As we get ready to welcome our students back tomorrow, HAMS would like to recognize the hard work of three students in particular prior to break. Congratulations to these Remote Learners of the Week. The HAMS staff can't wait to see all of our students again in person and virtually.
HAMS Parents, Teen Reach will close at 2:00 PM on Friday, December 18th.
HAMS is so very proud of this group of remote learners!
HAMS Families: Hello! Mrs. Walder, here! I am going to do student chats during homeroom class periods! This means I will come to class and pass out a handout on where to get support and help if needed. We will briefly cover several topics like: depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide, lgbtq, ptsd, etc. We will not go into detail about these things, it is simply to reach out and give information about who to talk to and get support from if any students would like more information. If you have any questions please feel free to call Mrs. Walder at 217-283-0377 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org To opt out of these mini chat sessions, please contact the HAMS office.
Hoopeston Area Middle School Families, there are a few things to know as we approach the end of the quarter and semester. First, we will not be administering semester exams. While teachers will be having tests during the final week of the quarter, their purpose will be to wrap up the current chapter or unit prior to break. Also, all work from this quarter will be due by the end of the day on Friday, December 18th for in person learners and no later than Monday, December 21st at 8:30 AM for remote learners. The only exception to this will be tests that need to be made up for students that were absent or quarantined on test days. If your child falls into this category, HAMS staff will be reaching out to you to schedule a time to get the test or tests made up. Make up days will be January 4th and 5th. If you know your child will be absent on December 17th and/or 18th, please make arrangements with your child’s teachers to get their tests taken before those dates. Lastly, school will resume for students on January 6th. This is a change to the original calendar. When we return from the holiday break, HAMS students will begin attending in person on Wednesdays. We will continue to dismiss at 12:20 all five days of the week. There will be no change to our schedule on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday. On Wednesdays students will meet with their teachers for periods 1-6. Their remote work on Wednesdays will be for periods 7 and 8 only. If you have any questions, please contact the HAMS office at 217-283-6664. Thank you!
I'm honored to share photos of three of our most recent Remote Learners of the Week. The HAMS staff is so proud of all of our students, but these three have been working so hard, we felt they deserved some special recognition. Congratulations to our Remote Learners of the Week!

Hoopeston Area Middle School Families, due to lack of numbers at our Wednesday homework help sessions, we will be adjusting our schedule. Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11th, we will only travel to the Rankin Lion's Club. HAMS staff will be there from 8:30-10:30 AM. If your child needs assistance from staff members on Wednesday, and they live outside of Rankin, please call the school to make arrangements. Also, our teachers are still available for help at the school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 1:30-3:30 and all day on Wednesday. Please call the office or email in advance, so we can make sure someone is available to provide your student with the attention and support they deserve.
BINGO! HAMS students participated in school-wide, socially-distanced BINGO on Monday to celebrate being HAMS Cornjerkers. This was our Quarter 1 PBIS Celebration.

HAMS is proud to announce our inaugural group of Remote Learning Students of the Week. We have so many students that are getting their work done and participating in their Google Meets, we felt we needed to recognize them in a special way. We're proud to honor these three students for all of their hard work as they work from home.
