Horace Maynard Middle School

We are getting closer..........

One week closer! WE cannot wait to have our students back in the school! We are looking forward to a great year!

Kickin' It with Kilgore:

It was another great week at HMMS! I have had the pleasure to be able to meet with more staff, parents, students, and community members as we continue to plan for this upcoming school year. This is a special place and I am honored to be a part of this community and cannot wait to see the great things that are going to happen here in 2022-2023 school year and in the future. I look forward to meeting more of you at next week's Back to School Nights!

Go Devils!
