    Welcome New 6th Grade Families 20-21 School Year

    Welcome to all of our New Incoming 6th Grade Families!

    Next week, we will send via email and US postmail the following information:







    • Welcome letter from Mr. Manza, Principal
    • Elective choice form, with instructions. 
    • Email addresses for Music teachers so that you can request an “audition” if appropriate.
    • Helpful sites to assist you in gathering additional information.

    In August around the 20th, you will receive:

    • Packet with additional information which will include start of school process - Packets are sent to the address used to “assign” your child to HIMS. 
    • “Draft” schedule for your review, with instructions.
    • Letter from Math department explaining placement process along with contact information for questions or concerns.

    Please note, at this time HIMS is unable to access your child’s “demographic” page in PowerSchool. That capability opens up to us in late August.  Any changes to email or the person you would like to receive this information must be implemented at the Elementary level.  Please forward email to others in your household that needs to access this communication.  In the past we have found the biggest issue is that at the elementary school level the “parent/guardian” that normally takes care of School issues is not identified on the Student Demographic page, this can be easily remedied by requesting Elementary school to chose the “initial contact” box on the Parent/Guardian information page via “demographics”.  See below. By completing this step the Parent/Guardian that has this designation will receive all 20-21 school year information from HIMS.

    Each time a new communication is sent, a new “email address” report is run to catch any changes/updates that have been made.

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to myself, Elizabeth Peila, Registrar or Ms. Goldsmith, 6th Grade Counselor, with any questions, we will forward to the appropriate person. Due to volume of emails, please be patient we will get back with you ASAP.

    Thank you and Go Hawks!!
