The Main Street

Horace Maynard Middle School



Can you believe it is already November?! It is crazy how fast the school year is moving along. We had several cool events to end the month of October. Our counselors, Ms. Doyle and Ms. Kilgore, did an excellent job partnering with iCare to plan a great Red Ribbon Week. I am very proud of the students and how they handled themselves at the in-school basketball game and on our dress-up days. They also did a great job on Halloween following expectations and making it a fun day on Main Street!

We had our 2nd Annual Turnaround Breakfast this past Saturday morning. We were able to celebrate our students who have "turned it around" either academically or behaviorally this school year. This is one of my favorite events that we do the whole year! I loved seeing those students get to celebrate with their families.

Please check out the newsletter below for information on past weeks, future events, and celebrations of staff and students! We have Winter Wonderland coming up very soon! Make sure you check out the flier below!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out!

Be R.E.A.L., not perfect!-

Nurse's Notes from Nurse Christy

Sick season is just around the corner, so here are a few tips for helping us stay strong and healthy. Please make sure that your student is having a good breakfast and lunch everyday. Send a refillable water bottle so that they can stay hydrated throughout the day. Hard candy is an easy way to soothe itchy throats. Toss some hand sanitizer in backpacks for easy hand hygiene. A steady sleep schedule can help fight off illness, so stick with routine as much as possible. Remember that a true fever is anything over 100.3 and students should be fever free for 24 hrs to be in school. Also, if your student is actively vomiting please keep them home as well. If you wish for your student to have medication to keep at school, an adult must bring a new unopened bottle and sign the appropriate forms. Students may not carry medication of any type with them. Here's to a healthy fall!

We want our school to be a family first atmosphere and we will define family as the acronym- Forget About Me I Love You. We want our students to learn to serve others and this will also align to our core values.

Shout out to our October FAM1LY Members of the Month and our October Sneaky Devil! Mr. Kear and Ms. Hickman were voted as the FAM1LY Members of the Month and Mr. Lincoln is our Sneaky Devil! We are very lucky to have these folks working with our students everyday!
