From the Principal's Desk: Week of September 9th

Posted by Paul Mansingh on 9/7/2019

How quickly we move into the 4th week of the school year with an eye already on the end of the 1st grading period.  1st quarter progress reports will be distributed on September 19th  with the end of the 1st grading period set for October 23rd.  We will celebrate academic excellence at the end of each grading period with each student earning a 3.0 or above receiving a Titan Excellence Certificate. Thanks for having academic conversations with your child to make sure their focus is our focus.  Our expectation is that all students earn a C or above in each class. Are you developing the academic habits that will lead to individual success?

The first Parent Teacher Organization meeting will be on September 11th in the career center starting at 6:30pm. This will be a potluck event, and planning will take place around the fund raising events for the upcoming school year. In addition, the PTO is look for a new treasurer to join the board.  All parents are welcome to attend. If you would like more information, please visit the Hercules High School Parent Teacher Organization Facebook page. Any questions, please contact Muraya Ranieri.

Our dress code policy is posted on the school website. All students are expected to dress appropriately for school. Any student who is not dressed appropriately for school will be given the opportunity to change. Please help support our dress code policy by reviewing the policy with your student.

Picture make up day is September 24th,  you can still order your Lifetouch pictures through the school’s website page.

Back to School Night is September 26th.    The general assembly for Back To School Night will begin at 5:30pm in the gym.  The cafeteria will be open at 5:00pm providing a $1.00 menu for all food items. Come out and join us, we welcome all parents and guardians to our Back To School night on September 26th . The following day, on the 27th, we will be on a minimum day bell schedule.   

Lunch Applications are available on the school website. If you have not renewed your lunch application, we encourage you to do so. 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. Students are not to order or receive food from outside restaurants throughout the school day.

If your son or daughter drives to school, they need to purchase a student parking permit. Parking permit applications are available through the cashiers office.  

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! Have a great evening!
