No Schedules will be given out until the first day of class. Students that were unable to attend the early pick up will receive their schedule the first day of class during homeroom. Homeroom listings will be available at orientation and will be posted throughout the school on the first day. The Pacesetters will be here and assist students who need help finding homeroom or a class. We will not give out any schedules at orientation. 

What to expect the first day at HJHS:

If you are dropped off in carline before 7:40, you will be directed to the Pettey Center to remain until 7:40. Bus riders report to the cafeteria and remain there until the 7:40 bell.
All students report directly to Homeroom at 7:40. There will be Pacesetters here to help guide you to your homeroom. You will be assigned your locker in homeroom. Locker time is from 7:55-8:00 every morning and lockers are by the homeroom teacher’s classroom.

We will have an extended homeroom the first (and maybe second) day to make sure all housekeeping items and paperwork is taken care of. You will see all your teachers the first day. You will NOT dress out for PE the first day.

At class change you will have teachers, custodians, CNP workers and Pacesetters around the building to help you find your next location. It is OK if you are late the first day or two.

Backpacks are not allowed in class. We just do not have the space for movement in the classroom and backpacks. The first 2 – 3 days will be getting organized and ready for a great year. Teachers will help students make sure they have planned out what they need for the next class and a good time to go by their locker. The 7th grade core classes are located by the 7th grade core classes. Locker access is pretty easy, but not if time is spent socializing rather than lockering :)

Lunch is with your 5th period class. Your teacher will show you where to sit.

Break is in your 2nd period class for 8 minutes.

Students will be allowed to wander the building on early schedule pick up. Teachers will be here during Orientation on the 7th and that is another chance to find your way around. Schedules will not be give out on this day. Any student that did not attend the early pick up will receive their schedule in homeroom the first day of class.

Finally if your child has any questions they are driving you crazy with, post them here and I will respond as soon as I can. I know they are anxious, but I promise you they will be well loved and have a great year!

We are making a change to our fees. We have opened an online store that will have our PE uniforms. The link is below. You may order the standard one or chose from one of the selections. This will NOT be a part of the MySchoolFees that you will pay for starting school. We are trying this option to allow some choice in the PE uniforms. The link to the store is Girls must order the standard red shirt/black shorts.


MySchoolFees will be open by the end of the week for online payment. Remember that, in order to pick up a schedule during early schedule pickup time (Tuesday July 26), fees must either be paid online, by check or EXACT cash. If you pay online remember to print your receipt. We will not have any way to look that up for you. General fees will be $28.00. Elective fees will be collected once school starts and you see what elective your child has. That will also be available online for your convenience. Remember the gym suit/PE uniform is separate and will be ordered through the online store. Any 8th grade student that has one from last year will not be required to order a new one.


I am in and out this week so please email me questions at


Important Dates: Early Schedule Pickup will be July 26th 8:30-11 and 12:30-3. Fees must be paid to pickup schedule and this is the ONLY day we release schedules prior to school starting. More information on fees will come later. Orientation will be August 7 from 2-4. Opening session in the Pettey Center and then teachers will be available to meet and greet. The following link has a few more details: 

Parents: As many of you already know, the next few years bring on so many challenges for our kids. We are offering an opportunity to participate in a book study that provides some answers and insights to the tween/teen years. The book we will be using is Middle School: The Inside Story by Cynthia Tobias. We will have our first discussion meeting on September 14 at 1:30 (that is the first early release day). We thought that this could also be a time to answer any questions that may have come up during the first few weeks of school. If you would like to participate, just purchase the book and show up on the 14th. It would be GREAT to have a couple of parent volunteers to help lead the discussion. If you would be interested contact me at Happy Reading! 

Summer Reading Assignments can be found under Latest News as well as on teacher webpages. All should be finalized by June 1st.


8th grade supply list can be found under latest news. We also have a link to order from if you prefer:
