  • From the Principal's Desk: Week of September 18th

    Posted by Paul Mansingh at 9/17/2017

    Greetings Hercules High School!

    We hope that you all had a restful and enjoyable weekend! Have you been on our Hercules High School website? Check out all the upcoming events happening at Hercules!

    Thank you for your patience with the solar project occurring near the clock tower. There will still be construction going on in lower lot until they finish installing and connecting all the solar panels. We hope that they will have part of the area opened up at the end of this week to allow you to drop off and pick your kids.

    1st quarter progress reports will be going out September 21st to all students during 2nd period. Make sure you set up a time to review each of your child’s progress reports. It is also very beneficial to view PowerSchool each day for up to date grades and attendance. Please take this time to discuss the importance of passing each class with a “C” or better. Review your course syllabus for each class, check PowerSchool for missing or incomplete assignments, set aside time each night for your child to review classwork, complete homework and study for tests and or quizzes.

    Back To School Night is September 28th! We plan to kick off the night at 5:00pm with a parent technology workshop in the HS Cafeteria. Our staff will be able to assist you with logging on to PowerSchool, completing lunch applications, and participating in the parent technology survey. The cafeteria will be serving food and all items are on sale for only $1.00. The general assembly for Back To School Night will start at 5:30pm in the gym and will feature performances from our cheer squad and jazz dance performers.

    Our 1st School Site Council is October 19th at 4:00pm. These meetings are open to the public and we invite your participation. We have several openings in the site council this year that include the chairperson, vice chairperson and the secretary. School Site Council Election Ballots will be distributed at Back To School Night.

    Lifetouch Picture Re-take day is September 26th. There is a link to order picture packets on the school website.

    College Day is October 11th – All students will be participating in the SAT or some form of the SAT. 9th grade will have the Pre-PSAT, 10th and 11th grade will have the PSAT, and 12th grade will get the SAT. It is very important that we focus on preparing for this day, so all students will perform at their very best.

    If you plan to participate in a sport, you must complete an electronic version of the athletic participation form, available on the school website. All athletes will need to purchase an ASB card for $65.00. ASB cards cover all athletic participation costs, support the purchase of equipment, supplies and pay for tournament fees and transportation. ASB card sales will be available throughout the week. All ASB cardholders will get the ASB logo printed on their school photo ID, so make sure you get your new photo ID Card printed when you purchase an ASB Card.

    Lunch Applications are on our school website under the information tab. If you have not filled a lunch application out, please do so. The lunch application is on the website! The federal government has placed very high standards on school nutrition. In keeping with the set guidelines, we cannot have students receiving food products from outside vendors during the school day. Please do not drop off purchased food products for students throughout the day.

    Interpersonal Communication is what we have been focusing on during passing period and lunch time. This means that students are not allowed to use their electronic devices from the start of the 1st period bell to the end of their school day. We have one thousand beautiful smiling faces on campus and we would like all students to have actual face to face conversations. Electronic device addiction can be a hard change. For the 6 hours of the school day, we would like all students to refrain from the temptation to be plugged in listening to music, chatting, texting, playing games or watching videos.

    This week we will be performing dress code sweeps and tardy sweeps. Our # 1 goal is to make sure students are on time to all classes and show themselves as academically prepared for success. 1st period starts at 8:20 am, we would like all students on campus by 8:10am. Students who are late to their classes throughout the day will need to check in with a site supervisor for a security clearance pass. We appreciate all you do to get students on campus by 8:10am.

    Academic Habits that create an academic environment: Each day students are expected to have their school issued photo ID on a current Hercules high school lanyard. Students are not allowed in their classes or on campus without their Photo ID. If a student forgot their ID, they have the choice to call home to retrieve their ID or to purchase a replacement one. This is a special reminder that each time your son or daughter requests a replacement ID, it is a $3.00 cost for the ID and a $2.00 cost for the lanyard. Students are expected to be on time to every class throughout the school day.

    All students need to be on campus by 8:10am so you are not late to your 1st period class. Thanks for having your son or daughter on campus by 8:10am. We look forward to seeing all student on campus bright and early Monday morning!
