HJM News Week of Oct 14-18

Here are the announcements for the Week of Oct 14-18:

There's no school for students on Monday, October 14 in observance of Columbus Day. Students enjoy your 3 day weekend!

On Friday an important letter was sent home with every student regarding H.J. MacDonald's recent School Report Card Grade. Please ask your child for this letter. A copy of this letter is also attached to the weekly email. If you have questions, feel free to email me at

Tuesday, October 15 is H.J. MacDonald night at Chipotle!! Please consider having dinner OUT as a way to support HJM's Pawsitive PTO. The PTO will receive 33% of all purchases made between 4-8pm. You will have to show a picture of the flyer. The next Pawsitive PTO meeting is Monday, Oct. 21 at 5:30 in the HJM Media Center.

As we remain committed to our purpose of student learning this year, we need the help and support of our parents. Please speak to your child regarding following the HJM expectations. Students are discouraged from congregating in the halls during class changes. They should move quickly and safely to their next class. Additionally, H.J. has a hands off policy. Students are not permitted to "playfully" slap, kick, hit, punch, or poke any other student. Situations can quickly escalate into more serious incidents. Student safety is a priority next to learning. Consequences will still be assigned even if students insist they were "just playing".

Now for sports:

Wednesday, Oct 16 - HJM vs Pamlico Middle School (HOME at GCF)

Girls Soccer
Tuesday, Oct 15 - HJM vs Tucker Creek Middle (HOME at HJM) - 4:00 pm

Thanks for your support!!
