Principal's Message

  • Hello Harriet Tubman School Community,


    Thank you for another wonderful week.   Here are a few updates for your convenience. Our back to school BBQ and Open House will be held Tuesday, September 17th.   Food will be served from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. Open house will officially begin at 5:30. This is NOT a time for individual conferences. Parent Conferences will be held the week of November 25th so please mark your calendars.


    We are strongly encouraging students to use their lockers and not bring backpacks into the classroom. We are committed to teaching students organizational skills and the importance of having necessary supplies on hand during academic instruction. Please make sure that your child has a 3 ring binder, dividers, spiral notebooks for core subjects and writing instruments daily. 


    The weather is changing and staff and students have been experiencing cold symptoms.  So please make sure your child gets proper rest, nutritional meals, and lots of fluids to stay healthy.


    Enjoy your weekend! 


    Mrs. Natasha Jackson 

    Principal- Harriet Tubman Middle School
