Welcome to the
2017-2018 school year at Hedgepeth/Williams Middle School of the Arts (HWMS)! We
are pleased to announce that though our name has recently changed to be more
reflective of our arts focus, we remain committed to excellence in
instructional performance, students’ academic achievement, artistic expression,
regular attendance and social/emotional
development teamed with your parental/family engagement. We must all dedicate ourselves to helping
each student shine, not only for the school and the community, but also for the
world to see. With your support, we look
forward to another successful year.
As the staff and
administrative team prepare for the new school year, we do so with much
anticipation and excitement. Realizing that teaching your child is a privilege,
as well as a tremendous responsibility, we will do our best to ensure that your
child has a motivating and safe learning experience. We will build upon
successes as we address the current needs of each student and family.
We cannot achieve these goals without you
as partners in the learning process.
Recognizing that you are your child’s first and most crucial teacher, we
welcome your presence, ideas and support. The staff and administrators look
forward to meeting you and sharing suggestions about how, together, we can continue
to make Hedgepeth/ Williams Middle School of the Arts the “best middle school
in the county”. In order to do and be
that, we need to see your children EVERY
Once again, we
welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year with the enthusiasm of working with
you towards students’ academic and personal success.
