Hidden River Middle School


Brett Wille

Greetings Hidden River Families
What a great start to the school year it's been around here! As always it's pretty hectic getting things rolling, but the kids have been great, the 6th graders seem to be settling in, and the year is off to a nice and smooth start. It was great to see many of you out at the back to school BBQ a special thanks to the PTO for putting on another great event. Speaking of the PTO, several of our PTO members are "graduating" to the high school after this school year with their 8th graders being the last of their kids here at Hidden River. So we need several parents to step up and fill in those very big shoes! It would be great to start that transition now so that when the end of the school year is upon us, the transition is seamless and the PTO can continue to function as well as it always has. If you are interested, please let me know or you can reach out to any of our current PTO members. Our next PTO meeting is at 7:00 on Tuesday, September 20th, here at Hidden River. You are always welcome to attend and, if you are interested in being an active member, please show up next Tuesday!

One of the things I'm most proud of to start the school year is our "HAWKS Way" program that the students were introduced to last week. Since Hidden River opened in 1999 it has been a "Make Your Day" school a discipline and citizenship program that has been very strong and successful here. However, over the past few years we've started to see Make Your Day break down a bit w/ a lack of consistency in how it has been implemented and we've heard some very pointed feedback from both students and parents about the program. So, last year Mr. Delp and a team of dedicated staff and community members began to research other options and approaches that would fit Hidden River better. They came to the conclusion that a more positive approach would be more effective and created a program that we are calling our HAWKS Way program it's all wrapped around our Core Values, has a strong component of student reflection when they do make poor choices, we feel it has a better parent communication component,and all in all it's a much more positive and proactive approach. I'm super excited about this step in the right direction and I'm very proud of all the staff members that spent hours of their summer putting all of this together for the start of the school year. Once again, I think this is just one more way that we are working together to make this middle school the greatest middle school for our kids. Thanks for your continued support 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.
