Week of 1/18/22
Building and Connecting Everyday
As we focus our school year on "Building and Connecting", we want every student to be involved and noticed at HEMMS. We are continuing to deploy many activities and programing. Some of them are: Anime Club, afterschool tutoring, Connections Time (Advisory), athletics and many others.
The H.E. McCracken Middle School mission is to build on the academic foundation of diverse
learners and establish high expectations for contributing, independent, and collaborative members of an ever increasing technologically driven society.
Our Vision is to promote:
high expectations for all learners
critical thinking skills
authentic, real world applications
the strength of our diversity
Health and Safety
It's very important that parents do not send students who are sick, running a fever, or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms to school.
The H.E. McCracken Middle School COVID19 Handbook has been developed to provide school level procedures and information to parents. You can access it HERE.
Parents are directed to take a look at all building and district updates on the website.
