Principal's Message

Parent Newsletter Article – Feb. 1, 2018


With this being my final Hart Parent Newsletter, I would like to say thank you to the staff, students, and parents who have defined my experience at one of the best high schools in the nation during these last 19.5 years (10.5 as principal)! We have certainly covered a lot of ground during that time period, and I am extremely proud of all of our accomplishments at the school and by our alumni in the wider world. I know, however, that Hart is in excellent hands under the leadership of Jason d’Autremont, and I look forward to the new heights that await this school.


The spring semester is off to a great start! The second half of the school year is always very busy with a whole host of activities, including state testing, Advanced Placement testing, the prom, and graduation (and a whole bunch more!). The pace in the classroom is also very quick this semester, so please encourage your students to stay on top of their assignments and responsibilities so they don’t fall behind.


In terms of testing, we will once again have the full implementation of the computerized state testing this year, the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Our entire junior class will be testing, and there is also one test for sophomores as well. State testing at Hart High School will take place during part of the weeks of April 16 and April 22; we will publish the testing schedule as we get closer.


Welcome back, and I hope you and your students have a great second semester!


Forever Alive with Pride,


Collyn Nielsen
