June 13th, 2021- Weekly School Bulletin This Tuesday, June 15 is the last day of school. All classes will be asynchronous and there will be no in person teaching on campus. Please be sure your child has completed and turned in all their work. At this point, if your child is carrying an “I” (Incomplete) in any course, they are at risk of failing if they do not clear their incomplete. Any student with an incomplete at the end of the school year will be mandated to summer school until all incompletes are clear. We will be collecting all the technology loaned to all 9th – 11th grade students during the school year unless they are attending summer school. If your child is not attending summer school (or returning to HSHMC next year) please return the Macbook Air, Chromebook (if you have not yet returned it), and any other technology checked out to you by HSHMC, during our drive by return technology event this Wednesday and Thursday, June 16 and 17 between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm. Summer school will be in person at HSHMC and begins next Monday, June 21. If your child has been assigned to or registered for summer school their schedules are available in PowerSchool. In addition, we will be mailing home schedules mid-week once grades have been finalized and we determine who must attend academic recovery due to incompletes. We will also reach out to you by phone should your child be mandated to Academic Recovery during summer school. Senior Graduation for the Class of 2021 will be held is this Tuesday at Liberty Station. Tickets are limited to 3 tickets per graduate. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow admission to anyone without a ticket. However, the graduation ceremony will be live-streamed directly from our website so that all family, friends, and our HSHMC community will be able to watch and celebrate our graduates. Thank you for a wonderful year and for your partnership as we successfully made our way through a unique and challenging year together. Have a great week.

MS. KOSAKA SUPPORTS STUDENTS AND HER COLLEAGUES! Kristen is a new Educational Specialist at HSHMC. She's currently serving as a case manager for students with IEPs, holding meetings for her students, and working with incoming students and their families. She works closely with so many amazing educators, including Mr. Kennedy and the special education team as they work through out the IEP process. Everyone at HSHMC, including the students, have been so helpful and welcoming! Each day brings new adventures from collaborating with colleagues to supporting students with coursework. Helping students clear their incomplete grades are the top priority for Kristen at this time. As a new staff member, she is eager to build family and student connections. "I’ve enjoyed both distance learning and in-person learning but truly enjoy working with the students in-person. We learn so much from each other during our time together and it helps foster a positive relationship with them." -Kristen Kosaka "Just about everyone walks into a job not knowing what to do. Some of us are fortunate to have someone around to lean-on, vent to, problem-solve, and collaborate with. Well, I’m one of those FORTUNATE ONES! Thank you Kristen!" -Brian Kennedy

2021-06-04T18:08:35+00:00

MARISA ENSURES COLLEGE SUCCESS! Ms. Peña has been busy this semester! She supports 5 college courses: Public Speaking (COMM 122), Substance Abuse & Public Health (HED 203), History of Hip Hop Culture (MUS 123), US History: Chicano Perspectives (HIST 119), and Politics & Political Analysis (POSC 120). She loves witnessing the students learn and make connections in each of these courses. Ms. Peña begins each weekly module with a tour of the course's webpage, weekly assignments, and announcements. Students are then placed in small groups or independently in break-out rooms. Many of the college courses this semester have required students to demonstrate their knowledge in writing. Ms. Peña works together with the students to deconstruct the prompts into smaller, more manageable pieces. She also supports students to learn how to approach higher education including things like building relationships with professors and learning what it means when an assignment is "weighted". Emma stands out for her performance in Public Speaking. Her poise and confidence shined, and was recognized by her peers and Professor Chambers. In the Hip Hop class, Ms. Peña asked Ezekiel Ayala Beltran if he wanted her to rap an answer to him. He said "no" (with a giggle).

2021-05-27T17:32:00+00:00

EDDIE SUPPORTS STUDENTS AS THEY EXPLORE COLLEGE! Eddie is one of our school counselors and part of his role for Quarter 4 is to help students on campus with academic recovery. He also has been staying busy keeping up with the Class of 2021 as they make college and career decisions and apply for financial aid and scholarships. Eddie enjoys reaching out to parents to work on plans for improving student attendance or academic performance. One big success that both Naimo and Eddie had recently was a college info session for 11th graders and their families, where over 80 people attended on Zoom (they even "broke" Jamboard because there were too many participants trying to join)! They were able to address students’ and families’ anxieties about going to college and help them differentiate myths from the realities of college. "I really enjoy working at HSHMC and serving the diverse community, especially working with students and parents whose stories are similar to my own."

VANESSA IS ALWAYS READY TO LISTEN! Vanessa is our School Social Worker. To support students she checks in with them during their class time on Zoom in breakout rooms, through texts and phone calls, as well as in person since we have been on campus. She always tries to make sure the students feel comfortable to talk to her about whatever is on their mind, be it school-related or not, so she can best support their social-emotional needs and hopefully get them more engaged in their academics as a result of that connection. "I enjoy getting to know the students and building positive relationships with them! Each student I have been able to talk to has their own story to tell, and I love hearing what they have to say.." One of our students recently told Ms. Casanova: "I'm happy there is someone at school I can talk to if I need to."

JULIETA PROVIDES WORK EXPERIENCE OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS! Julieta is the 11th/12th grade transition counselor, working one-on-one with students through their transition goals. These include aspirations, wants, needs, and connecting students with outside resources in order to provide the best support system to help them accomplish their goals in the near future. She just completed her Master's Degree this May at SDSU in Rehabilitation Counseling where she needed to fulfill 450 hours of supervised, direct service/support. Because of HSHMC she fulfilled her final round of hours and was able to graduate and continue to help serve our students/community. Julieta feels proud of all her students and how much they have grown and benefited throughout the transition support services both Julieta and Ms. Fischmann provide. One student that stands out is Daniel! He is one of 20 participants throughout the We Can Work grant who is working as a store associate at a 3-D printing gaming/graphic design studio. He is working on applying to San Diego City College to continue learning and growing in the Graphic Design field with the help of Julieta and Mr Beam. "I absolutely love working at HSHMC! The amount of support and appreciation throughout the faculty is phenomenal. The family-oriented environment from everyone continues to make my day!" - Julieta
