Principal - Eugene Bellamy, Jr.

Greetings, Cane Family of HRMS!

It is with great excitement that I anticipate the scholars of Hardeeville-Ridgeland Middle School. I am the proud husband of Raven J. Bellamy and father of Madison A. Bellamy, Micah A. Bellamy and Malachi A. Bellamy. I am enthused about the opportunity to continue serving the faculty, staff, students, parents and community stakeholders as Principal this school year.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Hardeeville-Ridgeland Middle School, we are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. At HRMS, we are a Title I school, and we cannot be successful without our village being actively engaged in what we do. Our children need support in school, from home and from the community. It is imperative that we work to build strong partnerships with you that will make a great difference in your child's education. Together, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

Below are ways that you can guide and support your child's learning. Please make sure that he/she:
- Login to Microsoft Teams on time, daily, ready for the day’s learning experience
- Completes daily assignments - classwork and homework - given by teachers
- Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
- Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
- Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
- Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school to be college and career ready

This year, even though we are beginning virtually, we are seeking volunteers, as we prepare for moving into our hybrid model at some point this year. Our students will greatly benefit from seeing you involved and contributing to the school's programs and operations. There are several areas that you can assist us. Additionally, we encourage you to join our School Improvement Council (SIC) and/or Parent-Teacher-Student Organization (PTSO)...encouraging attendance and participation in our school-wide events.

Three tenets of our school that will become paramount are Accountability, Professionalism, and Respect. We will work hard to Encourage students to give and be their absolute best, Empower students with positive affirmations and support, and Elevating students toward their greatest potential.

It is with great anticipation that we await the opportunities to serve you this year. Our faculty, staff and administrative team thank you for your support and look forward to working with you as we are, "Moving Forward, Growing Together: Structured for Excellence!"

As Principal, it is my goal to be an advocate for students, support teachers and establish and make plain the vision for our school and uphold my responsibility of promoting academic success for each student, providing a climate and culture conducive for success for all stakeholders, being an instructional leader and providing support services. There are many new initiatives that we will embark upon at HRMS, and we are asking for your patience and perseverance as we seek to make our school a premiere middle school in SC.

I am excited about this school year and trust that all things are going to work together for our good!
