HJM News Week of Oct 4 -8

Announcements for the Week of October 4 -8:

Safety Announcement

ALL students are reminded that any act of physical aggression displayed towards another student and/or staff member will be addressed as outlined in the Craven County Schools student handbook. This includes horseplay, fights, and TikTok challenges. Consequences will consist of school level (i.e suspension) and legal action if deemed necessary. Students should THINK before they ACT!


Picture Day is October 12. Ordering information will be sent home soon! A makeup picture day has not been scheduled and it's not a guarantee that they will be able to provide us with one. Please be sure to be in school on picture day to ensure that your picture is taken.

The 1st 9 weeks grading period ends October 19. Teacher conferences should be scheduled if you have concerns regarding your child’s academic or behavioral progress. Conferences are available via phone, Zoom, or face to face. Contact your child’s teachers to schedule a conference if you have concerns.

Federal Cards were sent home to our Military Impacted students on Monday, September 27. All cards need to be returned by October 8. Please return your child’s card ASAP!

Students should report to school with a FULLY charged iPad each day. iPads are used daily in classes. If your child does not have their device, we will provide a temporary means for them to access their school work for the day. LEARNING SHALL TAKE PLACE!

Students are not allowed to interact with their cell phones during the school day. Once the 8:30 tardy bell rings, cell phones should be put away and not interacted with until 3:30. This includes smart watches that can be used to text and make phone calls.

Thank you for supporting us as we strive to achieve Excellence through Experiences at THE H.J. MacDonald Middle School!
