February Events Follow Up
Science Fair Thank you to everyone who attended and / or volunteered for the HMS Science Fair! This year’s event again provided our students a hands-on opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the scientific process. It was truly an awesome sight to see so many great experiments from our students on display!
PTT Notes (Parents & Teachers Together) Our Hacker Parent Group Meeting is the first Thursday of each month at 6:00p.m. at Hacker Middle School. The next meeting is Thursday, April 6th. We hope to see you there. It is a great opportunity to learn what is happening at Hacker. Mountain Home School District Night Out with the Steelheads was a huge success! We had a fun night with 113 people from Hacker in attendance. The Hacker Honor Choir did an amazing job singing the anthem AND we raised a total of $565 for our school! Thank you to everyone who came out. THANK YOU to all of the parents and families that brought in food for the Parent Teacher Conference Potluck. We appreciate your help spoiling our teachers! Final Notes Perhaps it is a byproduct of the long, cold winter or the realization the school year will be over before they know it, but we are experiencing a significant increase in student insensitivity and physicality. While we continue to reinforce our school expectations of being respectful, responsible, positive, and safe we ask you please help us address these issues by taking a moment to remind your student of the value of kindness in all of their words and actions. As always, thank you for your partnership and support in educating your student. It is through this cooperation that we will continue to have a great school year.
