MathCounts Chapter Competition
Hidden Valley Middle School had eight students compete virtually at the regional level in the MathCounts Chapter Competition. We had two students qualify to move on to the Chapter Invitational Competition, where they will compete to move on to the state competition. 8th grader Jacob Stewart was our top scoring student and ranked 5th in our region. 6th grader Aryan Madan ranked 7th and was in the top 20% of the region. Please wish these two good luck as they proudly represent Hidden Valley Middle and move on to the next level of MathCounts on February 25.

SOAR Card Recipients
Students can receive SOAR cards at HVMS by meeting our school-wide expectations of being safe, organized, accountable, and respectful.

The following students have received SOAR cards since our last newsletter:
We ask that parents and students direct their technical support requests to email@example.com. This email account is intended to serve our students who are either online only or off campus when the request is sent. Students attending school should notify their teachers of any technical issues so that we may resolve those problems at school.
Please keep in mind that our IT support staff works regular school hours and that requests made after hours or during the weekend will not be addressed until those hours of operation.
