Every Student! Every Day!

This week is teacher appreciation week! I cannot thank you enough for the contributions from each of you this year! For a year full of challenges and change, you have been a blessing to your students! Thanks for all you do to make HJHS a great school for all students and each other!


We have made it to May! Our last 19 days give us an opportunity to finish strong. This week we must maintain structures and order in our week of testing. Students need consistency. We all need to focus on Finishing Strong! Using time wisely is imperative! Avoiding mediocrity is hard when we are tired and see our break so close. Dig deep, depend on each other to find a way to work as hard as you did at the beginning of the year.


We must model, demonstrate by example that we truly believe:

1. Everyday is an opportunity to learn and grow - ourselves and our students.

2. Our time at school is valuable and should not be wasted! Summer is for wasting time!

3. We believe that all students can learn, and we will do whatever it takes to help them!



Have a great week of learning!

Testing Season Has Arrived!!

* The correct schedule for testing has been attached with the Weekend Update email. Thanks to my eagle eye friends for catching the type-o!


* While testing remember you should circulate around the room. This is serious and test security is important. If you need help with behavior issues, then check with one of the administrators.



* Make sure you read the directions verbatim.


* We will have daily prizes and treats for students who come in prepared, on time, and ready to start testing! Please keep a record of the students who bring their laptops, chargers, and are on time every day. We will recognize/reward these students!


* Let us know if you have needs or concerns during testing. We are here to support you!
