About

The HMS Hurricane Watch Staff is comprised of middle school journalism students in yearbook staff, newspaper I and yearbook I classes. The newspaper publishes new stories and photographs that share the unique and rich story of Heritage Middle School online on a daily basis.

Heritage Middle School’s first news website, www.HMSHurricaneWatch.net, is a dynamic publication of middle school journalism students in yearbook staff, introductory journalism classes and a new journalism club. The news site publishes daily new stories and photographs that share with parents and the community the unique and rich story of Heritage Middle School.

Most staff members are new to journalism class and learning for the first time basic and advanced skills in journalism, communication and technology that will help them flourish in their classes now, and later in any career that they choose. Journalism students work under the guidance of their adviser and journalism teacher, Mr Damoine Williams.

While students all strive for perfection, even professional publications are not perfect and middle school students should not be held to unrealistic standards, or even those of professional publications. We appreciate your support. We’d love to hear from you! To make suggestions, ask questions or suggest story ideas or content, please contact Mr. Damoine Williams via email on the HMS website staff directory or on the contact form on this website, by calling the school at 210-648-4546 or sending a note.

Per school policy, students are named with only their first names and last name initial.
