Science Fair 2015
This year's Science Fair and Science projects are coming soon! All students are required to do a project for the Science Fair. HJH students can choose a project that involves Physical/Earth Science, Life Science or Technology. The technology portion of the Science Fair is to build a Rube Goldberg Contraption. Before choosing to build a Rube Goldberg Contraption, students MUST have their parents sign and turn in a letter stating that parents are aware of the requirement for students to attend and compete on the Saturday of the technology competition. Please direct any questions to your child’s science teacher.
SBAC: Your student has begun practicing for the new Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test that is being implemented statewide this year. HJH piloted this testing for students last school year, but neither parents or the school received results from the testing. All students will take on-line tests in English/Language Arts, Math and a multi-tiered Performance Task. Your student will have the opportunity to practice for each of these component tests over the coming weeks. All tests are conducted using our Chrome Book Tablets, and getting the students accustomed to manipulating this device is critical for their success. If you would like more information about SBAC, you may contact the school or go www.smarterbalanced.org.
