End of the Year Information

  • There is no school on Monday, June 20 in observance of Juneteenth.

  • Tuesday, June 21 & Wednesday, June 22 will be early release days at the high school only (12 pm dismissal). Therefore, if a student rides the bus, it will leave the HS at the normal dismissal time of 2:25 pm, so please plan accordingly!

  • Thursday, June 23 will be a ‘make-up day’ at the HS for any student who needs to make something up. Please note, students will not need to come into the building on June 23 unless they have something to make up for one of their classes and have scheduled it with their teachers.

  • Final grades will be available to view in PowerSchool by 3 pm on Monday, June 27.

Parking

Juniors: Please note a change in parking for next week. The HPTO is sponsoring a carnival on school grounds starting Thursday. However, the setup starts this weekend. They will be taking over all of the senior lot and the staff lot for their setup.


Therefore, students must park either in the water towers lot (if you are assigned there) or any of the lots down loop road (e.g., H, J & K). Staff will be parking in the old bus loop and the tennis courts.


Sophomores: As a reminder, you are not able to park on campus without a sticker for this year.

Juneteenth

HHS junior Danielle Vundla prepared this song as part of a Juneteenth celebration and wanted to share it. Thank you and great job, Danielle!

Helping and Caring

We are a group of three students, Demyana Youssif, Sanova Karim, and Ines Aqdim, and have created a website for our Civics project. We created a website providing information on how to help the homeless. Our website consists of multiple different items and information such as ways to help people who are currently on the verge of going homeless or people who have already lost their home and need to seek help. We as well have additional information such as organizations in which one may join if interested in helping the homeless; as well as charities and places where individuals may donate money or items. We also have our contact information, the founders of the website, if further information is needed. Lastly, we have ways people without homes can find help and get resources such as clothes, food, etc. Our goal is to educate others on homelessness, so they are aware of what homeless people need and how to reduce the number of homeless people.

Imagine Corps - Free Summer Cohort July 25-28

Imagine Corps is an innovation learning and community service program where teens learn and practice valuable creative problem-solving and collaborative innovation skills for success in school, work, and life. They are then paired with a non-profit with an identified challenge that will benefit from their inspired energy, creative spirit, and youthful insight.


The 2022 summer cohort in Hopkinton is:

• 100% sponsored by the Wright Brothers Institute.

• Limited -- as each cohort will have only 8-10 students. The 4 students in Hopkinton will learn and invent with students from Dayton, Ohio, while another cohort of students from Martha's Vineyard will do so with students from St. Thomas.

• A "live on-line" program facilitated by experienced practitioners and trainers.

• An opportunity to learn, creatively tackle personal challenges, and work with the Institute founder and your cohort to "Explore & Imagine Your IDEAL Future of Hybrid Work” (virtual and in-person)


The Hopkinton/Dayton Cohort will engage in:

• a 12-hr training and invention workshop the afternoons of July 25-28

• followed by two 2-hr concept refinement and coaching sessions, and

• culminating with a Virtual "Concept Jam" on Aug 8 for Imagine Corps students, mentors, challenge owners, and local stakeholders.
