GROWING UP AND GETTING READY
In eight short weeks, your seventh grader will become an eighth grader with high school looming in the future. How quickly our children seem to grow up without our even realizing it! Now is a good time to ask ourselves…..
Will our student be ready for eighth grade next year?
Hopefully, your student is one of the many students we have at HMS who is now ready for eighth grade. These students can work on their own and solve their own problems without too much help and pushing from their parents. Helping our children with their school work, social problems, relationship problems, etc. is an element of good parenting. However, there are times when too much help is harmful. Instead of our letting students do for themselves, we tend to jump in too quickly to help. This enables students to become too dependent on us. Our children begin to expect everything to be done for them and don’t want to do for themselves. To read more click here.

GCSD Progress Report
Tdap Immunization for Seventh Graders
Rising seventh graders must have the Tdap vaccination or they must submit an objector’s statement prior to the first day of school, Tuesday, August 19, 2014, for students to attend school. Parents must provide their child’s school with documentation of the Tdap immunization, a religious exemption, or a medical exemption. Parents are encouraged to submit document as soon as possible. If documentation is not provided before the first day of school, the student will not be allowed to start school. The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination beginning with the 2013-14 school year.
