Below are a few reminders of the expectations of students in certain key areas. Thank you for your support of these important procedures and policies at Huntley High School. We wish you the best of luck for the 2019-2020 school year.
At HHS we do not have a specific supply list for each class. We recommend you begin the year with basic supplies (folder, paper, pen, pencil). During the first days of class, our teachers will let you know if there are any specific supplies for their classes. If teachers do not give specific supplies, you are free to stay organized as you wish. We are always here to help with organization if you need it!
All students are required to have a graphing calculator. The recommended calculator is the TI-84 Graphing Calculator. Teachers will be using the TI-84 graphing calculator during classroom demonstrations throughout the course. Students will be able to use this calculator for all their high school math courses and also in college.
The calculator is available at most retailers. If purchasing a new calculator for your child, we ask that your child bring the reward points (located on the back of the calculator pack-age) to their math teacher. HHS can use the rewards points that are collected to help receive free Texas Instrument Products for our classrooms.
PE Uniforms & Locks
PE uniforms can be picked-up at the August material pick-up day. If you did not pre-order a uniform or you would like a replacement uniform you can purchase one at the material pick-up as well. Uniforms sets are $20 or you may just purchase t-shirt or shorts individually for $10.
All incoming freshman will have purchased a PE lock (school issued) that they will keep for all four years at HHS. This will be given to them the first week of school. In addition, 10th & 11th graders will need to purchase a lock from their PE teacher in the fall for $5 if they did not do so last year.
Raider Aid Tutoring
Raider Aid is an after-school tutoring program that is available to all students who need extra help in their classes. Raider Aid is open Monday through Thursday after school from 2:40-3:40 pm in C2125. There are 2 certified math teachers in Raider Aid every day that can help answer questions! If your student is struggling, please encourage them to attend Raider Aid to receive extra help. A free activity bus is also available (sign-up is required; sign up in the Hub).
What if I struggle in a class?
The biggest support for your academic success is your teacher. If you feel you are beginning to struggle in a class, talk with your teacher right away! Advocating for yourself goes a long way to show your teachers you care about your success in their class. Your counselor is also there for your support. Feel free to make an appointment with them to see other supports available at HHS. Don’t forget we have Raider Aid open every period of the day as well as after school for help as well.
