Writing code is going to be huge as our kids grow up. Getting a head start now will help. If your child would like to continue playing the games that teach code, go to https://code.org/learn.

The Student Assistance Program is designed to identify and provide assistance to students with problems in the areas of behavior, attendance, health, and/or academics which may be adversely affecting their school performance. This team of teachers, trained in the SAP process, follow the SAP steps to direct adolescents to appropriate services in the school or community. Students may be referred to the program by teachers, parents, and other students. This is an assistance program, not a disciplinary program.
Give 30 is a mentoring program through the Madison County ROE that is designed to provide at risk youth with positive support in their lives.
We would like to invite all students, parents, and staff to stop by and see us. Mrs. Rottmann is located in room 102, Ms. Felchner in room 101 and Mrs. Ramsey in 206, all near the main office. We can be reached by phone at 651-8800, or at our email addresses.
Some services we may provide include talking with students, consulting with teachers and parents, counseling in individual and group settings, leading skills acquisition and divorce support groups, and assisting with academic, personal, health, and career development. In addition, if you are concerned about academics, we can assist you by considering options such as after school tutoring, consultation with the team of teachers, or possible referrals for further academic testing. Mrs. Ramsey also has information and resources on various health issues.
After-school tutoring is offered to all students at Highland Middle School. Tutoring is held every Monday and Wednesday for grades 7 and 8 from 2:45 - 3:45 pm. and Tuesday and Thursday for grade 6 from 2:45 to 3:45 pm. There is a faculty member present to assist students for each grade.
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Highland Middle School provides a tutoring program for all students who would like additional help with study skills, organization, and academics. This after-school time will provide a number of students with the extra support needed to help them succeed at HMS and more importantly, in life. Often times students are recommended as possibly benefiting from such additional help but it is voluntary.
A supervising/certified HMS teacher will provide assistance with homework and help with organization and study skills in a small group setting.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 651-8800. We look forward to helping your child have a successful academic experience at HMS. Please keep in mind that this is a free service we provide utilizing student volunteers as tutors. If your child is signed up for tutoring and is not able to attend a session, please send a note or call the office to let the tutoring staff know your child will not be present. Parent contact will be made if a student who is registered for tutoring is not in attendance.
