Special Education Professional, Miss Lusia Lowry, has taken it to the next level these past couple of weeks! Not only is she the supporter of all students serviced within her program, but she is also known throughout the school for her smiling face, enthusiasm and positive energy with all students. She knows them by name, wants to be a part of their activities and is seen at almost all school functions. Miss Lowry is a staunch advocate for students, a first responder and a tireless supporter of all things kids. Miss Lowry, you're one of a kind!

Canned Food Drive

Our Canned Food Drive has begun! Each student must bring three pounds of food, to be eligible for the Elk’s sponsored Valentine Dance…but, our school goal is 1400 pounds to EARN that dance! Please take your food donations to Advisory, where it will be recorded each day. Let’s all step up and help with this important community project! If we don’t meet the 1400 pound goal, we don’t get the Valentine Dance! Please don’t wait until the last minute! Let's DO THIS!

Kids Club of Harney County (Kids Club) offers Friday Academy (FA) for students 6th -8th grades who are failing one or more core classes. The program takes place at Hines Middle School on Friday mornings during the school year, and is administered by Kids Club with cooperation from Harney County School District #3. The students identified for the program are provided academic support and engagement including dedicated homework/tutoring time; Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM); physical and team building activities, breakfast and lunch, and free transportation via Dial-A-Ride as needed. Hines Middle School teachers are key staff during Friday Academy, helping students become more comfortable engaging with their teachers and in their own education. Students complete an average of two to five assignments each FA, and collectively complete anywhere from 30-65 assignments a week!

Application (link below) can be completed and emailed to Principal Waggoner @ and can also be obtained from the Hines Middle School office or Kids Club of Harney County. If you have any questions, or would like more information, do not hesitate to reach out to Kids Club at 541-573-7036.
