From the Principal

Welcome to Helena Middle School 2016-2017

Helena Middle School Students and Parents,

Helena Middle School is a place for everyone! HMS provides students engaging learning experiences in a safe, responsible and respectful environment. Our universal expectations follow suit: BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE, BE RESPECTFUL, BE A LEARNER.

Students and parents, HMS is a community school. In this document and with invitations to come, you will find opportunities to contribute and participate in the positive educational experience found at HMS for students. Our students and parents are crucial in our learning environment. Students and parents at HMS are instrumental partners in shaping the best educational experiences for our students.

The Middle School years are very, very important for students. Students hone learning skills, study habits, behaviors, relationships and decision-making skills in preparation for the next level. The foundation for high school is built in these years. Middle School counts greatly.

Best wishes to you and your student(s) in the upcoming year. My door is open to you. “It’s about the kids!” I value and cherish student and parent input and involvement. Have a great year!

Sincerely,

Josh McKay, Principal
