Welcome to Hunter's Creek Middle School!

During this month of giving, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for all you do to ensure the success of our Eagles.

As you look through these Community Brief editions, you are able to see the dedication, care and commitment of our teachers, staff, parents and community members to support our Eagles on their journey through their middle school years at HCMS. It truly takes a village and I am deeply grateful to everyone!

The second quarter progress reports became available on Skyward and as hard copies on Thursday, 11/18. Students and parents are able to view the second quarter progress on Skyward. (Two minute OCPS YouTube video for parents to help them access both progress reports and student report cards on Skyward.)

Please help us get your student ready as a season of testing is coming up after the Thanksgiving break. Students will be taking the following assessments prior to Winter break:

  1. Algebra I/ Geometry PMA2 on December 7th & 8th
  2. Seventh grade Civics PMA2 on December 9th & 10th 
  3. Science PMA2 for all three grade levels on December 9th & 10th
  4. Middle of the Year (MOY) i-Ready assessment in Reading from November 29th through December 2nd
  5. Middle of the Year (MOY) i-Ready assessment in Math from December 6th through December 9th
  6. Common Final Exam (CFE) in PE, Project Lead the Way and Learning Strategies on December 14th (Modified bell schedule) 

As these assessments are extremely important to measure the progress of the students in order to drive classroom instruction, we are working hard to provide an environment that is conducive to testing. We appreciate your support to help our students do their very best.

I would like to extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

In Eagle Pride,

Joumana Moukaddam
Proud Principal

I am excited to share this great news about free on-demand tutoring called OLET (Orange Live Electronic Tutor).OLET is only available to students within the Innovation Office in grades 6, 7, and 8.  Most importantly, your student has access to (OLET) a free certified virtual math teacher tutor Mon - Thurs from 5:00-9:00 pm. Students will log into Canvas and locate the OLET 21-22 Canvas course. Students will click on Schedule Here and then follow the directions on the left side titled, How to book an appointment with a math tutor. It is very important that students use their OCPS email, which is their student number, to book their appointment since the virtual Microsoft Teams meeting link to join their appointment will be sent to their OCPS email.

OLET supports students during hours when teachers are typically unavailable and parents are working. This additional layer of support will help students stay on track and build important math skills. The OLET tutors will provide personal and flexible support to enhance the educational experience for our OCPS families to help keep students feeling supported and connected. Book your appointment now, tutor schedules are filling up quickly.
