IMPORTANT STATE TESTING DATES
HJH will be administering the SBAC test during the month of April. Please make note of the testing schedule below and your student's specific testing days.
It is important your student gets plenty of rest the night before and that they have a good breakfast before coming to school. It is also very important that students do not miss their tests, so please do your best to make sure they come to school and avoid scheduling any appointments during these windows.
If you have any additional, specific questions please contact Erika McGuire, Assistant Principal, at 431-3410 or email@example.com.

Have you ordered your HJH yearbook?
See the attached sneak preview of the front page of the yearbook. This year our students have worked hard in their HJH Yearbook class to release a student produced yearbook and they are very proud of it! The yearbooks are available on a limited basis and once they sell out, we will not be able to order any additional books. The cost of the book is $35.00 and you can order @Jostens.com or pick up an order form in the HJH Office. For questions, contact the HJH office staff at 431-3410.
Library Nights at Healdsburg High School
The Healdsburg High School Library is now open every Thursday evening from 5:30-7:30. All Healdsburg Unified School District students, parents and siblings are invited to come and use the high school library’s resources, homework. Take advantage of this opportunity to study in this resources-rich environment! Library Evening Hours are sponsored by the Healdsburg Education Foundation. There will be no Library Evening Program on Thursday, March 19 due to another event being held in the library that same evening.
Testing time is here and we all know how stressful it can be on students. In addition to getting enough sleep and eating a healthy breakfast, here are a few tips to help them get through it smoothly!
Wake up early enough: Wake up your student early enough to avoid rushing. Set a back-up alarm if needed.
Make room for downtime: Try to allow your student to have time to relax, breathe and do something fun. It's important to balance testing with some free time.
Testing isn't everything: Remind your student that they are more than a test score. Testing is important but shouldn't determine how they feel about themselves. Ask them how they felt about the test and show your unconditional support.
As always, please contact me with any questions/concerns regarding your student at firstname.lastname@example.org or 431.3410. Thank you!
