Principal's Message

Principal's Message

 
It is with great pride that I welcome you to Haralson County Middle School for the 2017-2018 school year! It was eight years ago that I was blessed with an opportunity to join HCMS. Although many people discouraged me, I took a leap of faith and I have never regretted a single second of that decision. It was truly an honor to serve as assistant principal and an even greater honor to now serve as principal. There is no other school family of which I would rather be a part of than HCMS!
 
During the past eight years, the faculty, staff, and students of HCMS have worked tirelessly to create a unified school culture and a unique identity. As a result of improved practices, continued student support, and highly engaging experiences for students, HCMS has transitioned from one of the most consistently underperforming schools in Georgia to a school that has received recognition at the state and national levels. HCMS has continued to improve student achievement, decrease discipline rates, and develop a school culture that is positive, supportive, and student-focused.
 
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all HCMS stakeholders once again for raising the bar. As a result of outstanding performance and innovative practices, HCMS earned an overall CCRPI score of 84.9, which is 13.4 points ABOVE the state average. For three years in a row, HCMS has earned a significantly higher score than the state average. In addition, HCMS 2016 CCRPI score was higher than every Carroll County and Polk County Middle School. HCMS outscored Bremen Middle School for a third year. There is no doubt that even greater results will come with the 2017 CCRPI score.
 
We certainly have a lot to be proud of at HCMS! As the principal, I could not be more proud of the perseverance and commitment of the students, staff, parents, and community. In the coming year, I challenge you all to continue embracing change, mastering innovative practices, and building upon our positive reputation as we strive to reach levels of excellence that were once considered impossible.
 
Sincerely,
Mrs. Jodi Cash
Principal, Haralson County Middle School
