Welcome Back HMS Students and Guardians

Congratulations J-Barbs, you are about to LEVEL UP and GET YOUR GAME ON!

It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to a new school year at Huntley Middle School. This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities. As we embark on this journey with you, we pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms. Academic achievement combined with special events, a plethora of extracurricular clubs/activities, performing arts groups, and athletic teams are certain to encourage our J-Barbs to be plugged in, powered up, and getting high scores.

Although, I am showing my biases, I believe that Huntley Middle School is the Greatest Middle School in the Universe. It is such a special place to learn and grown. Our motto of “HMS is a place where people want to be and grow because they are here” will continue to guide our dedicated staff as we strive to make connects with student to help them feel valued, accepted and safe. I am proud to work with such an illustrious group of educators that have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe return to full in-person learning. In addition to preparing to teach our young people, we have completed countless hours of professional development that will enable us to facilitate targeted social emotional learning which is one of our priorities in these times. We will remind our J-Barbs that when life gets hard it means you just leveled up.

We embrace the responsibility of welcoming our students “My Babies” to our building and do not underestimate the importance of this adult support in every child’s educational journey. We encourage parents/guardians to partner with us by taking advantage of the variety of ways to get involved. Joining the Parent Teacher Association, volunteering, and chaperoning field trips are just a few of the ways that families take part in HMS’ endeavors.

Don’t be AFK (Away From Keyboard) J-Barbs, GAME ON!!!

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates on upcoming events and basic information. Feel free to reach out to our main office staff and the administration team with questions or concerns.

Partners in Education,

“Proud Principal Parker”

Ms. Amonaquenette Parker
