Dear Hosford Families,
Last week, I wrote you about Hosford's commitment to welcome and support all of our students and families, and to stand against racism, sexism, xenophobia, and religious intolerance.
As promised, this week in extended advisory on Thursday, we began talking about race and racism with students, in order to help build an understanding from which we can strengthen our school community. This is, clearly, a deep subject, and this first lesson was just an initial one. We will eventually also be addressing the other issues (sexism, xenophobia, religious intolerance) in contrast to our school values. We know that, at this age, students may struggle to process messages they receive in the media or from peers, and we want to give them tools to think critically, to respond positively, and to speak up if they encounter an unjust situation.
On Thursday, November 17, we are celebrating our 1st quarter Principal's List and Honor Roll students at an assembly at 2:42 pm. Parents are welcome to join us! Students on the Principal's List received at least 5 "consistently manages responsibilities" comments on their report card, and students on the Honor Roll received at least 4 "consistently manages responsibilities" comments. Congratulations to the following students for their hard work!

Dear Hosford Community and Families,
We want to know the values that are important to you and that you want to see reflected in our school’s expectations of students. Our goal is to develop 3-5 values with input from students, staff, community members, and families.
The team wants to understand what’s important to each member of our school community.
Please share the three (3) values you believe are most important in this survey. It is our goal to have your voice reflected in the development of Hosford’s revised School-Wide Student Expectations.
Thank you for sharing your opinion.
