HMS Bearcat Bulletin

July 2018

A Note from Ms. Buschmann

Target has 15% off on school supplies for teachers this week, so I took the hint that it is time to get the "Back to School" newsletter out!

After a little rest and relaxation and some time to plan, I am ready to have kids back at HMS building a better community and a better future for themselves brick by brick. Are there enough hints in that sentence to figure out the theme for this year (It's not construction)? If not, you'll just have to see at Open House. Please make note of the several upcoming events listed below including Registration, Open House, the first day of classes, and the Back to School Bash. Keep reading for more information, and I look forward to seeing you soon.

2018-19 Supply List

The document attached below is our 18-19 School Supply list. Please refer to this list and the appropriate grade level when purchasing your supplies for the upcoming year.

Back to School Bash

HMS Student Council will be celebrating Back to School and our first 7th and 8th-grade football scrimmage with a Back to School Bash on September 6 starting at 4:00 p.m. Join us for carnival games and food prior to the football games. T-Shirts for the event will be on sale until August 24. The purchase of a T-shirt (pictured at the right) will also include 10 tickets for carnival games and $2 of food vouchers for any of our food vendors. Save the date, more details to come!

Online Registration

About 60% of HMS students are already registered for the 2018-19 school year- thank you. If you have not yet completed Online Registration for your child, please do so as soon as possible.

To start, log in to Infinite Campus. (If you need login information, contact our technology department, 573.486.3121 x1314.) The online registration link is at the bottom left-hand corner once you log in. It will be helpful to have current contact information for any of your child's emergency contacts as well as current medical diagnoses and medications. We will have a laptop available in the office if you need internet access or would prefer a device to your phone.

You must complete online registration for your student to be scheduled for classes! We will have a registration day on August 2, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Fifth and 6th-grade students will be able to pick up letters from their homeroom teacher on that day, and 7th and 8th-grade students will be allowed to choose their locker if their registration has been completed and approved by that date.

Registration Day

Thursday, Aug. 2nd, 8am-6pm

Hermann Middle School

Families with completed Online Registration forms will be able to pick up 5th and 6th-grade welcome letters from homeroom teachers and choose 7th and 8th-grade lockers. This will also be an opportunity to complete registrations and/or get help with registration forms.
