Parent Orientation

HMS Parent Orientation
Posted on 05/10/2019

Welcome Parents/Guardians of the Incoming 7th Grade Class for 2019-20!

As this school year draws to a close, we extend a glad welcome to you and your child on behalf of the Hillsborough Middle School for 2019-20. Along with the excitement of moving up to HMS, we are sure there are many questions that you and your child have. To help with the transition, we have planned an orientation program for parents and a separate program for students.   

The first event is a general Orientation Program for Parents and will take place on the evening of Tuesday, May 28th at HMS.  


Doors will open at 6:30 pm for some preliminary activities:

  • Library/Media Center - For parents of special needs students with individual education plans (IEP’s), member of the HMS Child Study Team will introduce themselves and offer a short Q&A presentation.
  • Cafeteria - Home & School Association will be on hand to share information about HSA activities and ways you can remain involved within the school and support HMS programs.  The HMS Choir will provide welcoming entertainment for early arrivers.

The MAIN EVENT will begin promptly at 7:00 pm in the HMS cafeteria:

Parents of Incoming 7th Graders

Tuesday, May 28th at 7:00-8:00 pm

HMS Cafeteria

For the evening parent orientation, we will be joined by members of our HMS Home & School Association, HMS vice-principals, counselors, and other faculty & staff members.  Early arrivers get the best parking and the chance to mingle with HMS staff and HSA representatives. We are looking forward to meeting you.

Current sixth grade students will visit HMS during the first week of June.  They will shuttle over from ARIS by team along with their teachers to meet with me, several key faculty members, and representatives from the HMS Student Council.  The program will include time to address their questions and take a tour of the building as well.
