Earlier this week we shared a Parent U video on how our teachers are incorporating Social and Emotional Learning into their curriculum. This is the second video in that series hosted by our Director of Social Emotional Learning and Measurement, Molly Walker. We hope you find these a beneficial glimpse into this important aspect of preparing all our students to be Ready for Tomorrow.
The State of Ohio requires the administration of a number of assessments for students at the high school level. Many of these assessments tie to a student’s ability to earn a high school diploma. If your child is testing, it is essential that they are PRESENT the day of the test. Testing will be Tuesdays and Wednesday (April 23 & 24). Below are the specifics of what tests will be given which days, and who should be testing. Room assignments have been emailed to the individual student or can be accessed in the Counselor’s Corner Canvas Course. Please be sure that your iPad is fully charged on the day of testing as tests are online. All students need to have the AIR Secure Test App downloaded prior to their test day.
Please take a few minutes to watch this short video: https://youtu.be/_netO178eJY

We will be on an adjusted 2 hour late start schedule on these testing days. If your student is not testing, they do not need to report until 1st period which will begin at 9:40 AM. Buses will run on usual schedule. If students are not testing but arrive at school, they will be in a quiet study hall in the commons.
Having students be Ready for Tomorrow takes academics, interests, and mindset. Join us to learn more about how, and why, HCSD is emphasizing social emotional learning (SEL) attributes with our students. In the fall we held several Parent U sessions so that you could get a glimpse of what teachers might be doing in the classroom and how you can help at home. Our Director of Social Emotional Learning and Measurement, Molly Walker took that information and put it into two parent videos. We hope you find this first one beneficial.

In support of Child Abuse Prevention Month the Committee for Children (CFC), a global leader in research-based social-emotional learning (SEL) programs, wants to partner with parents to give tips on how to talk about child sexual abuse, which research shows can protect children against future harm.
Hilliard’s Director of Student Well Being, Mike Abraham, wants families to find ways to have these critical and difficult conversations. You can visit the CFC’s Hot Chocolate Talk website and find resources, including advice for initiating the talk, talking points based on the child’s age, and a downloadable guide with conversation starters and tips.
