Dear HMS Families,
As we move into the winter break, please take some time. Take time as a family to enjoy each other. Take time to do things you may not normally do because of a hectic family schedule. Take time to be thankful. It is because of the students and families of this school community which make it a great place. Thank you for your continued partnership as we work together to help our students.
Scott Saettel, Principal

Attention All 8th Students and Parents
On October 14, 2015, all GCISD 8th graders took the redesigned PSAT 8/9 Assessment. The PSAT 8/9 Assessment will show what areas students are doing well, and what areas students should work on to get ready for the SAT and college.
PSAT 8/9 scores will be available on January 7, 2016. In order to access scores online, students must create a College Board account. If students already have SAT, AP, PSAT/NMSQT, CLEP, and/or BigFuture account, they will already have access.
Follow this link to create a College Board account.
The College Board has formed a College Readiness partnership with Khan Academy. Once students access their PSAT 8/9 scores, students will have free, on-line access to official SAT Practice from the College Board and Khan Academy. For more information, please visit Khan Academy SAT.
