Welcome to January Hidden River Families!

Greetings HRM Families!

I hope the holiday season was great for you and your families for me it was a little hectic but, as always, very enjoyable. As we head into the new year we are quickly approaching the end of Term 2, which marks the half-way point of the school year. This is a great time for you to have a short sit-down with your student, talk about their classes and how they are progressing, and give them the support and encouragement that they may need to push through and finish Term 2 with their best effort. If you want to be specific, don't hesitate ask them about their Term 2 goals that they should have set in their student agendas. All of our students set an academic goal for each of their classes as well as a goal around each of our Core Values. Sometimes it may seem like just another "thing" that we do here at HRM, but really it's intended to help students learn the important life skill of setting goals and also helps them see that we value their best effort, both academically and behaviorally. This is a great time of year to have that sort check in with them.

As we head towards the spring we start to add a bunch of extra "stuff" our plates things like registering students for the next school year, the state testing for Math and ELA that happens in April/May, hosting tours and informational nights for the incoming students (this goes for the kids heading off to the high school as well), and much more. Please keep your eyes peeled for e-mails and reminders in our newsletters so you don't miss important dates and events this spring. In this particular newsletter, please note 2 important reminders the changes to the upcoming principal chat dates and also the Blood Drive information. One of our 8th grade students, Margaret Seaney, coordinated this Blood Drive as a part of her Girl Scout Silver Award project and we are super proud of her!

Finally, many of you know that Hidden River is next in line for some construction all new fields, a track, and also an addition to the building that includes more Science classrooms, an Art room, and an expanded kitchen. This new "wing" of the building will be built on the back-side of the library towards the three basketball hoops and the tetherball area. We start the planning phase of this project in February and would like 2-3 willing parents to be a part of our design team. If you are interested, please e-mail me directly and we can talk about what this commitment entails (willeb@monroe.wednet.edu). This is an exciting time and we would really love some parents to be a part of this process.

Once again, thanks for your support of Hidden River 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.
