Moving on to Middle School – A Parent’s Perspective

The transition from fifth to sixth grade – and elementary school to middle school – is a big one. And not just for our kids. What really happens inside the doors of HMS for 8 hours a day? And as a parent, how do we best support our incoming middle schoolers?

Please join us for our March general PTO meeting, a panel discussion with HMS parents who will answer the questions you really want to know but may be afraid to ask. Classes in the portables, social dynamics in the lunchroom, gym lockers – and uniforms! For the first time middle school parent, you won’t want to miss this. And for current middle school parents, we’d love to hear your perspectives as well. Join us for an honest discussion about life inside the hallowed halls of HMS!

DATE: Tuesday, March 6
PLACE: Madison School – 611 S. Madison, Hinsdale
RSVP: Email

If you have specific questions you want answered, please forward them to and we will pass them along to the panelists to help shape the discussion.
