    September is Kindness Month at Hercules Middle School. We will be highlighting our PBIS value or Titans are Kind all month long.

    Thursday is our first coffee chat with the principal of the school year. The coffee chat will be in room 513 from 9-10 AM. This is a time for you to come out and meet other parents, hear updated information and ask lots of questions. Be sure to sign in at the office before heading to the room.

    Students, please remember to bring and wear your IDs every day. They are an important part of our overall site safety plan. Parents, please make sure your student have their IDs with their back packs when they leave for school in the morning. And lastly, remember that tomorrow is Labor Day, there is no school on Monday, classes resume Tuesday. Have a great day and Stay Titan Strong

    Greetings Junior Titan families, this is principal Ryan Shaw with some important updates. 

    The first week of school has concluded, and what a great week it was. We were able to cover a lot of material this week. Students received their planners in English classes. Math and Science classes taught digital citizenship lessons. Be sure to ask your student about their digital footprint. Students went to the library to get their tablets in their History class, and finally all students had lessons on Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) in their PE and elective classes. A copy of the school's PBIS matrix is found on page 11 of the student planner. Ask your student what our three Titan values are.

    Students interested in volleyball and flag football sign ups will be next week. There is a meeting on Monday afterschool in the cafeteria for any student wanting to learn more about flag football.

    Dress code issues from week one. Biker shorts are not school appropriate attire, please find an alternative. Ripped jeans are OK if the rips are not above finger tips. Lastly, sagging is not appropriate at school.

    MAP, Measure of Academic Progress, assessment gives us a baseline of current performance levels in Math and English. We will give the assessment three times during the school year and measure student growth. Students need to bring fully charged tablets every day. The MAP assessment will be administered on Tuesday and Thursday. There will be an upcoming family night in September to go over results and how to support your student's growth at home.

    6th grade families, there is a desert potluck on Thursday, August 29th from 6:30-7:30pm in the cafeteria. Please bring a dessert to share. The 6th grade team looks forward to seeing our 6th grade parents there.

    Have a great day and Stay Titan Strong.
