Principal's Updates

  • From the Prinicpal's Desk: Week of Jan. 28

    Posted by Paul Mansingh on 1/27/2019

    We hope the short week back was productive and allowed for a smooth transition into the 2nd semester.  Semester 1 report cards will be sent on Tuesday of this week to the address we have on record, so you should be receiving it by the end of next week. If your primary residence has changed, make sure you stop by the main office to update the records that we have on file. Once you get the report card, we encourage you to have an academic conversation with your son or daughter and speak in terms of the value of an academic paycheck.  What is the monetary value of a report card?  What is the value of passing all classes with a “C” or better?  The value of a high school diploma reaps tangible career benefits. A qualifying high school transcript often leads to even greater career opportunities, acceptance into 4 year institutions, and qualifications for academic scholarships.

    Take time to have your student express their academic goals for the 3rd quarter, have them outline the ways they intend to achieve those goals. Ask them how you can support them throughout the 3rd quarter. 3rd quarter progress reports will be distributed on February 26th.

    Academic achievements are not earned at the end of a grading period, but they are earned by a commitment to do academic work on a daily basis. Each student should be spending 40-60 minutes per night reviewing course work of that day, completing upcoming assignments and studying for upcoming quizzes and exams.

    Academic Achievement Night, A night that we acknowledge all those who have earned the honor roll or principals list will be February 6  at 6:30pm.  We plan to recognize all our academic scholars who have earned a 3.0 or above, with no grade less than a C for the entire 1st semester. Invitations will be sent out by the end of this week.

    The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world. As an aptitude test, the ASVAB measures your strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. The ASVAB also provides you with career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether you choose to go to college, vocational school, or a military career.  We will be hosting the ASVAB on February 28, 2019 sign ups will be made available through the library or career center.

    1st day for spring sports is January 28th. All registration and paperwork may be submitted online, and can be found on our high school’s webpage. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Grecco.  All athletes participating in spring sports are encouraged to purchase an ASB card through the cashier’s window for $65. The ASB card supports the cost of all student extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.

    Are you ready for some Football – Hercules High School Spring Training for next football season has begun! If you are not in a spring sport, you are invited to join us Monday thru Thursday from 3:30 – 5:30pm.  We will meet on the Turf field! See Coach DeMons for more information.

    Yearbooks are currently on sale! They can be purchased through the school cashier.

    A couple of items that we would like your support with: 

    • Students are not to receive food from outside vendors or food purchased from outside vendors are not to be dropped off for students throughout the school day.
    • Closed Campus Policy: Once a student is dropped off at school or arrives to school they are not to leave campus for any reason. This includes unauthorized trips to the parking lot.  If at any time a student needs to leave campus they need to check out at student services office.  Please remember that the student parking lot is off campus.

    Throughout the 2nd semester, we will be encouraging all students to come to school as if they were reporting to work.  This means that they present themselves throughout the school day with a focus that will earn an academic pay check.  Pants/ shirts, and all clothing need to be worn correctly without undergarments or excessive skin showing. We can’t get academically paid if we are not present to all classes on time. All students should be on campus by 8:10am, so they are not late to 1st period. Thank you for all your efforts to get all students on campus by 8:10am.
