Principal Message Regarding Important Information for the 2018-2019 School Year Highlands Middle School

Hello HMS Families,

I hope your summer is off to a great start and all of our Bluebird families are getting to spend some time enjoying the sun and having an amazing time together.  As a courtesy, I wanted to communicate as early as possible some dates and items of importance for the upcoming school year.  First, the supply lists for the 2018-2019 school year are now posted on our web page under QuickLinks. Next, throughout the summer I will try to periodically send information about important dates and in July send a mailer home.  We have a couple of key events that happen in August and I want to be sure everyone is aware of those so families may plan accordingly.  Two specific events of importance in August are 6th Grade Transition Day and HMS Getting Ready Day.
