Hello Hawk Families,

Just a reminder that our parent conferences are Tuesday, October 28th and Wednesday, October
29th. We have an afternoon session from12:30 - 3:30 and an evening session from 5:30 - 7:30 on
both days. If you have any concerns about your child's progress or just want to hear how they are
doing in all of their classes, please take advantage of this opportunity. As we work on living out our core value of "Community", parent conferences are such a great way for you to find out how you can partner with us on behalf of your child … I highly encourage you to attend. If you cannot make it on either of those two dates for whatever reason, you always have the option of contacting the teachers directly to set up another time when you can meet to discuss the progress of your child.

As the 1st Quarter nears an end here in the next few weeks, please make sure to keep track of your kid(s) closely. As we know with middle schoolers, they can easily get distracted and lose focus. So many of them have worked extremely hard to keep their grades up and get their assignments in… we want to make sure they finish out the quarter strong. As a staff on our end we've made a big
effort to require that they complete their work, often assigning students to our "ZAP" (Zeros Aren't Permitted) during lunch-time so that they finish their assignments. On some days we've had over 100 students in ZAP, which isn't necessarily a good thing, yet it's sending a clear message to students that we believe the work we are assigning is important and that the "responsible" thing for them to do, as students, is to complete it and turn it in. So, anything you can do on the home front to make sure you monitor their progress and let them know the importance of “finish the quarter strong” is much appreciated.

On another note and as this 2nd month of school nears an end, I want to say how awesome it's been so far to be a part of such an amazing school community. The support that our parents and teachers have shown for our students this year truly reflects our motto that these are "Our Kids" and this is "Our Community". Every day I walk through the doors I feel lucky to serve our staff and our students and I'm continually reminded of how important it is that we all work together towards a common goal. If I can be so bold, I'm proud beyond words of how much our staff has united this year and how intentional they've been to do what is best for kids. Our students truly are at the forefront of every decision that we make at Hidden River and it's a pleasure to work in a school
that has made that commitment. Thanks for taking the time to read this and GO HAWKS!

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
