Hello, Honeoye Students and Parents!
Here we are, with school well underway already. It seems like the anticipation of the new academic year was upon us only yesterday, but the reality is that we are in full swing. Students have adjusted to their school routine, extracurriculars are up and running, and incredible teaching and learning is taking place every day. Our district is in the middle of Year 2 of our Personalized Learning initiative, and our secondary classrooms continue to lead the way through the use of best instructional practices, with our students making fantastic academic gains. Outside of the academic realm, we’ve already recognized a number of 6-12th grade students as True BLUE Bulldogs, demonstrating bravery, leadership, understanding, and empathy both in and out of the classroom. When students are recognized, their names are added to the board outside the secondary office, letters are sent home acknowledging their exemplary character traits, and their names are put into a monthly drawing for a reward. In the coming weeks and months, we will be reviewing some of our policies and procedures with an eye on both physical and emotional safety and a focus on success for all students. I will be working with the teaching staff as well as student leaders and the HCS Parent Teacher Association. I encourage parents to get involved through the PTA as a way to strengthen school and community relationships. We are so much better when we come together! I appreciate the hard work that our teachers and students put in every day and the continued support from families!
