The HMS Family Digest


Ready for a GREAT week!

Parents & students, we appreciate you all. Please ask your child about their learning and grades that represent the learning. Teachers will be making phone calls to parents of those students who are struggling to show their learning and potentially need a parent/teacher conference. We want the success of all children!

Your educational leaders,

Dr. Fowler and Ms. Bates

Field trip reminder

In our student handbook under field trips it states "Field trips are a privilege and if behavior at school warrants, field trips may be taken away especially if failing a subject."

Every grade puts certain parameters on field trips as an incentive for behavior and learning. Example perimeters teachers have set are : attending ISS or if a child is failing a subject. The goal is that all children would go on the field trips as they are great opportunities. Thx for your help in this.
