9-12 October - Back for Q2

posted Oct 8, 2018, 4:39 AM by HSD Principal
Welcome back from October break. I hope you all had a restful week and feel ready to jump into second quarter. I was encouraged by your involvement and engagement during the inservice. Hopefully, we can keep up that momentum as we work together to help all of our students succeed this year.

We will not modify bell schedules this week, so Tuesday will start the quarter with odd blocks.

Tuesday for ASERT we will have a 15-minute HSD meeting in the lounge beginning at 1:40. At 2:00, all teaching staff will meet in the library to work on departmental documents.

Wednesday is the PSAT. All students in grades 10 and 11 will take the exam in the morning and will not be in class for blocks 2 and 4. Since Tipunan will be used for testing, HSD chapel will be in Cadd Theater on Wednesday.

Thursday during homeroom, Sandy will be giving a seminar on head injuries to all high school students in Tipunan. You are welcome to attend, but she will be giving a seminar for staff later in the month, so you will be getting more teacher-specific information at that time.

This weekend is the Dan Landry Tournament. Students will not miss class and it should not disrupt the school schedule. Just come out when you're able and cheer on our volleyball teams.

On Friday, I will be off campus with all the house leaders for a one-day retreat. We will spend time debriefing after first quarter and planning for the remainder of the year. They will be bringing around Planned Absence Forms in the next day or two.

Friday during activity period, ExCo will be running an assembly in Tipunan for all students new to high school to explain the service hour program and requirements. I will be off-campus, so I would appreciate a few teachers attending so the ExCo officers aren't on their own with 60 students.

Next week, the varsity teams will be traveling to their respective ACSC tournaments. Those athletes will be bringing around absence forms as well. They will have homework time scheduled into their trip, so feel free to send some work along with them. They will have the entirety of the following week to make up their missed work, so they should be caught up by 29 October.

If you didn't get around to filling out the First Quarter Reflection before break, please take a couple of minutes and do that now.

I am really glad to be working with you all this year. I hope working with our students inspires you.
