HSHMC Summer 2020 Information

We look forward to all our HSHMC students joining in with us this summer. We are offering several enrichment courses, including Spanish and Integrated Art, which are both required courses needed to graduate from HSHMC. Since we do not always offer these two courses during the regular school year, summer school is a great time to help students meet these requirements. In addition, we are excited to offer cooking and PE classes, along with many other courses. Please be sure your child signs up this week!

The pre-recorded graduation ceremony to honor our seniors will be released for viewing on Monday, June 8 at 5:00 pm. And, the pre-recorded promotion celebration for our 8th graders will be released on Tuesday, June 9 at 5:00 pm. We hope your family and loved ones will enjoy sharing in this special time with all of us.

If you have not already done so, please use our online registration to complete the paperwork required to register your child for the 2020-2021 school year. This will confirm your enrollment for next year and verify that we have current contact information. If you need assistance, please call 619-528-9070 and Ms. Rivas will help you with complete the online registration. If you know other families who have children interested in joining our HSHMC family, we are still accepting applications for the 2020-21 school year. Applications are available on our website.

Remember, I am available online via Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday at 12:00 pm and 5:30 pm. To reach me there, simply register from our website under Chief's Office Hours and I will send you the link to join in.

Have a great week! Thank you.
