Students & Parents: Please review the following announcement from Coach Knight…….

Dear Parents:

Beginning Monday January 9th, HMS will be offering a Math Think Tank in the mornings from 7:20-7:45 in the computer lab, A-119. We will have a math teacher in there each day to assist students with any questions they may have. 8th grade Algebra I students will also be in the lab each day to assist students with homework. Students who are currently working on our “Fast Math” computer program will also use this time in the lab.

If your child needs extra help in math, please encourage them to take advantage of this opportunity.


Scott Knight

If you feel your student would benefit from additional help in math, please allow your child to get to school a few minutes early on any morning of the week and have them report to the computer lab for extra help. The Math Dept is so excited to be able to offer this extra support to our students and we want to encourage all students to take advantage of having a math teacher available to them before school!

Have a terrific Monday night and let’s just say, “Roll Tide Roll……”
