Don’t forget about the 6th grade Open House on Tuesday night. I am looking forward to meeting the parents of this great group.

Big wins last Thursday by the 7th and 8th grade football teams. The 7th grade won a thriller in OT over Oxford 12-7, and the 8th grade crushed Oxford 29-8. Both teams are now 1-0 and return to action this Thursday in Columbiana against CMS. Also kudos to the HMS cheerleaders and dance team for all of the hard work they have been doing.

We are meeting with all of our kids today during PE to discuss the HMS Bullying Policy. Every student will sign a pledge to not participate or allow bullying to go on at HMS.

The football, volleyball, and cross country teams have been working hard in the extreme heat to get ready for the upcoming season. The kids and coaches have been putting in long hours in order to be prepared for our tough conference. Please check our website for schedules and come out and support our HMS Panthers!!

Very impressed with our 6th graders so far. They have done everything that we

have asked them to do. Most of them have already conquered their lockers.

They are following the rules in the cafeteria and hallways. Keep up the good


All of our students were out in 2 minutes and

20 seconds. The goal is 2 minutes. HFD was

satisifed with our procedures. The kids did

everything that we asked them to do.

What a great crowd last night for Meet the

Panthers. We are so lucky to have the

community support and caring coaches.

HMS is the BEST!!!!

So proud of our students today. What a great

opening day. 6th grade parents, please make

sure that your child knows what bus to ride

home on Friday.

It seems like yesterday that we said goodbye to

2010-2011. We are excited to begin our 4th year

at HMS. We just completed a very successful

Camp Panther for our incoming 6th graders. We

had over 290 kids here. Parents, please refer to

the List Serve that was sent out about our

transportation procedures. It is going to be a

great year at HMS!
