Ways to help your child attend school every day
Every day counts!
The New York State government has launched an initiative to help parents improve their children's attendance. This website offers tips for encouraging your student to attend school every day. It can help you boost your child's confidence, keep your child on track with school work, keep your child healthy, and protect your child from bullies.

Class Survey Reveals What Students Learned
Ms. Zucker had students in her Health class fill out an "End of Semester" survey. After completing the survey, they had a class discussion to share their thoughts and ideas. Then, students wrote one “Take Away,” or valuable thing they learned, from the course and displayed them on a poster in the classroom. A few examples are: "Learning to get along with people while working with them," "how to deal with serious situations," "healthy eating," the "mental health unit," and "different ways of communication [that make] me see everything in a different view."
Ms. Zucker finds the feedback incredibly helpful in tweaking lessons and activities for the next semester. More importantly, she thinks it is encouraging, even empowering, to give students the opportunity to provide their teacher with feedback.
Coming soon to a classroom near you!
This year, some HCSD teachers are piloting a communication platform called LivingTree in order to share important information with the parents of their students. Parents will be able to receive messages, photos, event notifications and more directly from their child's teacher. LivingTree even has instant translation for more than 40 languages!
So if you see an email in your inbox from LivingTree it is not junk, it is from your child's teacher!
