It is the vision of HeMS to work collaboratively with parents, teachers, and the community to guide students to be their own HERO by exhibiting Honesty, Excellence, Respect, and Ownership in every situation, every day.

Hernandez Heroes

Herandez HEROes are honest, demostrate respect, and take ownership every day in every situation.

Highlights from the Week

Students honored veterans at our 8th annual Hernandez Veterans Day Celebration

We celebrated Rivalry Week that began with a spirited pep rally, continued with spirit wear days, and ended with our last game of the season against Hopewell Middle School.

Students in Ms. Hawkins' sixth grade math class successfully solve math problems to take a chance at removing a piece from the Jenga puzzle.

Hernandez 7th Graders Are Teaming Up with Austin Well Aware for Their International Baccalaureate (IB) Community Service Project This Year

As part of our Well Aware joint service project this year (The Ripple Effect of Water), each of the grades has a specific focus. Our 7th graders are currently studying the science behind clean water as part of their unit on ANALYZING ECOSYSTEMS .

On Wednesday, Nov. 7, two representatives (Jessica and Erin) from Well Aware linked our 7th grade Science students with Well Aware's technical team and hydrogeologist currently in east Africa.

The students were excited to see their team 1/2 way around the world, and see the science behind the drilling of a new well!
