SOARing Eagle Challenge Begins Jan 11

This year, our annual Hancock Fun Run will have some fun new changes! We are doing a Hancock “SOARing Eagle Challenge”. Our Eagle Challenge will still be a fundraiser, but instead of running, you will have a choice of exercise, reading, or acts of kindness- or ALL THREE!!


FundHub powered by Get Movin’ gives us an online partnership to expand beyond our own community for donation support through online Student Fundraising Webpages. This allows us to accept credit/debit card donations from all over the world, in addition to cash. 

To participate, please follow the steps on the attached flyer.  Stay tuned for more information on how to track your activities and incentives for your student’s fundraising efforts!  Sign up Instructions Flyer

Character Counts!

Hancock’s counseling office leads a character education program which focuses on the six pillars of character.  Each month we focus on one pillar through visual aids, classroom lessons and campus activities that remind our students about the importance of Good Character. Each of the color-coordinated pillars help instill a positive school climate and a culture of kindness, making schools a safe environment for students to learn. We encourage our families to extend the program to discussions and activities at home as well because the more students hear about good character, the more important it will be!  For more information please contact our school counselor Mrs. MacMaster at

Questions/Concerns About Distance Learning Technology Issues

Does your child’s Chromebook have technical issues?  When  you call the IT help line below for support, one of the first questions you’ll be asked is have you updated your child’s Chromebook lately?  To do that please come to the school parking lot or bench outside with the Chromebook shutdown.  Not just closed.  Boot up your Chromebook and look for the wireless connection to show it is connected to i21WIRELESS.  RESTART your Chromebook.  Please note:  Do Not Shutdown.  That does not update the computer.  It must be on Restart.  Let it run any updates fully.  Once you are able to login do so and open up Clever or other applications you normally use.  Then RESTART your computer again.  IT informed Mrs. Hightower it takes two RESTARTS (Not Shutdown) in order to fully update your Chromebook. 

Call the Family Technology Support Line at 619-732-1400 for initial troubleshooting. Support Centers are available to exchange devices SDUSD Family Technology Support Center Locations 2020-21.  The district also has a support website with lots of information and guides for troubleshooting.  District Technology Support Website
