Attention fifth grade families:
This has been a very challenging way to end your elementary years and we do wish we had the power to change that. We hope you can find small ways to celebrate and help your child transition to the middle school in the fall. HMS is a big place, but it amazingly doesn’t feel as big once your child gets down the routine and learns their end of the building. It is a special place for a special time in your child’s life; and we are here to support you.
HMS usually hosts a 6th Grade Orientation for parents in person and the PTO is able to share with you what we do! However, this year is very different! So, we wanted to reach out before summer and welcome you to HMS!
The middle school is very different than the elementary schools, but the PTO is still a critical piece in making HMS a great place for our children! We do no fundraising outside of the annual $20 membership dues, so your membership in the PTO is critical to us making HMS an even better place to be! We cannot communicate with you unless you are a member!
Visit HMS AtoZ Connect. Click Signup Now at the bottom of the page, enter school 19083 as the school ZIP Code, and select Haverford Middle School from drop-down menu. You will be prompted to fill out contact information. Be sure to select “Incoming 6th Grader” for your membership. Follow the onscreen instructions or access detailed directions. Once you are approved, you can pay your dues online through PayPal or credit card.
We hope to see you this fall and gain you as members now! Once you have paid, you will have access to our directory of families and begin to receive emails in August about school happenings!
Enjoy the end of fifth grade and know that HMS is a positive, vibrant, inclusive community and we can’t wait to welcome you this fall!
