New Middle School Bell Schedule for 2018-2019
All three Hilliard Middle schools will be operating under a new bell schedule for the 2018-2019 school year. School will now begin at 7:55 am and end at 2: 40 pm. Students will be assigned to either 4th, 6th or 8th period lunch. The rest of each student’s schedule will be based on the period they has lunch.
2018-2019 School Year 7th Grade Orientation- Jaguar Jump Start
MMS will be holding an orientation for incoming 7th graders, called Jaguar Jump Start, on August 15, 2018. Jaguar Jump Start will be a special program just for students entering the 7th grade and will take place from 1pm – 4pm. This orientation will be primarily led by a group of 8th grade Jaguar Ambassadors that will act as mentors and tour guides. Parents will drop students off at the new MMS building, 2900 Walker Road, and pick them up when it is over.
Jag Days Open House
All MMS 7th and 8th graders, and their parents, are invited to our Jag Days Open House on August 15, 2018, from 4-7 pm. At Jag Days Open House, students can pick up their class schedule, have their school picture taken, check out their locker, receive their school issued iPad, get information on school clubs and activities and more. In addition, MMS staff members will be in their classrooms to meet and greet both students and parents, as well as provide information about their classes for the year. Students and parents will be able to walk around school, check out their classrooms and meet their teachers. This will be a great opportunity for all students and parents to welcome in the 2018-2019 school year.
There will no school fees for Hilliard City Schools’ students this school year.
School Pictures/Student ID’s
Our school photographer, HR Imaging, will be mailing a pre-printed school picture flyer to each student’s home. Please look for it. Students and/or parents should bring their pre-printed flyer/envelope to Jag Days Open House, August 15 from 4-7 pm, and get their picture taken, even if you are not planning on purchasing pictures. It will serve as the camera card and save time in line. All students will be photographed for their ID.
Parents can also check shop/hrimaging.com for picture purchasing options.
All parents are invited and encouraged to be members of the MMS PTO. Check the PTO tab under Parent Information on the MMS Website for updated information on how to join the MMS PTO and help with the many supportive activities available throughout the school year.
