Hidden River Middle School


Brett WilleJune 11, 2015

Hello Hidden River Families!

The end of the school year is upon us and I don't think I can recall a school year that seemed to go by so quickly as this one. This time of year is one of celebration, reflection, and certainly a little anticipation for the summertime rest and relaxation that is just around the corner. This week on Tuesday morning we held our annual Honor Roll Breakfast, honoring all of our high-achieving students from this year and several 8th graders that have had outstanding commitment to their educaon over their 3 years here at HRM. We had 114 students this year remain on the honor roll with a 3.5 GPA or higher for the entire school year, which is awesome! That's over 25% of our students achieving at a high level, 14 more than we had last school year. We also recognized 15 "Top Hawk" students with a 4.0 GPA for all of this school year and 13 "All Star" 8th graders that have been on the honor roll all 3 years here at HRM. What a huge impact all of these amazing students have had on our school as they set a high academic example for the rest of the students to follow, in addition to being great examples with their behavior and leadership. This week on Thursday we also will be recognizing many other students at our awards assembly … students
receiving different awards for their participation and success in Band, WEB, Drama, etc. This is another great time for us as we celebrate our students that have gone above and beyond to get involved and make a difference here. We are so proud of all these students being recognized …. way to go Hawks!

I also want to wish our 8th graders a happy farewell as they head off to high-school life. This 8th grade class has been wonderful and I couldn't think of a better group of students to lead our school as I begin my own leadership here at Hidden River. These kids have made some wonderful memories here and
have certainly had a positive impact on our school. From their amazing Drama production this year, their successful performances in Band, their positive impact in starting our WEB program, to their successes in sports and academics … these students are leaving their mark on Hidden River and we are so grateful for
the opportunity we had to see them through their middle school years. A special congratulations are in order for Thomas Cripe and Darian Smith, our 2014-15 Hawks of the Year. These students were chosen by the faculty for being the best models of our Core Values here at Hidden River. Their Positive Attitude,
Integrity, Respect, Commitment, and service to their Community have stood out among the rest, and they are being honored and recognized as top examples of what we believe are critical values, not only in school but in life. Way to go Thomas and Darian! Finally, we have one Principal Award winner this year,
Nicole Martin, who has maintained a 4.0 for all of her time here at HRM. What an amazing accomplishment and example of perseverance and commitment, … way to go Nicole!

It's been a wonderful 1st year for me at Hidden River … the staff, students, and parents here have been unbelievable and I look forward to many years to come. Enjoy a restful summer and we'll see many of you back here in September!

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.
