It's HSHMC Spirit week this week! Each day will have a spirited theme. We are excited to celebrate with our students and see what they come up with to join in the virtual fun.
Monday – Proud to be a Surgeon Day (Wear Surgeon Gear, Facemasks, Scrubs)
Tuesday – Tacky Tourist Tuesday (Hawaiian Shirts, Nerd Attire, Mismatch)
Wednesday – Wacky Hat Wednesday (Baseball Caps, Beanies, Fedoras, Bucket Hats, etc)
Thursday – Throwback Thursday (Roaring 20's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's 90's, early 2000's)
Friday – Freaky Friday (Wear Halloween Makeup, Masks, Costumes, etc)
Our first quarter ends this Friday, October 30.At this point, if your child is carrying an "I" (Incomplete) in any course, they could be at risk of failing the quarter. Please check your child's grades in PowerSchool to be sure they are completing their assignments on time and have a plan to finish with a passing grade by Friday. If you have not already made a parent account in PowerSchool and need help, please contact the school at 619-528-9070.
By now you should have received a letter in the mail from our CEO with important information about HSHMC's plans to remain in distance learning for quarter 2. If you did not receive the letter, a copy is posted on our website.
If your child is interested in taking an elective for quarter 2, please be sure they have filled out the request form that was emailed to them last week. If you need the link to the form, it can be found on our website as part of this bulletin.
We will be handing out supplies for quarter 2 classes this Thursday and Friday from 8:30 am to 10:00 am outside at HSHMC (with social distance measures in place). You can pick up on either day, whatever is best for you and your family. If your child has supplies that are required for their quarter 2 classes, you will receive a call and your child will be sent an email. If you do not receive a notification from us, that just means that your child already has everything they need for their classes and there is no need to come by the school at this time.
Next week, on Tuesday, November 3, in honor of election day, HSHMC will be observing "A Day of Civic Engagement." We are very excited about this important and historic day. Rather than attending their regular classes next Tuesday, students will be invited to engage in a series of Zoom sessions related to the history of voting and discussions on various current propositions on the 2020 ballot. The schedule for the sessions and the Zoom links will be made available to students in advance of our very special day.
If you have questions, or just want to touch base, I am holding Principal's Office Hours via Zoom at 9:00 am on Tuesday and Thursday this week. The Zoom link is available on our website. I can also be reached by email anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay well and have a great week, thank you!
