  Common Core State Standards 

 July 16, 2013

 

Dear Hemet High School Families:

It is hard to believe that we are moving into the 2013-2014 school year!  As we prepare for the Class of 2014 to finish their time with us and we embark on a new adventure with the class of 2018, many new opportunities will begin the year. 

We are proud to partner with MSJC to offer dual enrollment courses for junior and senior students.  Dual enrollment courses to be offered are Automotive Technology, Multi-media, Guidance, Psychology and English.  Students who successfully complete a dual enrollment class will not only earn Hemet High credit towards graduation but also college credit!  


We are also pleased to welcome the Safe School Ambassador program.  We have approximately 40 students on campus who were trained in providing peer-to-peer bullying interventions.  These students will be enrolled in a leadership class where bullying prevention activities will be planned and carried out to make Hemet High School a “Bully-Free Zone.”

English and Math curriculum and courses are changing to meet the rigorous demands of Common Core State Standards.  English and Math learning will look different in many of our courses with a greater focus on performance tasks and project based learning.  We are looking forward to the focus on 21st century learning skills, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication to prepare our students to be able to compete in a global society.

Our many campus activities provide Bulldog students the ability to get involved and grow in leadership capacity, our campus activities provide students a vehicle to strike a needed balance between their academic and personal lives in order to flourish as productive and fulfilled citizens.  Our Automotive Technology program has been recognized by Riverside County Office of Education as a Model of Excellence program.

The course offerings in Hemet High School’s Performing Arts programs add another layer of sophistication and culture to our students’ lives. Our students’ exposure to the music, dance, art, and theater programs enriches their outlook on the world and allows them to appreciate and respect the beauty that surrounds them, from their local community to the various art forms they will encounter after graduation. Our Academic Decathlon team continues to place in the top three for Riverside County and our Mock Trial team made it through competition to advance into the Elite Eight.

Finally, our Athletic programs continue to give Hemet High School a sense of pride, unity, and respect, both for ourselves and the surrounding community. We celebrated a “three-peat” CIF Championship with our Girls’ Volleyball Program. Girls’ Water Polo also won a CIF Championship, the first polo title in the history of the school.  Finishing the year, our Girls’ Softball team also captured a CIF Title.  Girls tennis, golf and soccer all won league and advanced to CIF. Boys wrestling, basketball, volleyball and water polo all had top league finishes and played at least one round in CIF.   We are proud of our sports programs and our athletes, for the first time in Riverside County we welcome the win of the CIF Commissioner’s Cup recognizing the accomplishments of our girl’s sports.

Hemet High School is an amazing high school that has much to be proud of. Our staff is dedicated to maximizing the academic success and personal growth of each of our students, and I am confident that we have the right people, resources, and tenacity to continue to do just that. At HHS, our aim is to prepare each of our students for post high school success by providing them with a solid academic foundation that will enable them to pursue any post-secondary endeavor they choose.

As we continue working together, I am certain that our students’ academic, social, and extracurricular needs will be met. Welcome to Hemet High and thank you for your support of our school!

Sincerely,

Emily Shaw, Ed.D.
