Have you created a "graduation team" for your child?
So, what's a Graduation Team? We've all heard the adage, "It takes a village to raise a child." A graduation team is pretty much the same thing. Parents, you should select responsible adults in your child's life, like grandparents, aunts, uncles, and older mature siblings, who can help provide consistent motivation to your 8th grader to stay on track for graduation, develop mature and responsible behaviors, and set goals for high school and post-graduation.
DRESS CODE: The dress code is strictly enforced. Please adhere to the dress code. We want our students to look and act as responsible students.
PARENT Involvement: I will offer various activities throughout the year that provide parents or grandparents the opportunity to engage in your child's education. Please don't be shy!
HMS/HCBE Handbook: All school and system rules and procedures are clearly explained in this useful resource, which is posted online on the HMS webpage. There is a Spanish version online through the HCBE website under the Parental tab.
