    Hawks,

    Just a few quick reminders:

    • NO SCHOOL Friday, October 11th or Monday, October 14th. Enjoy the long weekend!

    • Saturday School has been cancelled for this Saturday, October 12th. However, Credit Recovery will be open tomorrow Friday, October 11th from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for students to work on credit recovery or make up hours.

    • Senior contracts will be given out next week on Tuesday, October 15th. These are due back to the front office by Friday, November 1st. 

    • Attention AP Students!
      The deadline for registering and paying a deposit on your AP Exams is October 15! Remember that the process is different than last year. The website for students to register for AP tests is https://myap.collegeboard.org. Students are AUTOMATICALLY REGISTERED for the AP Exam once they enter the join code given by their teacher. They must do this for each AP Exam. Join codes are provided by the AP Teacher.

      Parents: Please PAY the $40 deposit on each of your student’s exams! The website for paying for the AP deposits is https://aptsusa.com/hendrickson.

      Students can find the AP Exam scholarship application at https://hhshelp.weebly.com/ap-information.html. Students who do not qualify for Free Reduced Lunch and are taking more than one exam can apply. The scholarship applies to the second payment due in February, not to the deposit that is due Oct. 15.

      If your student will not be taking the AP Exam for the AP Class they are taking, they need to notify their teacher.

      The College Board will CANCEL AP Exam registrations if deposits are not paid by the deadline. Don’t get left behind!

    • SAT/PSAT testing will be administered next Wednesday, October 16th. Students must bring their ID's and a calculator (no wifi/internet capability or noise) if they have one.

The goal is to drop off a little pick-me-up, once per month, to encourage our teachers at Hendrickson. Teachers are open for adoption and once a teacher has been chosen, they are no longer available. Feel free to adopt more than one, if you are so led. Teachers have filled out a 'Teacher Favorite' form (link embedded in the signup) which will help give you ideas for each teacher. Some teachers opted not to participate - if they are not listed, then they have chosen not to participate this year.  Feel free to share this link with other parents, booster organizations, and groups.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0c4aaeaf2fa46-hhscommunity2

    • Hendrickson pre-sale football tickets are available at discounted prices for all HHS football games: $3 per student and $7 per adult.
