Gratitude.

Parents & students, thank you for an exciting two weeks already. We have experienced picture day, sports games, Easy CBM testing, TLA reading, and the start of so much learning! Please see pictures of students and teachers in action as well as updates! Thank you for getting your student to school & on time everyday!

NOTE: social media awareness

Remember to follow your own student on social media to ensure their safety and monitor their posts for inappropriate/mean/crude content. Recently some social media posts have disrupted the learning at school. We cannot have this. We cherish every student's mental, physical, & emotional health at HMS.

HELP!

We changed the shorts dress code to "mid thigh" to help all of our students wear comfortable & affordable clothing. After 2 weeks the shorts keep getting shorter. Please respect the established rule. We believe in consistency and following our handbook. Next week student's will be asked to change or call home for more coverage to be brought to school. Thank you for your help.

Our Motto

Everyday we say our motto: "I am a Harpeth Middle Champion. I know what I stand for. I will never give up." This is important to us because our students need to know what they stand for. We have had numerous talks this week about why students made the decisions they made and what it means they stand for. It has been great hearing negative beliefs turn to positives & self doubt turn into confidence. Our teachers strive to instill these principles into their teaching so our students not only learn more; but, they grow as people, too.

Stay tuned next week for...

Sweet T's Student Champions of the week!
