HAC entry for the 2023-2024 school year will be completed by the elementary counselor. Counselors will gather Planning Guides and assist students with inputting their courses into the Home Access Center during classroom guidance lessons. Please note that once students input their courses, please do not go in and make changes. All changes will revert back to the information on their planning guides. Students and families will be able to request changes at a later date to ensure proper documentation and entry. We appreciate your cooperation in following this process.

Principal's Welcome!

Future Coyotes,

It is with great excitement that we prepare to welcome our newest coyotes to Connally Middle School for the 2023-2024 school year. We are more than eager to begin the middle school transition process and have you walking the hallways and visiting our school - your school! Having the opportunity to build relationships with our students early, is a major key to their success in transitioning to middle school. Please use this newsletter as a guide to plan to join us in all of the fun activities we have planned for you. I am so excited you are coming to join our pack!

Welcome to Connally Middle School and I hope to see you soon!

Mr. Drumm, Principal
