HSHMC is planning a free trip this fall to KNOTT’S BERRY FARM for all HSHMC students who are fully vaccinated! How to participate: If you are already fully vaccinated, please provide us with proof of vaccination to join in. Get fully vaccinated at HSHMC on Wednesday, July 7 and July 28. Get fully vaccinated on your own before school starts. We hope that all of our students will be fully vaccinated before attending HSHMC in the fall. In addition, Sharp will allow our students back at the hospital for internships as long as they are fully vaccinated. All other internships will be dependent on vaccinations as well. One of the best things we can do is encourage and help everyone who is eligible for the vaccine to get one. Sharp HealthCare has agreed to come back to HSHMC to provide another opportunity for you to have your HSHMC student (ages 12 and up) and your family vaccinated and will be here to administer the Pfizer vaccine as follows: Wednesday, July 7 (1st Vaccination Date) – 8:30 – 1:30 Wednesday, July 28 (2nd Vaccination Date) – 8:30 – 1:30 Please make your appointment NOW by going to: https://myturn.ca.gov Minor Consent Form When making your appointment, simply use our zip code 92105 for the area you want to get your vaccination in and our school site will pop up with available appointments for July 28. Your appointment for the second required vaccination on July 28 will be scheduled when you receive your first vaccination on July 7. (Walk-in appointments are also available – but scheduled appointments are preferred) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ¡HSHMC está planeando un viaje gratis este otoño a KNOTT’S BERRY FARM para todos los estudiantes de HSHMC que están completamente vacunados!

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
June 6th, 2021- Weekly School Bulletin Please note that although the Cuyamaca college classes have been completed, students must still attend their college classes this week as usual. The last day of school is Tuesday, June 15. All classes will be asynchronous so students can be sure that they have completed and turned in all their work. At this point, if your child is carrying an “I” (Incomplete) in any course, they could be at risk of failing by the end of quarter four if they do not act immediately to clear the incomplete. Any student with an incomplete at the end of the school year will be mandated to summer school until all incompletes are clear. Summer school will be in person at HSHMC and begins on Monday, June 21. If your child has signed up to take a college class during the summer, please watch for an email that contains a college registration form that you need to fill out and sign online asap.

The Zoom link is available on our website. I can also be reached by email anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you. Have a great week.
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).
