Principal's Message 5/13/2022

HC Families,

As we enter the final two weeks of the school year, we know that it is a time to celebrate, have fun, and reflect on the amazing year we had. Some of our most recent highlights include our orchestra concert on Wednesday and our final volleyball match on Thursday. An additional exciting event for us was the creation of a mission statement for our school. We have collaboratively worked on this process for the past few months, and we are excited to begin next school year with the following mission: “We are an authentic, empowered community that believes in opportunity for all.” This statement will serve as a guiding and driving force for our future work as a school.

8th Grade Families: Our 8th Grade Awards Celebration will be held on Wednesday, May 25th starting at 1:05pm. Family members of 8th grade students are invited to attend. Please contact Shayna Price at with questions.

Our Multicultural Fair Returns! HCMS will be hosting a Multicultural Fair on Friday, September 30, 2022 (after school). We are looking for entertainment at this time. If you or someone you know would be interested in performing, please reach out to Kerri Benzel ( or Erin Taylor (

Finally, please see below for important reminders and updates. Also, please share your feedback on our community survey (links below). We want to hear feedback from every HC family!

Have a great weekend!

Community Feedback Survey for Families

We are interested in hearing your feedback on several aspects of the 2021-2022 school year. Please complete this survey and share your honest and confidential input on how we can continue to improve as a school. The survey is divided into multiple sections and should only take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Students who turn in a slip indicating that their parent has completed the survey will be entered into a drawing for a prize!

You still have time to purchase a yearbook! Hardcovers are $30 and softcovers are $15. Yearbooks can be purchased by bringing cash or a check made out to Horizon Community Middle School to Ms. Scoglio's room (263). There are still some yearbooks left!

A Message from the Deans’ Office

As we near the end of the school year, many exciting and fun events are planned. While these activities are celebrations, they are also privileges. It is an expectation that all HC students display positive behavior and maintain excellent attendance records, modeling our PACK Commitments at all times. Students who engage in behaviors that do not reflect PACK Commitments may lose privileges, including, but not limited to, participation in end of the year field days, other fun activities, and/or the 8th grade dance.
