Starting in January, the enrollment process for the 2017-2018 school year will begin. The HWMS counselors will be going into 6th and 7th grade Social Studies classrooms the first week of February to cover information about overall requirements, available electives, and core class information. Your child will be bringing home an enrollment sheet for you to look at and sign after the counselors have made their visits. It is extremely important for you to have a conversation with your child about their class selections. CHS Freshman counselor, Mr. Michael will visit with 8th graders on February 1st and 2nd during Social Studies regarding their enrollment for next year at Campus High School. Each student will receive a packet with an enrollment booklet detailing the Kan-sas Curriculum requirements. Please review this information thoroughly with your child in order to prepare them not only for the mandates set forward by the state for achieving a high school diploma, but to help them establish their plan of study for college entrance requirements. CHS will be hosting a Freshman parent informational meeting on Mon., Feb. 6th at 6:30pm in the auditorium regarding freshman enrollment, followed by an Enrollment Preview in the commons. CHS teachers will be contacting HWMS 8th graders to schedule an appointment the week of Feb. 13th—16th to complete their Freshman enrollment for the 2017-18 school year.

Six years ago the HWMS Counseling Office and the TEAM WEST (We Excel Starting Today) leadership group started the Gorilla Giving Tree. This idea was based off the Salvation Army Angel Tree, but with focus on our own HWMS families and members of our community who needed help during the holidays. Because of the amazing support from staff, students and community, we have been able to help hundreds of students and their families over the years. The past two years our team has wanted to do even more. Our USD261 Mission is “The Relentless Pursuit of Excellence” and one of our district’s goals is “To strengthen community pride through strategic partnerships.” Our team decided to reach out and help even more families within the Haysville community by collaborating with other organizations also providing assistance. The response was overwhelming! Between our students, staff and outside donations we raised $3,000 to purchase toys, bedding, coats, clothing, toiletries, etc. for not only our HWMS families, but also the Campus High School “Hope That Fits” program, Haysville Community Outreach and numerous residents of Peachtree Plaza. In partnering with these organizations we were able to help over 250 families! HWMS wants to sincerely thank everyone who made this happen! GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING IN HAYSVILLE!
