Greetings Students and Parents,
Welcome to Horton Middle School, home of the Wildcats! We look forward to a great year ahead. We are committed to student achievement and meeting the needs of all students. As a Wildcat, there are numerous opportunities to excel both academically and behaviorally. We strive for academic excellence and produce leaders for the future. We expect that all students take advantage of academic clubs, extra-curricular activities, the arts, service projects and more. It is our vision to provide the platform for all students to be successful and prepared for life after middle school. We welcome the opportunity for community partnerships, stakeholder and parental involvement contributing to student success. Our dedicated staff are here for you! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you.
HMS received a grant from the Laura Bush Foundation of America’s Libraries! Horton Middle School was 1 of 160 schools chosen nationwide. This grant will allow us to buy new materials and help us pursue our goal of encouraging students to develop a love of reading and learning. Congratulations Ms. Lemmons!
On Friday, March 12 the 8th Grade Symphonic Band and three awesome 7th grade percussionists traveled to Carowinds and performed a concert for a panel of three judges. The judges evaluated the performance and gave the band a rating of "Superior," the highest rating a performing ensemble can receive. The students were model citizens throughout the entire day, and did an amazing job of representing the band program, Horton Middle, and Chatham County in the best possible manner. Way to go, Wildcats!
