Hawk News for the week of 5/13/11
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.
This time of year is extremely busy. Sports winding down, students looking forward to the summer, preparing for final exams, seniors are completing their four years of high school and preparing for graduation, music concerts, awards night, and college acceptance anticipation are just a few of the things that many of us are thinking about.
A quick reminder regarding cell phones. We have seen a rise in the use of cell phones over the last couple of weeks. Please remind your youngsters to turn off and put away their cell phones during the school day. Students may only use their cell phones in the office to call someone or check messages.
On Thursday May 26th at 7:00 PM, the Colleges That Change Lives event will take place in Boston, MA. CTCL events are free of charge offer families the opportunity to meet with admission officials from many colleges. Parents may go to www.CTCL.org for more information.
On Friday, May 13th, the middle school will be hosting their last dance of the year. Admission to the dance is $5.00 and doors will open at 7:00 PM.
The extended day schedule will end on Tuesday, May 17th. Regular school hours will begin on Wednesday, May 18th.
Students in grades 7 & 8 will be attending the Fisher Cats game on Thursday, May 19th.
The Twelfth Annual Fine Arts Forensics Tournament will be held on Thursday, May 19th from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. This event will showcase student performances in the areas of public speaking and dramatics. This is a wonderful evening. Please come out a support those participating in this event.
Something to think about:
'Life can only be understood backwards but you have to live it forward. You can only do that by stepping into uncertainty and by trying, within this uncertainty, to create your own islands of security….The new security will be a belief that …if this doesn't work out you could do something else'. You are your own security'. Charles Handy Business Philosopher.

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.
