It is time to order your child’s school supply kits for the 2013-14 school year! Please go to www.epipacks.com, School Code: HIN022 (zero, two, two). Remember to order the kit for the grade your child will be entering next year, not their current grade. Ordering will continue through June 23, 2013. After that date, all orders are final.
REMINDER: This is for ordering school supply kits only! Online registration is separate. If you have any questions please contact Laura Glenn or Jan Burr at SchoolSupplies@hmspto.org.
Mark your calendars! Back to School Day is set for Wednesday, August 14, 2013. During this important open house, all HMS students will be able to pick up their class schedule and bus route information as well as “walk” their new schedules and set up their lockers. Pre-ordered school supply kits and locks will be distributed, Spartan SpiritWear will be available for purchase, student I.D. card photos will be taken and medications can be turned in to the nurse. Quest Food Services, the hot lunch provider at HMS, will be on hand to process lunch sign-ups. Look for more information as the date draws near via the HMS eblast. If you have any questions, please contact Dawn Simon, Cathy Daly or Nancy Hamp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The HMS PE dept. participated in the Raging Waves Plunge into Fitness program this spring. Because of our participation we have been offered a discount for our extended family. See details if you are interested.
Peer Leadership Club would like to thank HMS students, staff, and the local community for all your support with Ignite the Fight this year. Together we raised over $4,000 for the Avon Women’s Foundation to use in the fight against breast cancer.
As the school year ends, we would like to thank our PTO Committee Chairs for all the work they have done this year. We couldn’t have had such a great year without you all! Thanks also to everyone who volunteered time to help on a PTO committee. All of you make HMS such a wonderful and special place for our children. We would also like to thank our Executive Board members, and Mr. Pena, Dr. Henrikson, and Mr. May for a great year. It was a pleasure working with you all!
