    01/03/2023

    HHS Parents/Guardians, 
    I hope you had a great break and a Happy New Year! We are excited to have you back on campus! Just a few updates for this semester:
     
    *Spring 2023 Final Exam Exemptions-(see attached) Be sure to review the eligibility criteria for Spring 2023 Final Exam Exemptions. You will see that (3) Tardies equals ONE absence for exemption purposes. Every student is eligible for at least ONE exemption. ONLY extenuating circumstances will be considered. Please review the attached document. Forms will be announced to pick up at a later date. 
     
    *Absences/Tardies-Students need to be in class at least 90% of the time in order to receive credit for your classes. Be sure that you are in class and IF you are in the hallway, you need to have a pass. 
     
    *Spring End of Course Testing Dates:
         -English 1-April 18th
         -English 2-April 20th
         -US History-May 3rd
         -Biology-May 4th
         -Algebra I-May 9th
     
    *Student Data Trackers-(see attached) IF you or your student is in an End of Course tested course (English I, English II, Biology, US History, Algebra I) then they have begun completing these forms for their teacher. I wanted to share a copy in order for you to see how students are reflecting on their learning from the assessments they are taking in these classes. Our teacher teams are working very hard to improve our instruction and improve our academics and this has shown teachers where students are showing deficiencies or showing where they are mastering the content. Additionally, this gives the teachers more insight as to "WHY" the student chose a particular answer so that this reason can be addressed in their instruction. This is just a general copy as they are specific to the aforementioned EOC course. 
     
    *Secondary Grading Guidelines-(see attached) As we begin the spring semester, you will need to ensure that you are completing work and that you turn work in a timely manner, according to the Secondary Grading Guidelines. 
     
    *National/State Scholarship Information from Texas Comptroller's office-(see link) For the most up-to-date national/state scholarships and college/university information see this link: https://comptroller.texas.gov/programs/education/msp/
     
    *Local Scholarships-(see link on HISD website) Be sure to check the website to get updates and also with your Counselor and the College/Career Counselor, Dawn Shaw-https://www.huntsville-isd.org/Page/773
     
    *Prom 2023-May 13th, Orange Ballroom, SHSU's LSC Building
     
    *Graduation for Class of 2023-May 27th, 10am, SHSU Coliseum
     
    *Big Future Scholarships with College Board-see this link to sign up for the monthly drawing of scholarships and your chance to win a $40,000 scholarship. NO GPA/Rank requirements. Just complete a task to prepare for your future. Entries are NOW open for Class of 2023, Class of 2024, & Class of 2025. https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/pay-for-college/bigfuture-scholarships

We will send out more reminders about this beginning January 9th, but for safety reasons we need ALL student drivers to register their vehicle and obtain a parking pass to be on campus. 
     
    *Updated campus maps-(see attached) Please review the attached updated parking maps for students/staff/visitors. If you have any questions, please reach out to us. 
     
    *CKH January Theme-“Honor YOU, Honor ME”(Respect)-We will be working on this theme for the month of January with our students and staff
    What is Respect?
    Respect is the willingness and ability to act professionally and thoughtfully with ourselves and others. Leaders can deal respectfully with opposition and provide space for both dignity and differences to coexist. 
     
    Why focus on Respect?
    • Respect contributes to a positive culture. People feel safe, supported, and engaged in the context of thoughtful social, emotional, civic, and intellectual interactions.
    • Respect decreases conflict. Respect helps us, and others, to be able to express ourselves without fear of being judged, humiliated, or discriminated against.
    • Respect encourages empathy. Respect helps us to understand each other and put ourselves in someone else shoes.

    *Classes resume on Thursday, January 5th. 

    Thank you for your continued support of HHS!

    Responsibility is the willingness and ability to take ownership of our thoughts, words, and actions. We have a responsibility to our school, family, and community to be accountable for our choices and how they impact ourselves and others.  
     
    Why focus on Responsibility?
    • Responsibility teaches resilience. It is not possible to persevere and achieve our dreams without taking personal responsibility seriously.
    • Responsibility empowers us to own our actions. There is great power in being able to make conscious, calculated choices to reach goals and manage those things in our control. 
    • Responsibility teaches us to manage our time and resources. Responsibly organizing and prioritizing needs is an executive function of the brain that improves with practice.

    HHS Parents/Guardians,

    Huntsville HS will be hosting a "Substance Use Awareness" presentation on Monday, November 14th, 6pm-7pm in the HHS Commons, conducted by Stephanie Duer, M.A., LPC-S, who currently serves as the Mental Health Outreach Specialist for Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare and Region 6 Service Center.

    • HHS Parents/Guardians, 

      *Importance of Attending classes-HHS students are subject to being in attendance for ALL their classes at least 90% of the time to be physically in the classroom in order to receive credit for the class. If a student is marked absent it is because one of two things has occurred: 1) they are absent for the day, 2) a student is more than 10 minutes late for the class. IF a student is participating in an extra-curricular activity, then their coach/sponsor will communicate the roster of students that attended that event, then their attendance will be corrected. 

      *3rd Six Weeks-November 18th is the deadline to turn in grades for Progress Reports. Students will receive their progress report the week we return from Thanksgiving Break. 

      *Chromebooks-it is imperative that students come to school with their chromebooks fully charged. We are in a new testing season that will require EVERY student to test online. Therefore, students will need their chromebooks. If you have more than one chromebook at home, then we need it returned ASAP as students are ONLY to be issued one chromebook. 

      *Thanksgiving Break-November 21st-25th

      *November 16th-ASVAB Test

    HHS Students, 

     
    *2nd Six Weeks Report card will go out Thursday, November 3rd
     
    *CKH November Theme-“Better Together”(Teamwork)-
    What is Teamwork?
    Teamwork is the ability to work in unity with others towards a common goal. For us to learn how to become team players, it is important that we learn to listen, encourage our peers, and allow and invite others to contribute their talents and skills.
     
    Why focus on Teamwork?
    • Teamwork improves communication: Teamwork helps us improves our verbal and non-verbal communication skills, conveying that we care and a relevant message. 
    • Teamwork builds interpersonal awareness: Growing a great team requires us to first build strong relationships through better understanding ourselves and others.
    • Teamwork celebrates diversity. Teamwork thrives from diverse ideas that come from a mixture of different genders, cultures, expertise, experience, and problem-solving approaches. 
    Teamwork in Action:
    • Call them a team, not a class or group. A group consists of many different people. A team, however, has a common purpose and a shared responsibility for success. 
    • Require teams to set expectations for and manage their own behavior. Do not tell teams what type of behavior is expected -- let them decide for themselves with a Social Contract. 
    • Teach and encourage affirmations. Giving affirmations helps connect the team and builds trust, promotes engagement, and boosts a positive culture.

    Self-Direction is the ability and learned skill to cast a vision of future goals and then take intentional steps toward who, where, and what we want to be.

    *Open House-Wednesday, August 24th (5pm-7pm) parents and guardians will have the opportunity to come and visit with your child's teachers. This will be a "come & go" event in order for you to be able to meet with them. They will discuss the classroom expectations with you and also discuss pertinent 2-way communication with you in an effort to create a bridge between the school and the home. 

    *Annual Title I, Parent Meeting-Wednesday, August 24th (5pm) in the library, I will present what Title I means for HHS and I will also share the Parent and Family  Engagement Policy. See attached agenda notification for the Title I meeting.

    *Child Nutrition Forms need to be completed-If you have already done so, please disregard, but those that have not already, please use the following link to complete your child nutrition form as soon as possible. http://www.myschoolapps.com/

    *Capturing Kids Hearts video-Please take the time to review the video that explains the CKH Process that we have begun here at HHS. https://vimeo.com/capturingkidshearts/theckhprocess

    *Child Nutrition Forms-Meals will NO LONGER be free for all students the 2022-2023 school year. Parents/Guardians MUST complete the application for be eligible for Free or Reduced meals. The socioeconomic forms collected each year serve a dual purpose, in addition to determining free and reduced lunch eligibility, they also impact campus funding. Huntsville HS and every other campus across the state, receive funding for special programs that provide instructional support for ALL our students based on data collected from these forms. The data remains confidential and is submitted to the Texas Education Agency in order to determine funding and campus accountability measures. IN ESSENCE, YOUR COMPLETION OF THE SOCIOECONOMIC FORM CAN GREATLY IMPACT THE FUNDING AND RESOURCES REQUIRED TO ASSIST ALL OUR STUDENTS IN THEIR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT. 
    We are expecting 100% participation in completion of the form and it is vital that you complete ALL sections of the form including the household income portion of the form. An incomplete form is considered void. Even if you are sure your student(s) will not qualify for free or reduced lunches, the completion of the form assists our campus in so many ways. Access to the 22-23 application opens on July 30th, 2022. To access the form use the following link to the Child Nutrition Services page and HELP ALL STUDENTS SUCCEED AT HHS: https://www.huntsville-isd.org/meals
