This Week at HCMS April 21

HCMS Families, 

It’s time! Spring Scantron Assessments are here! Your child has worked hard all year and now it’s time for them to show what they know. I have no doubt they will shine on this assessment. Our National Junior Honor Society shared testing tips with us during advisory last week to get us ready for the big event! 

  • Get plenty of rest the night before the tests 
  • Eat a healthy breakfast to fuel your body and your brain 
  • Have positive attitude and try your best 

Remember that this single assessment makes up 85% of our school’s state report grade. You can help us by making sure your child is at school no later than 8:00 each morning and that they have their laptop charged and ready. 

Our Student Council will host a school wide tailgate themed dance on Friday afternoon to celebrate our students’ hard work and focus during the week. Sixth graders will be at the dance from 1:00-2:00 and seventh/eighth graders from 2:00-3:00. See below for more details.
