I am excited to welcome our Hosler families back to the 2020-2021 school year. It has been my honor to serve our students, their families and the community of Lynwood for what will be my third year as Principal. Our parents and their involvement in our organized committees has made all the difference. Please refer to the Hosler Middle School website to learn more about how our parents can be a part of our school committees and activities.
Although these are challenging times, Hosler Middle School remains committed to providing our students with quality instruction via Distance Learning. We will continue to offer programs and activities that will help prepare them for high school and beyond. We also understand that in these unprecedented times, our students may be experiencing an array of feelings beyond those that are normally associated with adolescents and the middle school age years. Now more than ever, communication and collaboration between our parents, staff and students will be critical. If there should ever be a concern please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers, staff or administration. Together we can find solutions that can ensure our students' social-emotional needs are met and they stay on track towards meeting their educational goals.
Hosler teachers are committed to serving our students. Our new way of engaging in the learning process in the form of Distance Learning is a new way of instruction for our teachers and they have stepped up to the challenge. Teaching with the use of technology can enhance the learning experience in many ways. However, as with anything new and especially with technology, we are bound to hit some glitches. We ask for your patience when these glitches occur. We will work diligently to resolve the problem as soon as it is possible. In addition, our dedicated staff will meet regularly throughout the year to collaborate on instruction, technology and programming to better meet the needs of all students.
The middle school years are a critical and a transitional time for students. As students begin to develop independence, Hosler Middle School helps guide our students to make good decisions and choices by implementing our school’s core values: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe including while engaging in Distance Learning. Please refer to your student’s classroom syllabus or refer to the student handbook for details.
In an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of all our students, their families, our staff, and the community, we are asking that our students and their families follow the safety guidelines established by the Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles County Health Department to prevent the spread of COVID19 whenever on school campus. Please wear a face covering when in public; including when on the Hosler campus. Wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds. Finally, practice social distancing of 6 feet whenever possible. We are in this together!
Wishing all our families a healthy and safe start of the new school year and beyond.
The mission of Fred W. Hosler Middle School is to provide a safe environment that is conducive to learning. All students will be motivated to participate in the Standard Based learning process, which will prepare them to work collaboratively in a safe environment. This will allow for growth in a culturally diverse and technologically advanced global market. It is our ultimate goal to provide ‘A learning community preparing students for the University and Workplace.’
HOSLER MIDDLE SCHOOL is committed to providing an environment that will enhance the minds, lives and values of our students through an established innovative holistic program that enables students to achieve at higher level of academic, social and leadership skills.
HOSLER MIDDLE SCHOOL staff is committed to ensuring a physically and psychologically safe environment for its learning community, by working closely with students, parents, community members and law enforcement agencies.
HOSLER MIDDLE SCHOOL courses, activities and programs are created to meet the academic and social needs of students. Instruction focuses on providing skills that will teach students to access and use information. Teachers recognize that serving the diversity of individual needs requires student-centered innovative teaching that enhances students’ learning experiences, collaboration among staff, flexibility, and cooperative learning experiences for student and teachers.
HOSLER MIDDLE SCHOOL believes that for a student to grow in their personal and academic lives the HMS staff must be committed to serving in a variety of ways, including teaching, counseling, club advisors, coaching and other extra/co-curricular activities.
HOSLER MIDDLE SCHOOL teachers, administrators and staff work closely with parents and students to evaluate a student’s quality of work. Staff members at HMS are committed to creating partnerships with parents as well as maintaining open channels of communication with community members, community agencies and businesses. At HMS we believe that parent involvement is important when defining, implementing and evaluating curriculum and student learning.
