Weekly Schedule for September 19-23.
HMS Open House Information: Parents, you are invited to come to our open house on Thursday, September 15. The event will run from 5-7 p.m. and offers you a chance to speak with your student's teachers. It is an open format, so you may speak with your teachers in any order. Calendar information, and contact information will also be available. We look forward to seeing you!
There has been a change in the football schedule this week. Our game on Wednesday will not be at Bush MS, but now will be at Miller Jr. High. A shorter drive, at least! Kickoff is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. Here is a link to our most up to date schedules, but for those who are new to middle school athletics, changes DO happen, so please check it often! https://www.arbiterlive.com/Teams?entityId=33572
Parents- A friendly reminder to call the office before 1:30 for any changes to after school routine! (riding the bus home vs. getting picked up, someone else picking up, etc.) Thank You!
Due to the smoke in the air, cross-country practice is cancelled for Friday, September 9. Students on the team will be available for being picked up or taking the bus home right after school.
Week at a Glance for next week: Some highlights: Sports begin competition with all three in action! First Friday Early Release of the year (1:50 @ HMS).
Students and Parents: We were informed that the After School Program will not begin until October. There is apparently some retooling going on in the program. It was originally set to begin next week. There will be no After School Program until further notice. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please call the office if you have further questions, and stay tuned for updates!
Open House Change of Date--HMS is moving its open house from Thursday, September 8 to Thursday September 15. This is due largely to the fact that we didn't want to compete with a varsity Football game also scheduled for that evening. It created conflicting events for some of our parents and staff. We are sorry for the last minute change. If you have questions, please call our office at 360-538-8220.
Parents--Chromebook forms are coming home with your student. These forms allow them to check out a chromebook for the year. Please read through them, and if you agree, sign the form and have your student return it to their first period teacher. If you have questions, please call us at 360-538-8220.
