It's scheduling season at HMS for students in grades 5-8! We will have a meeting with students by grade level in the coming weeks to talk with them about their options for next school year. A paper will be sent home for students with all course options. The teachers will sign off on any courses that require teacher approval or have academic requirements. We ask that you speak with your child about the scheduling process and sign the scheduling form. All forms for students in grades 5, 6, and 7 will be due to your child's Homeroom teacher on March 1st. The High School Guidance Counselors will come to HMS to meet with our 8th grade students to walk them through the High School Scheduling process. If you have any questions, please contact the HMS Office or your child's teacher.
7th Grade Math Options
Students in 6th grade will have two options for math in 7th grade: Math 7 or Pre Algebra 7. There are requirements for each. One of the requirements that lets us know if students are ready for Pre Algebra is their score on the Algebra Prognosis Exam. This exam is not factored into the students' grade, but it teaches the students some algebraic thinking and then asks them to complete problems based on the guidance it provides. This exam will be given to the students in the next few weeks so that we can use the scores to help us properly place students into their math class for next school year. If you have any questions about this, please contact your child's math teacher.
