Middle School Libraries
Our libraries facilitate student learning throughout their middle school experience. Through academic support for core and elective subjects, technology support for individuals and research groups, reading programs, literature exploration, and a variety of academic skills development, middle school students are provided with the opportunities to be successful.
The library houses an extensive collection of titles to meet the needs and interests of middle school patrons. The online catalog provides students with the means to access material required for research, literary exploration, hobbies, and high interest topics. The library catalog homepage is a link to a variety of online sources: databases used for research, Moodle, PowerSchool, citation sources, and Interactives.
The library and staff are available for students and teachers to meet the academic, technological, social, and literary demands of middle school and prepare students for thehigh school and beyond.
The middle schools are dedicated to implementing technological tools and innovations in the classroom and the operations of the school. Staff may enter student attendance data, calculate and input grades directly to student report cards, access student schedules and other information, and send and receive e-mail. Both schools maintain web sites, and many teachers post classroom activities and upcoming events on a regular basis.
Each student is assigned a Chromebook for use in the classroom as well as to do homework. Our school has one computer lab, two portable computer stations, and many workstations in the library. Macintosh computers reside in the lab and classrooms, along with multiple laser printers, ink jet printers, optical scanners, and digital cameras. There is a laserdisc player and a video microscope in science classrooms. Every student has access to a TI-83+ graphing calculator for use in math classes.

The HE uniform is comprised of a light grey t-shirt, dark athletic shorts, and appropriate shoes for gym - no black soles. Our parent group, PAC, sells these shirts - be sure to indicate your child's first initial and last name.
However, you are welcome to provide your own plain light grey t-shirt (write first initial and last name in 4-5in-high block letters across shoulders in permanent ink).
Scholarships are available. Please contact the PAC treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teachers will let students know when they will be expected to dress out. They will not need their uniform the first day of school! If a student does not yet have a uniform and has been asked to dress out, they should wear appropriate gym clothing until their t-shirt arrives.
