SATs during COVID

posted Sep 27, 2020, 8:46 PM by HSD Principal

It's been a while since I've made a post here, but I need to give a big thanks to Linda for organizing and running two back-to-back weekends of SAT testing during COVID quarantine. Running those exams is stressful during any time, but the added expectations and restrictions that quarantine has added just compound the task. 

Thanks also to Seth who is helping to proctor the exams.

Thanks for everyone's work on Ministry Day last week. We could not have done everything without you.

A big thanks to Maddy for holding down the fort and being OIC while I was away last week. I appreciated her handling the things that came into the office during Outdoor Ed.

Thanks to Dennis Chow and ExCo Ministry Chairs Michelle Ishak and Asher Schultz for planning and running SEW activities last week.

They won't read this, but I want to thank our facilities crew, Sodexo workers, and our construction contractors who teamed up to make sure campus was clean after the Taal eruption so we could return to classes.

He would teach Woods.

He kept a pretty low profile this semester, so many of you may not have noticed him much. But I want to thank Simon Lovatt for being willing to step into teaching Woods classes this semester. It would have been a shame not to be able to offer any industrial arts classes this year, so I appreciate his service.

A few senior boys even made a custom couch for their hallway thanks to his help!

Some of you missed this, but I thought it was worth sharing again. Here are the responses to the student gratitude survey that was administered in homeroom. The bigger words are answers that were given more often.

Anne Frank

I really hope you got the chance to see The Diary of Anne Frank last week. The show was phenomenal and our students pulled off something incredible. A huge thanks to the emotional investment of Crystal for working with the class through the semester. Thanks also to Steven and the Cadd crew for the many many hours put in over the past month to make this a show to remember.

Blood Drive

Thanks to Carolyn and NHS for sponsoring our blood drive this week. If I remember correctly, we donated almost 40 units - although a surprisingly high number of people were turned away for low hemoglobin counts. I guess we all need to eat more spinach. 

Busy Days

Two staff members had super busy days this past week:
  • Thanks to Sunny for all her organization and running around to pull off the university fair on Monday.
  • And thanks to Josh Manthe (and assistant to the AD Garrett) for organizing and running two soccer tournaments and a middle school volleyball tournament on campus all on the same weekend.
