We celebrated our teachers this past week in recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week. We whole-heartedly thank our generous business partners for their donations and HCMS PTSA, CHEER and NJHS for participating in recognizing our teachers and staff. HCMS teachers did not stop at anything this year either. To them, teaching is a labor of love with an oath and a solid plan to go above and beyond any imaginable measures to become the superheroes they are. If you did not have the chance to send your student’s HCMS teachers a note of thanks, it is never too late to send one teacher and staff emails.

"Being a teacher is the highest privilege. Having a teacher is the Best Blessing."

As we have completed the heaviest testing week for this academic year, my deepest thanks go out to our teachers, staff members, parents and students for doing your part and for making testing run very smoothly.

We still have one more day of EOC and FCAT testing on Thursday, 5/12. All 8th graders will be taking their Science FCAT exam and 7th graders will be taking their Civics EOC exam. Common Final Exams (CFE) are scheduled to take place from May 16th to the 19th. Please see additional information below.

HCMS end of year events are in place! We have planned accordingly so that we can protect our traditions in spite of this unusual year. Below are details on our Evening of Champions and 8th Grade Celebration. 

In Eagle Pride,

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.
