Mrs. Recanzone is a staple at HMS and we LOVE it! We definitely have staked a claim to her and will be keeping her for many years to come! Not only does she go above and beyond on the daily, but she has brought a whole new meaning to group work in her classroom, with a student engaging in a little non-traditional learning this past quarter through use of our Chromebooks. There is no barrier to great for her to overcome, and no challenge that tames her smile and positivity! Our goal at HMS is ensure each and every student knows how important they are and how much we care! Mrs. Recanzone is a shinning example of how this investment in students impacts our culture, student self esteem and ultimately, our students academic success!

Kids Club of Harney County (Kids Club) offers Friday Academy (FA) for students 6th -8th grades who are failing one or more core classes. The program takes place at Hines Middle School on Friday mornings during the school year, and is administered by Kids Club with cooperation from Harney County School District #3. The students identified for the program are provided academic support and engagement including dedicated homework/tutoring time; Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM); physical and team building activities, breakfast and lunch, and free transportation via Dial-A-Ride as needed. Hines Middle School teachers are key staff during Friday Academy, helping students become more comfortable engaging with their teachers and in their own education.
