Hoosick Falls Middle School

September 26, 2021

Happy Fall! It is hard to believe that it is almost October! It is wonderful having the students back in the building. They have settled into a school routine and have adjusted well to their daily schedules.

We will be starting after school extra help sessions and clubs in October. Students will be riding the 3:30 bus home, but will need a bus pass if they plan to stay. Teachers will be sending out club information in the next few weeks. Teachers will be after school two days each week for extra help. They will be letting you know which days days they will be available for extra help.

I hope that you were all able to access our virtual Open House. The link can be found on the Middle School home webpage. While I know that having a virtual open house was not ideal for anyone, please know that the teachers still worked hard to provide you with the same information that they would have if you were able to join us in person. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teachers if you have any questions.

On Friday, September 17th, we were fortunate to have Megan Murphy, the founder of The Kindness Project, present to the Middle School students. Megan shared her personal story of creating a kindness rocks garden and how it spread across the world. Here is a link to the website for The Kindness Rocks Project if you would like more information: https://www.thekindnessrocksproject.com/. We will be creating our own kindness rocks garden that will be placed out in front of the Middle School entrance.

I encourage all parents of students in grades 7-8 to create a parent portal. To create an account, please click on the link below and follow the directions. The parent portal can be accessed from the school's homepage - http://hoosickfallscsd.org/hfcs-parent-portal/.

Mr. Hall has also created a video explaining the process of creating a parent portal - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WigDenAk7eA.
