News From High School Principal

 High School Principal News 

I hope that everyone has had a great start to the 2018-2019 school year.  Our staff has started strong and are accomplishing a lot with students in the classroom and in their activities.  Looking at the upcoming month of October there are a few things worth mentioning:

  • On October 12th we will be ending our first quarter and begin the second quarter on October 15th.  On October 8th there is no school due to Teacher Inservice.
  • We will have Parent/Teacher conferences on October 18th from from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. On the 18th we will dismiss students at 2:40.  On October 19th there will be no school for all students with conferences from 8am to noon.  All parents are encouraged to attend at a time that is convenient for them.  If you are unable to attend, please schedule a time to meet with your child’s teachers. 
  • Red Ribbon week is October 23rd through the 31st.  A little background on Red Ribbon Week.  In 1985, Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena of the Drug Enforcement Agency was kidnapped and killed by Mexican drug traffickers.  Every October, thousands of schools and communities demonstrate their commitment to a drug-free lifestyle by celebrating Red Ribbon Week in his honor.  Our guidance counselors are  planning the activities for this year’s Red Ribbon Week and we hope to get our students involved and aware of a drug-free lifestyle.  This year’s theme is “Life Is Your Journey, Travel Drug Free.”
  • We will have a blood drive on October 2nd beginning at noon and ending at 5:00pm in the west gym.  If you are interested in donating, please contact the high school office.  Thank you in advance for your support of this cause.  
  • In September, our school administered a Gallup Strengths Finder test to  all students in grades 7-12.  Our 7th and 8th grade students have a Strengths Explorer set of results that gave them their top 3 strengths.  Students in 9th through 12th grade each have a Clifton Strengths set of results that gave them their top 5 strengths.  Teachers have worked with students to explore their strengths and I encourage parents to ask their child about their strengths.  A major theme of the Strengths Finder is to have students focus on what they are naturally good at and where they thrive instead of their weaknesses.  If you have a chance, please ask me about my strengths, I would love to explain what I am made of.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call the Hershey High School office.  We have had a great start to the school year here at Hershey and enjoy working with your students. 

Jeff Steinbeck, High School Principal
