Hidden River Middle School


Brett Wille

Happy Fall Hidden River Families!

We are full-swing into things here at school and, so far (knock on wood) things are going very smoothly! The students have been outstanding, the 6th graders have transitioned nicely, and the staff are hard at work figuring out how we can ensure ALL students are successful. Speaking of ALL, that's really been our focus as a staff as we start another year. We've spent a lot of our time together discussing why ALL students must learn at a high level in middle school and what life looks like - statistically speaking - for students that don't make it successfully through high school and beyond. Mr. Delp and I ran a short assembly to start the school year, communicating to our students this same message ... that we care about each one of them and that we are going to work hard to make sure they all are successful here. Then we shared with them the "why" behind that message. Instead of focusing on all of the "rules and procedures" of middle school, like we usually do, we felt like being real and honest with the students about how important what they are learning really is ... we felt like taking that approach would have a greater impact. You could hear a pin drop during that assembly and it definitely seemed like the students heard the message.

As a staff, in order to reach our goal of ALL students learning at a high level, we also made some commitments to each other that will help us reach that goal. We adopted the commitments below from the Mayo Clinic, arguably the world's greatest hospital and medical care facility. The Mayo Clinic was founded in the mid 1800's and was built upon some core principles and commitments that they believed would ensure that they fully met the needs of their patients. Because we believe that the work we do in education truly is "life-saving" work, we felt like these commitments were very applicable to our goals to meet the needs of our students as well. Once again, thanks for your partnership with using this endeavor and we are excited about what the rest of the school year has in store. Go HAWKS!

ALL Means ALL - At Hidden River ...
The needs of the student come first
We will meet those needs through unsurpassed collaboration
No one is big enough to work independently of others
The combined wisdom of one's peers is greater than any individual

We will use a teamwork approach, share our insights, and take a continuous interest in each other's growth.

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.
