Smarter, Balanced Assessments
We are piloting these assessments for math and reading in the months of March and April. You can read about these assessments here http://www.k12.wa.us/smarter/default.aspx
All middle school students will take Math and Reading tests. The schedule is to the left under SBAC Schedule. It is very important that students be present for this testing. Please look at the schedule before you make appointments - it will be difficult for your student to make up the assessments if they are pulled out of testing sessions. Thank you.
UPDATE: Testing will begin a week later than planned due to quality assurance issues with the test.

New Student Information Nights
All parents interested in enrollment for 2014-2015 are invited and encouraged to attend one of our New Student Info Nights this spring. They are held in the gym at HP, starting at 6:00 p.m. on 2/26, 3/26 and 4/23.
Attendees will hear about HP, and the IB program from staff and students and receive enrollment packets the night they attend.
Enrollment packets are accepted for in-district students May 5 beginning at 9:00 a.m. Out-of-district student forms will be accepted starting May 12.
If you have a sibling entering, we must know by May 1; that way we can save a space; otherwise there may not be room.
