It's a brand new school year at HNMS, and like every year before, we are excited to announce some of the new changes that have taken place. The Harrisburg School District, and especially HNMS, is growing by leaps and bounds every year. Last year HNMS enrolled 580 learners by the end of the 2016-2017 school year. As of the first day of school this year, we are now at 659 students! That's a growth of 79 new students from last year.
To accommodate all of students, there are also some new teachers joining the NHMS family. In 7th grade, Mrs. Martin joined the math department, Ms. Johnson joined the ELA team, and Mrs. Kuntz joined the SPED department. 6th and 8th grade also added new teachers as well as the Wellness/PE and Encore teams. Other new faces include a new band teacher and the promotion of one of HNMS's finest to Assistant Principal.
Each year brings new changes to the schedule as well. This year we added a 4th lunch to the schedule to ensure that all of learners at HNMS have the opportunity to eat a healthy, delicious meal without hurrying through a long line, or running out of options. Advisory has moved to the middle of he day, opposite lunch, to help make this change the best possible option for our growing family.
These are just a few of the changes happening at Harrisburg North Middle School this year! If you are interested in learning more about what has changed from last year, or if you have any questions, feel free to contact the HNMS office staff or your student's advisory teacher.
