will figure out a plan to accommodate you.

All volunteers will be required to adhere to HSD volunteer guidelines.

With your support, we would love to offer these opportunities to our Hockinson Community.

If you have any questions, please email bess.colpron@hocksd.org or call Bess Colpron at (360) 448-6420
