Congrats to our HMS Scholars Bowl team on their big win over Mountain Brook 465-400 on Tuesday 9/28. Our girl’s volleyball team will be partcipating in the conference tournament this weekend at HMS. Good luck ladies! Also, the HMS Panther football team will be playing at John  Carroll on Thursday as they continue to fight for a 2nd straight conference championship. Come out and support all of our Panthers!

Mrs. Lambrecht and myself will be meeting with all of our students on 9/14 during their PE classes. At the meeting, we will be discussing the new Shelby County Anti-Harrassment policy with the kids. HMS is a great place to go to school, but we do deal with bullying issues from time to time. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for the students. All of our kids will be signing anti-bullying contracts at the meeting. We encourage you to talk to your children about the dangers of bullying others.  Students who violate our policy will be disciplined as follows:

1st Offense- Student will report to Mr. Knight’s office and will receive a warning. Parents will be contacted.

2nd Offense- Student will receive a Saturday School. Parent will be contacted.

3rd Offense and subsequent offenses- Student will be suspended from school.

Big win for the Panthers last night! Great crowd, great band, great cheerleaders, great mascot,  and great dance team. The 8th grade is now 2-0, and the 7th grade is 1-0-1. We have another home game next week vs. Bragg.
