From the Principal

Dear Families:

The start of school is quickly approaching and we at HSEP are very excited to kick off the school year with students on Tuesday, September 3 at 8:10AM. There are many changes coming to HSEP this school year that I am excited to share with you.

First, we will be transitioning to grade level cohorts (please see back side for teacher assignments). Students will be paired with their peers based on their credit status and provided with specific supports to meet their needs. In grades 9 and 10 students will be focused primarily on building their core academic skills such as reading comprehension, critical thinking, writing, communication skills and collaboration. In grades 11 and 12 we will be focused on real-world application of learning through project-based learning. Students will get to work collaboratively to solve problems facing the global as well as the local community.

We are very excited to offer new opportunities to students through our College and Career Readiness Center. Ms. Ferraro, Mr. Gibson and Mr. Costello will provide weekly support to students both in and out of the classroom. Students will be participating in community service activities as 9th graders, job shadows as 10th graders, attending career and college fairs as 11th graders and will be offered an opportunity for a weekly internship as a senior in a career field of their choice. Ms. Evans will also be pushing into classrooms this year to offer social-emotional learning strategies for all students in grades 9-12.

During the first week of school we will be offering our first of many family events with a school-year kick off potluck on Friday, September 6th from 12Noon to 2PM. This event will include food, opportunities to meet your student’s teachers, and fun games and activities to play. This year we will be offering more frequent opportunities for families to both come to the school as well as for the school community to come to your neighborhood. 

Finally, please do not hesitate to reach out if there are any questions or concerns about the school year. We plan to have a very successful school year and want to make sure both you and your student are comfortable and excited to come back in September.

Enjoy the last weeks of summer and we will see you all in September!
