Greetings, Hart Families,
The spring semester is well underway and we could not be more excited to talk with you about our upcoming Open House activities, including the Future Freshman Orientation welcoming many of our Placerita Junior High families to Hart. We have been encouraging our faculty to reach out more and more to students and their parents in order to connect us all in meaningful ways. We believe in your students and should they be struggling academically or socially, we want to be here to help!
One way in which you can encourage your students to get more help is during Office Hours on Late Start Wednesdays or at Library Nights on most Tuesdays and Thursdays in our Library from 3:00-4:00 p.m. and from 6:00-8:00 p.m. We also have a tremendous Counseling staff always available to assist students with interpersonal problems. Moreover, speaking of our Counselors, they are in the middle of registering students for classes for the 2019-2020 school year! This means that your son or daughter may be bringing home information as to what classes they would like to take next year.
Finally, in this issue you will see information on the CAASPP test that is upcoming after our Spring Break in April. While this state test is only administered to 11th graders, we wanted to stress the importance of this test and how Hart High School is perceived when it comes the results of it. The Hart District will be placing the CAASPP scores on students’ transcripts beginning with the class of 2020. Therefore, we wanted our students and their families to be aware that colleges and universities will now be more aware than ever about how well our students so on this test. We see this as a positive as it can follow up what excellent AP scores that Hart consistently has by showing what great CAASPP scores and how hard our teachers and students work!
Alive With Pride,
