Bridges Community Church (across Driscoll Blvd) has asked that the following message be sent:

 

Vehicles have been turning into the church parking lot to turn around in lieu of the city changes to legal U-Turns at St. Anthony.  This has created a dangerous drop off and pick up for Pre-School and Kindergarten families.  The church parking lot is private property and should not be used as a "turn around area."  Police will be out multiple times this week to issue warnings.  Beginning next week they will give issue citations.  Please make U-Turns at Driscoll and Mission Blvd using the sheltered light.

 

Thanks,

 

Hopkins and Bridges

Request for Parent Volunteers to be AVID Tutors

 

The Hopkins AVID site team is looking for adult parent volunteers to help out during the AVID elective. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a K – 12 program that helps students achieve academic success in honors or advanced classes and build skills necessary for college.

 

What do volunteers do?

AVID students participate in tutorials twice a week. During tutorials they break into groups based on the subject matter of their questions. In those groups, students present their questions to their group. The group members then help the student presenter get to the right answer by asking more pointed questions about their initial question.

 

Ideally, each tutorial group has a tutor or facilitator that monitors the group’s progress and keeps them focused. The job of the tutor is not to give the students the right answer, but rather to ask questions, and encourage the other students in the group to ask questions, that lead the student presenter to find the answers themselves. We are looking for parent volunteers to be the tutors of the tutorial groups. The tutor helps the students model the learning process. The tutor does not need to know the answer to the students’ questions.

 

Hopefully, volunteers would want to come consistently during 6 period on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:41 to 2:27. We could also split into 1st and 2nd semester volunteers and/or Tuesday only and Thursday only groups.

 

Volunteer tutors will be trained in the AVID Tutorial process.

 

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact:

The 2018 Science Instructional Materials Adoption reviewer panel deliberations were held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Sacramento July 17–20, 2018. Each panel of State Board of Education (SBE)-appointed reviewers developed recommendations to the Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) and submitted a panel Report of Findings for each submitted program. The IQC held a public comment meeting on the adoption on August 13, 2018. This will be followed by a review of the panel recommendations and the development of an IQC report to the SBE on September 20–21, 2018. The State Board of Education will take action on the adoption at their November 2018 meeting.

Dear Hopkins Junior High Students and Family Members,
For Hopkins Junior High School’s 2018-19 school year, all registered students who are low-income will be eligible to receive a free Student Transit Pass — a Clipper card that provides unlimited access to AC Transit bus services. These passes are being distributed as part of the Student Transit Pass Pilot, a three-year effort sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded through Measure BB, a local transportation sales tax measure.
You will have an opportunity to enroll in the Pilot at registration in August. Income limits are the same as for free and reduced price meals. Registration, consent, and release forms will be available for you to complete, sign, and return. Students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign the registration form as indicated. Once the form is submitted and verified by school staff, students will receive a Clipper card within three weeks. You can also download a registration form from the school’s website, complete it, and return it to the front office beginning the first day of school.
Hopkins Junior High School is one of 21 schools in Alameda County that will participate in this program during the coming year. If you will be attending a different school in Alameda County in the fall, you may still be eligible to participate. You can find out more information about participating schools at www.alamedactc.org/studentpass.
Questions may be directed to Ms. Sonja Loob at (510) 656-3500, or to Ms. Dana Rubin at drubin@nelsonnygaard.com.
Thank you,

Please see below from Student Support Services.  My recommendation for parents with kids that want to watch this show would be to watch with their kids.  If that isn't possible I recommend that you watch so you can talk about it with them.

Thanks,

Mr. Brown

 

 

This past Friday, May 18, 2018, Netflix will be releasing Season 2 of the television series based on Jay Asher’s 2007 book “Thirteen Reasons Why.”  This season is anticipated to be both popular and potentially triggering for young people, especially to already vulnerable students.  We are notifying you of this event to enable you and your family to make informed decisions regarding viewing this series.

 

The makers of this show, Netflix, have not confirmed details about what to expect from Season 2. After the first season’s graphic depiction of suicide, early indications are that this season will touch upon highly sensitive subjects: adolescent bullying, rejection, heartbreak, sexual assault, abuse, revenge, gun violence, how culture and society shapes femininity/masculinity, depression, and unsuccessful efforts to find help or understanding. According to reports, Season 2 will follow how the characters deal and cope with Hannah Baker’s death by suicide in Season 1. Netflix has issued warnings about the series regarding its strong content and have also added new resources to their website 13ReasonsWhy.info, including an updated discussion guide and a new discussion series where cast members address issues like bullying, sexual assault, and drug abuse.  It is unknown how the television series will ultimately address these issues.  Based on the response to the first season, the mental health community anticipates a similar increase of youth in need of support following the release of the second season.

 

Please note that mental health professionals and staff do not recommend viewing this series, but want you to be aware of its existence for the mental health of your student.

 

If your teen chooses to watch the series, it is advised that an adult view and discuss it with them to assist in processing the content. Netflix tends to open all episodes for immediate viewing so parents should also consider metered viewing of this series to allow time to process and discuss reactions and feelings that may arise.  We have included some themes, questions and talking points to help with dialogue.  Also included are some national and local resources for your reference. These resources were developed with the help of Stanford University, Project Safety Net and San Mateo and Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Departments in collaboration with national suicide prevention organizations to develop ways in which families can help guide their students should they decide to watch. 

 

If you have any questions, please connect with your school’s mental health counselor or administrator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“13 Reasons Why, Season 2” Viewing Resources

 

Viewing Guidance for Families by National Association of School Psychologists

  • Ask your child if they have heard or seen the series. 
  • If they have or are interested, tell them that you want to watch it with them or to catch up, and discuss their thoughts.
  • Listen and respond to your children’s comments without judgement.  Doing so requires that you fully concentrate, put your opinions aside, seek to understand and remember what is said.
  • If they exhibit any warning signs for suicide, don’t be afraid to ask if they have thought about suicide, or if someone is hurting them.  Raising the issue of suicide does not increase the risk or plant the idea, on the contrary, it creates the opportunity to offer help.
  • Ask your child if they think any of their friends or classmates exhibit warning signs. Talk with them about how to seek help for a friend or classmate.
  • Get help from a mental health professional if you are concerned for your child’s safety or the safety of one of their peers.

 

Possible themes to explore:

  • Have you ever experienced anything that reminds you of what any of these characters are going through?
  • Who are the safe, trusted adults you feel you can go to if you are feeling overwhelmed or have concerns about one of your friends? 
  • If you could talk to any of the characters, who would you want to talk to? What would you want to say to them? 

  • What are situations from the series when young people acted in heroic or empathic ways? 

  • If you were Hannah, what words or actions might have helped you survive? 

  • If you were Hannah, what might have helped you make different decisions? 

  • If you could rewrite history -- or even just one event in each one of the episodes, what would 
you rewrite? In the first? In the second? In the third? Why is that event so important?” 


 

Further discussion guides for talking with teens about some of the show’s topics:

 

Suicide Prevention Community Concerns

Suicide is complex. Suicide is never anyone’s fault. The series does not emphasize that common among suicide deaths is the presence of treatable mental illness. Suicide is not the simple consequence of stressors or coping challenges, but rather it is most typically a combined result of treatable mental illness and overwhelming or intolerable stressors. The series includes a graphic depiction of a suicide without addressing mental illness or alternatives to suicide. Additionally there are concerns around how the series blames the character’s suicide on others, failed attempts to seek help, adults that do not respond appropriately, and the apparent glamorization of suicide including unrecommended practices of memorialization.

The city has put in place new "NO U-Turn" signs at the Driscoll and St. Anthony intersection between the hours of 7AM and 9AM.  Please proceed all the way up to Mission to make a U-Turn at the stoplight (this is both safer and faster anyway.)

 

I stepped out to give some reminders about the new signs this morning.  Fremont Police say they will be by in the next week to help reinforce these changes.

The contest is designed to motivate students to learn about the world and how it works. All Hopkins Junior High Students will have the opportunity to participate in the preliminary round of the National Geographic Bee on Monday, January 8, 2018 in their history class.  The top 10 school winners will advance to the Hopkins Finals Competition on Monday, January 22, 2018 at 2:45.  The final competition consists of a final round and a championship round.  The final round will reduce the number of contestants to two.  These two finalists then compete in the championship round to determine the school champion.  The school champion will then take an additional exam to see if the qualify for the state competition.  The date of that qualifying exam will be determined later.  As many as 100 of the highest-scoring students in a state or territory advance to the state competition. The state Bee champion advances to the national championship in Washington, D.C.
