Hawk News for the week of 10/29/10
HOPKINTON MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL MISSION
We foster a learning environment that is safe, supportive, and respectful.
We promote personal integrity, intellectual curiosity, and civic
responsibility. We provide traditional and innovative opportunities for students to maximize their potential.
Happy Halloween! I know my own children are excited to dress up in their outfits and visit homes this weekend. I hope the weather and the temperatures this weekend hold up and people have time to get outside and enjoy it. I know I am looking forward to cleaning up the last of the leaves in my yard as we continue to prepare for winter.
Parent teacher conferences are next week. There is no school for middle school students on Monday, Nov. 1st and Tuesday, Nov. 2nd as Parent/Teacher Conferences for the middle school are occurring on those days. There is school for high school students on Monday, Nov. 1st but not on Tuesday, Nov. 2nd.
Tuesday, November 2nd is Election Day. The high school will be open for voting from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Parking will be in the rear of the high school and voting will take place in the Gym.
Best of luck to the Girls Varsity Soccer Team as they will travel to Fall Mountain on Friday night to play Wildcats in the second round of the playoffs.
Grades close Friday, Nov. 5th. Report cards will go home with the students on November 15th.
Something to think about:
'The open teacher ... establishes rapport and resonance, sensing unspoken needs, conflicts, hopes and fears. Respecting the learners autonomy, the teacher spends more time helping to articulate the urgent questions than demanding the right answers.' Aquarian Conspiracy

THE 20-20 LINE
Are you or someone you care about having a problem? Are you unable or uncomfortable to come into school to communicate it? The middle school guidance office has a private phone line where individuals can leave a confidential message about a non-academic student issue.
The guidance counselor will listen to the message and determine the appropriate avenue of help. This is a great way to seek support
for yourself or someone you care about. It’s simple. Just call the 20-20 line (746-2020) and leave a message.

Dial-A-Ride Volunteers Needed
Dial A Ride is a volunteer service organization that was started by the Hopkinton Woman's Club over 30 years ago. Our purpose is to transport the elderly in our community to medical and dental appointments in Hopkinton and Contoocook as well as to the Concord area. We are in need of drivers to help us out. You would usually be called only once a month to help and it is Monday through Friday, no weekends involved. Normally you can drop the client at their appointment and do any errands yourself. Feel free to drop by our office at the Slusser Senior Center Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 10 am to 12 noon or call Cathy Rothwell at 746-4364, Pat Dawson at 746-5547, or Danielle Meserve at 746-6866 if you have any questions.
