6th Grade Newsletter

Dear HMS Parents and Students,
We welcome each of you to your new school family. It has been such a joy meeting all of our new students and parents. After a few
days of worrying about locker combinations, finding classrooms, and deciphering where they were supposed to be for related arts classes, students
have made a rather smooth transition into middle school. We have conquered the 3 L’s- Locks, Lockers, and Lunch! That is a true success.
We have met with all 6th grade students and discussed our expectations, rules, policies, and procedures here at HMS. If you have not done so
already, please read the school handbook with your child. It is located in the front of the agenda.
Many, many students have already been recognized for doing good things here at HMS and have received a Positive Office Referral. We look forward to seeing many more students doing positive things here at HMS!

HMS Test Scores--Highest Gains in GCSD

So proud to share state data and rankings with our students, parents and community!

The SCREADY and PASS scores were released to the public this week. Hillcrest Middle had the highest gains in Greenville County middle schools. We increased our ELA score 7 percentage points, and our mathematics 8 percentage points. We moved up in the district middle school rankings to fifth and earned a four star rating. ONLY Riverside, League, Blue Ridge and Beck rank higher than HMS. We moved up 32 places in the state rankings from 94th to 62nd out of a total of 303 middle schools in South Carolina which now positions us in the top 20% of all middle schools in the state! We are heading in the right direction and are poised to move higher. Our goal is to be in the top three middle schools in our county and the top 10% of our state.
