Updates

  • Dear Parents,


    As much as we might try to prevent it, summer is nearing its end.  We hope that you and your family have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  It has been an incredibly busy summer at HMS this year.  In addition to hiring 12 new staff members that are joining us this year, several improvements to our building have been initiated--most notable is breaking through the walls of HMS to create three doorways into the HMS Courtyard.  The vision that we have had for our Courtyard is finally taking root as we look to complete Phase 1 of our Courtyard Project by the end of this summer.   


    SUPPLY LISTS

    Supply lists for each grade level are posted on the HMS website under Parents > Key Documents.

    Summer Reading Reminder

    Grade 6: Tuck Everlasting  


    Grade 7: So Far from the Bamboo Grove


    Grade 8: Trouble


    Summer Reading Expectations can be found on the HMS website under Students > Summer Reading.


    Chromebooks in Grade 8

    This school year, students in grade 8 will be introduced to a 1:1 environment while in their math and science classrooms.  Teachers and students will utilize Chromebooks while in math and science as a way to deliver a more personalized, student-centered learning environment.  Our goal in placing this technology in our students’ hands is to equip them with the tools to problem-solve and think critically, to provide more individualized instruction with consistent feedback, to decrease the amount of time in the traditional “feedback loop,” to increase their engagement and access to resources, and to foster collaboration and communication.


    This program differs from Hopkinton High School’s 1:1 initiative in two ways: 1) students will not bring their devices home with them--they will be utilized within the math and science classrooms only, and 2) the devices are Chromebooks, not MacBooks.  While MacBooks offer an integrated, full suite of applications and programs that our staff and students use regularly, much of the science and math applications can be accessed through Google Chromebooks.  With a lower per unit cost, purchasing Chromebooks enabled us to outfit all math and science classrooms.  


    2014-2015 SCHEDULE

    Many of you are likely aware that last year our schedule involved a period of intervention, called Hiller Block, at the end of each day.  This daily period was part of our school’s goal around Response to Intervention in which we provided remediation or enrichment to students.  We were able to deliver extensive help to some students last year as a result of this period; however, there were several impacts in order to create this period.  Our team spent the year evaluating the pros and cons of Hiller Block. While we remain committed to providing remediation and enrichment to our students, next year’s schedule will not have a daily block of intervention, and instead Hiller Block will occur on Days 2 and 8 in our 12-day schedule.


    SUMMER HEALTH REMINDERS

    Incoming Grade 8 Students:

    All grade 8 students should submit documentation for a new physical exam before the start of the school year. While it is not a requirement for grade 8, it will benefit them in three ways:  

    • Health records will be kept up to date.

    • A record of the postural screening will be on file so the student will not need to have it done in the coming school year.

    • If a student is trying out for a sport and needs a copy of his/her physical, we will have one safely stored at the school.


    Incoming Grade 7 Students:

    According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, all children who attend seventh grade need to be properly immunized. These regulations are designed to prevent illness and disruptions caused by diseases. The Department of Public Health supports a “no shots-no entry” policy for children attending Hopkinton Public Schools. The minimum requirement for entry is:

    • Tetanus booster (if more than five years has elapsed since last booster)

    • 2 doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)

    • 3 doses of polio

    • 3 doses of Heb B

    • 2 dose of varicella (chickenpox) or physician-certified history of chickenpox disease

    Please provide an updated physical and immunization record to the school by Thursday September 4, 2014.  According to State law, your child will be excluded from school if these immunizations (shots) have not been completed.


    Incoming Grade 6 Students:

    Please provide documentation for an updated physical exam to the school so your student’s health record can be kept up to date.


    NEW STAFF BIOS

    As we welcome the school year, we are proud to introduce a number of new staff to our talented faculty.  


    Malcolm Cheney graduated from Keene State College with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education.  Malcolm will teach grade 7 Social Studies.  As a product of Hopkinton Public Schools, for Malcolm, teaching here is a true homecoming.  Malcolm believes that learning is impossible if the student is not challenged.  He has a passion not only to teach students the events of the past, but to inspire citizenship, and to challenge students to become effective readers and writers.  Malcolm strives to make his lessons challenging, engaging, full of critical thinking, and fun.  Malcolm is an avid soccer player, serving as the team captain at Keene State and he will coach the Junior Varsity boys’ soccer team.  We are glad to have Malcolm back home.

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE!

    Last week we sent a message home with your child(ren) regarding parental permission to use digital resources at school. We wish to clarify this permission process as many parents thought that by signing the message and returning it to school, they were giving permission. However, that is not the case. 

    ·       If you intend to use the online permission form, you DO NOT need to sign and return the form that was sent home.  Rather, signing and returning the form indicates to us that you prefer a paper copy of the permissions instead of doing so electronically.

    ·       Otherwise, we ask you to complete the online permission process no later than July 15th.

    We are sorry for any confusion this may have caused, and we thank you for your diligence in this matter.

  • Dear Parents of Incoming Grade 8 students,

    As the school year wraps up, many families begin to think about summer learning opportunities to help their children maintain or build upon this year's math learning. Research shows that many students lose 2-3 months of grade level math equivalency over the summer. As a result, we would like to bring your attention to a free program offered by TenMarks Education that will provide your child with access to a powerful, personalized summer math program designed to help him or her reverse summer learning loss. Participation in the program is completely optional and is offered free this summer to families.  More information on TenMarks is available here: https://www.tenmarks.com/assets/pdf/parent_summer_program.pdf

    If you choose to sign up, please use the code below. This code connects your account with your child’s school. Grade levels have different codes that provide you the option to send your child’s learning progress to his or her next-year teacher. None of your child’s data will be shared with the school system unless you opt to do so in August. Here is how you can sign up for your free TenMarks Summer Math account:

    1. Beginning today, you can visit http://summer.tenmarks.com and sign up. 

    Please use Summer Access Code: S14HMS5285

    1. Before summer break, you’ll receive an email with access details for your child and for you to monitor his or her progress.

    3. The assessment will be automatically graded and TenMarks will create a personalized program, designed for your child to prepare for the upcoming year. 

    4. You can create custom rewards to keep your child motivated – pizza, ice cream, or a trip to the zoo! It’s all up to you! 

    An hour a week is all it takes for your child to strengthen his or her math skills, and prepare for the year ahead. The TenMarks Summer Math Program will guide your child through a personalized program, one topic at a time, helping him refresh what he knows, and learn what he has not yet mastered. Each assignment contains embedded instruction (hints, video lessons, and interventions) to help your child refresh concepts from the past year and prepare for the ones ahead. 

    The 3-month program starts in the first week of June. To start, visit the URL below to register. Please remember to type in your Access Code. The attached flyer offers a closer look at this optional program, or you can find out more at http://summer.tenmarks.com.

  • RAPID DEPLOYMENT TRAINING AT HOPKINS SCHOOL

    Dr. MacLeod wants to make the community aware of an upcoming police training to take place at the Hopkins School on the afternoon of Monday, August 25th. 

    The CEMLEC SWAT team will provide Rapid Deployment/Active Shooter training to the Hopkinton Police Department. This 8-hour training program is structured around the “First Responder” and consists of a classroom presentation, followed by practical exercises (formations, movement within the structure, room entry, rescue techniques, etc.) and training scenarios. This is a basic course designed to introduce or refresh officers in the Rapid Deployment/Active Shooter Response technique. The Course is taught by instructors certified through the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA), International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI) and/or other National/State certifying entities. 

    As a result of this training, the school will be closed and the Hopkins portion of the loop road will not be accessible.
