Mission, Vision, and Belief Statements
Congratulations to Hebron Elementary School, Hebron Middle School and Hebron High School for being awarded a renewed five-year AdvancED Accreditation! This accreditation process examines the whole institution, the programs, the cultural context and the community stakeholders, to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of learners. The visiting Review Team assesses the quality of the learning environment to gain insights and target improvements in teaching and learning. AdvancED provides standards that are tailored for all education providers so that the benefits of accreditation are universal across the education community. We would like to thank parents, students, faculty and staff for helping us with this process.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Elementary Art Teacher, Mrs. Mary Drazer, on her retirement from Hebron. Mrs. Drazer should be commended not only for her 30 years of service to Hebron Elementary School, but also for running an outstanding Art Program.
For school safety purposes, we will be limiting the number of entry points for students in the 2018-2019 school year. For students arriving by car, bicycle or walking, Door “D” will electronically unlock at 7:30 a.m. on regular start days and at 7:50 a.m. on late start Wednesdays. (Elementary students will not be allowed to enter the building prior to these times.) Door “G” will open at 8:10 a.m. on regular start days and 8:20 a.m. on late start Wednesdays for all students arriving by bus.
High stakes testing is not going away anytime soon even though the ISTEP Exam ended for students in grades K-8 last spring. The new ILEARN Assessment will begin during the 2018-2019 school year. These assessments will be computer adaptive, have reduced testing times, and a single testing window. After the first pilot year, the Department of Education is promising individual test results will be returned to schools within 12 days.
Online registration will be available to parents the week of July 16th. Parents will need to login to Harmony to submit all required forms prior to the start of school. (Book Rental will be payable at a later date.) For parents not able to register online, we will have one day (August 6) for on-site registration. Computer labs will be available for parents to complete the required forms on this day. Due to the number of families who no longer come into the building for registration, we will hold our Elementary Open House before school begins. The Elementary Open House will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Monday, August 13th. This allows for students and parents to find their classrooms and meet their teachers before the first day of school on Wednesday, August 15th. (Many parents also appreciated being able to bring in school supplies prior to the first day of school). See you soon!
James R. Martin, Principal
