We initially planned to sprinkle upcoming facility needs into our Facility Friday posts beginning in January, but we had a lot of exciting Winter Break projects to share. Today, on the eve of HHS Spring Sports season, we turn our attention to a facility in need of some attention: The HHS track.
Nearly a decade ago, an anonymous benefactor made a surprise donation that eased the minds of many HSD families. The donor did not want any attention, but he did want to pick up the tab for 300 Hockinson students who were struggling to pay for $1,080 in school meals.
Today’s Spotlight on HSD Facilities is an example of the HSD’s commitment to preparing all graduates for future success and a timely illustration of National Career & Technical Education (CTE) Month. Let’s start with some background: In 2019-20, budget reductions resulted in program reductions. Unfortunately, one of those program reductions was the HHS College & Career Counseling Center. Not surprisingly, on the 2021 Parent Perception Survey, the lowest scoring responses were to the statement: “My student is learning about college and/or career options.”
With today being the official opening of Hockinson Public Schools Foundation (HPSF) Scholarships, we thought it would be appropriate to put the HSD History spotlight on the origins of this amazing community organization.
An increase in enrollment in the HSD’s After School Adventures program both led to, and financed, the installation of a new sound system in the program’s expansive play area. The area, formerly the HMS library and computer lab, has been updated for the 21st Century - it now has wireless microphones and in-ceiling speakers.
