A special thanks to all of the students and families that made it out to Curriculum Night last
week. We had a larger turnout than we've had in several years and it was great for us to have the
opportunity to share with you some of the important things we are focusing on at Hidden River on
behalf of our students. A reminder that Conference Week is just around the corner, happening the
last week of October. This is a great me for you to come in and have a few 1 on 1 minutes with
each teacher, hearing about the progress your student is making as well as any areas of concern
early in the school year. Your partnership with us on behalf of your student(s) is paramount and we
hope to see you there!
As we head into the 2nd month of school we are geng set to ramp up with a couple of our intervenons that we have in place here for students that need a lile extra me and support for their
learning. ZAP (Zeros Aren't Permied) is in full-swing now … this is our lunch-me intervenon for
students that have not completed important homework and assignments. Our message to students
is simple … if we assign the work, we believe that it's important and not doing it isn't an opon. Students get "Zapped" for the next school day and in many cases students decide to go ahead
and just complete and turn in the work. Last year our ZAP intervenon contributed to about 1/2 the
amount of failing grades being issued compared to the previous school year which is awesome! The
second intervenon that is starng next week is our Hawk Time. Hawk Time is about a 25 minute
poron of the day (this year right before lunch) where students can get extra help in classes where
they need it. In some cases teachers will be "stamping" student Agendas, inving them to special reteach or skill focused sessions where they can get targeted support in areas where they are struggling. Students that haven't been stamped have the choice to aend any of the open sessions in the
building … classrooms offering extension/enrichment acvies, silent reading zones, open study hall,
"maker-spaces" in the library, art projects, general help sessions for Math/Reading/Science, targeted
band instrucon, etc. This is the first me we have been this intenonal with Hawk Time and we are
hoping it will have a huge impact on student achievement and success in class.
Finally, a special congratulaons is in order for Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith has applied for and accepted
a secretarial posion at Monroe High School. Mrs. Smith has been an integral member of the HRM
staff for 14 years as an outstanding para-educator so this is a bier-sweet moment for our staff … we
are happy for Mrs. Smith but extremely sad to see her go! Good luck to you Mrs. Smith … your posive atude, hard work, and up-liing spirit will certainly be missed here at HRM!

Students in grades 6-8 receive information about Human Sexuality every year as part of the Monroe Public
Schools’ Health Curriculum. Students also receive instruction about the prevention of HIV/AIDS. Families are
encouraged to talk with their children at home about these important subjects. As our education partners, families
are invited to learn more about this instruction Tuesday, October 20, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Park Place Middle
School library. Parents have always been encouraged to preview the curriculum materials specific to each grade
level. Parents who wish to exclude their child(ren) from participation in the Human Sexuality unit are not required
to attend the meeting but must complete an exclusion form. These forms are available in the main office at your
child’s school. Parents who wish to exclude their child(ren) from participation in the HIV/AIDS portion of the
Health Curriculum are required by state law to preview materials before completing an exclusion form. These materials will be available at the October 20th meeting and exclusion forms may be completed that night. Forms are
also available online at www.monroe.wednet.edu/PAGES/forms.
For those unable to attend the evening meeting, instructional materials for Human Sexuality and HIV/AIDS will be
available for preview at the Student Services Department located at the Administration Building, 200 East Fremont
Street, Monroe, WA, 360.804.2600.
PRINCIPAL CHATS
Parents—Mark your calendar for our Principal Chats

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and
at Hidden River our theme is "The End of Bullying
Begins With Me". Our commitments are:
1) We will not bully others
2) We will help students who are bullied
3) We will include students who are left out and
4) If we know someone is being bullied, we will tell a
trusted adult - at home or at school. Please join us
in raising awareness for bullying and working to end
bullying completely in our community.

We are looking forward to seeing you then!
We are sad to say good-bye to our staff member, Mrs. Smith, as she
takes a new position at Monroe High School. Mrs. Smith has been a
part of the Hidden River staff for the past 14 years. Her own two
boys attended Hidden River, and she has given greatly of her time
and support so that Hidden River continued to be the best it could
be. Her talents are many: she has worked as a para-educator with
our students in small groups in a variety of subjects, she has been
first hand support for our librarians on a daily basis, she has managed our book room for the past several years –
checking text books out to staff and students, she has painted our
backdrops for the annual drama production and done an outstanding
job capturing the character of the production with her artistic talent, she has assisted Mrs. Brady in designing our student showcase
posters which are displayed in the front hall. Needless to say, she
will be greatly missed! Though it is our loss, we wish her well and
every success in her new position and it will be fun for her to see
our middle school students as they mature into young adults at the
high school.
Mrs. Smith…we thank you for all your years of service to HRMS. WE WILL
MISS YOU!
NEWS FROM THE LIBRARY
Dear Parents,
In this age of technology, how do we keep up with all changes? How do we monitor our children
and the digital world they live in? It is ever more important to talk to our children about digital
media and technology. We call these strategies Digital Citizenship. From the age of birth to 18,
we teach and mentor our children on how to become good citizens of our country. The same now
holds true for children becoming good citizens in the digital world. Each week I will put
together a little tidbit of information about current trends with kids in the technical world. I hope this
helps you to stay current with what is happening in the teen tech world!
Sincerely,
DeAnn Hermes
HRMS Librarian

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP
This week I’d like to spotlight a picture tend with our youth, an app called Instagram. With quick
access to camera phones, Instagram has become a new favorite social media app for sharing
pictures and video.
How Instagram works: Download the app from your app store. Create an account. Students are
supposed to be 13 to create accounts, but there are many younger kids who have accounts. Take
a picture from the app using your phone and it is immediately downloaded to your Instagram account. Once on the account, the picture is available for any followers to view and comment on.
What you need to know:
The draw to Instagram is the ability to quickly share pictures, but more enticing is the quick feedback kids receive from followers. Instagram subscribers also have access to numerous accounts
of unknown individuals. Please talk with your child about setting privacy settings and being careful
who they accept as followers. Also talk with your student about leaving respectful comments and
how to deal with negative comments he/she may receive. CommonSenseMedia.org is an amazing
site for parents. I will reference them in later newsletters. For more information about Instagram
and a video tutorial, please scan the QR code below:
