Your student’s progress report was mailed home Friday, November 7th. Please take a careful look, and contact our teachers or the main office if you have any questions or concerns.These reports are just one of the ways you can keep current on your student’s academic standing. Our teachers update their grading on our AERIES system consistently. Remember to log in weekly, as grades change quickly when our students turn in assignments, take assessments and complete unfinished work. Our grades should reflect both content understanding and study habits such as work completion, class participation, consistent attendance and proper citizenship.

Compliments to the student musicians, and thank you to Mr. Masselink and Mr. Johnson for their instruction, guidance and coordination of this wonderful evening event.
Start Planning Your College Education
University of California, the California State University and California Community College staff are reaching out to middle school students to ensure that they are fully informed of the benefits of a college education. Please check out the attached letter written directly to students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 to remind them that they have a place at one of their campuses!
In their message to us as HUSD staff and to you as parents and community members, they remind us that "studies show that communicating to children early and often about the benefits of higher education increases the likelihood that they will attend college. Now more than ever, our state needs more college-educated residents to keep our economy and democracy strong."
They welcome visits to their website, YourCACollegeFuture.org by students and parents to learn what can be done now to prepare for college including knowing about the classes they'll need to take in high school in preparation for college and financial aid opportunities.
Halloween and Origami
The HJH Yearbook and Leadership class has organized a food drive with the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Let’s help to support our community! Please help your student to remember to donate non-perishable food items from now until 11/21. You can mention our food drive to family, friends and neighbors. Often people want to contribute to food drives during the holidays, but do not know where or how? It feels good to help those who may be less fortunate during the holidays. Items can be placed in the bins that are in the courtyard.
Healdsburg Teens Harvest to Feed Community
A great project that our students, through Club H, are participating in. An excellent school-community partnership!
Chess Club meets every Wednesday during lunch with Mr. Costa in Room 15. All students are welcome, even beginners. If you don’t know how to play chess, Mr. Costa and his returning students will teach you! It’s great fun for all students!
Get your hands dirty with Mrs. Beard and the Garden Club every Monday at lunch in the garden by the basketball courts.
