Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year, I am excited and honored to be the Principal at Horizon Middle School where we will strive to always go beyond…excellence. Our mission is for all our students to become productive citizens who are life-long learners that are college and career ready for the 21st century.
We begin the school year with the recent reconfiguration of our campus from a 6th-7th grade to now having 6th-8th grade. Our hawk pride and school spirit continues to grow and are ready to begin this new chapter at Hawkland. We encourage you to come out and support your children for Academic, Athletic and Fine Arts events held throughout the school year at HMS.
Also I am very excited about the Clint ISD one to one chrome book initiative which provides all our students with a laptop. The computer will be a resource to help support instruction in the classroom and allow students the flexibility to learn new information any time of the day. Furthermore, our Positive Behavior Improvement Support team (PBIS) continues to flourish in our second year of implementation. The team assists in helping our students understand how to improve or change behavior as well as promoting positive behavior with incentives throughout the school year.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children throughout the school year. Our HMS team is committed to helping all our students succeed each and every day. Working together and maintaining a true partnership with our parents as well as the community will ensure that our students accomplish great success. I would like to encourage you to become a volunteer at our campus and become part of the HMS team. Finally, we will continue to promote our Hawk Core Values of respect, responsibility and safety. Thank you in advance for your support and for ensuring that your child attends school every day. If you have any questions or need to reach me please call me at 926-4700.
Mrs. Candelaria, Principal
Horizon Middle School
