H-BC Secondary Families:

What a GREAT week to celebrate some of our amazing staff this week! 

This past week was Teacher Appreciation Week!  We had a fun time celebrating our wonderful teachers who make HBC GREAT!  Thank you to the families/students who provided snacks, goodies and cards for our teachers!   

National School Nurses Day:  H-BC is privileged to have Mrs. Leenderts as our School Nurse!  Happy School Nurses Day on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

It was also H-BC School Lunch Hero Day this Past Week - Thank you to Donna Burgers, Anita Blank, Lisa Durst and Joan Johnson for serving our students and staff!


One new procedure we started this quarter is to have all students on the deficiency list turn in his/her phone during study hall.  This will deter distractions and encourage students to use his/her study hall time for homework/studying.  The goal is not to punish students but to create a system that encourages them to do their best and pass all classes.   Students who fail his/her class will need to complete credit recovery to graduate on time.

Deficiency Lists for the Start of 4th Quarter- (New)

As we emphasize the importance of academics and being well-rounded students, athletes and participants of co-curricular activities, please be reminded that we have continued to utilize the Deficiency List.

If a student is on the Deficiency List, students must turn in their phone with their respected study hall teacher(s) to promote students engaging in their school work.   Students should hand in their phone to the teacher at the beginning of class and will get their phones back at the end of class.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Kellenberger.  

The Deficiency List / Academic Eligibility is located in Section 9 of the Secondary Student Handbook (LINK).  

This slide explains the different levels of deficiencies.  Parents and students will receive an emailed letter notifying them if their student is on the deficiency list.  Please continue to support your student who may be struggling with completing school work. 

The picture below shows the different levels of the Deficiency List.
