PTSA Scholarships

Attention Hawks;

The Hickory Middle School PTSA is pleased to offer a scholarship in the amount of $500 to TWO graduating seniors who plan to further their education by attending a university, college, or business/technical program. The objective of the Hickory Middle School PTSA Scholarship Program is to offer scholarship funds to deserving students who may have not fulfilled the stringent academic or athletic criteria required for many other scholarship programs.  Click here for additional information and application.

The Hickory Middle School PTSA is proud to offer a $500 scholarship in memory of our beloved former principal, Dr.Woodley (Woody) Koonce. The scholarship will be offered to a Hickory High School graduating senior, who attended Hickory Middle School, and plans to pursue a career in education. Dr. Koonce dedicated his life to ensuring the success of young people throughout the city of Chesapeake, but most especially to those in the Hickory area. Dr. Koonce served as principal of Southeastern Elementary, Hickory Middle, and Hickory High School. The Hickory Middle School PTSA feels there is no better tribute than to encourage others to emulate Dr. Koonce’s passion and dedication to helping students succeed.

Tdap Booster Required For 7th Grade Students

All rising 7th grade students are required to have a booster dose of pertussis-containing vaccine prior to entering 7th grade.  You may get the Tdap vaccine from your child’s health care provider or at the Chesapeake Health Department. The Health Department carries the brand name, Boostrix.  Many health care providers use the brand name, Adacel, which may be given at age 11.  When your child receives the Tdap vaccine, please send documentation, signed by a licensed medical provider, to Nurse Brooke Thompson as soon as possible.  STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO 7th GRADE WITHOUT THIS IMMUNIZATION.  (THERE IS NO GRACE PERIOD).  If the vaccine is given after the last day of this school year, you will need to bring the documentation to the front office at Hickory Middle School.

Routine required immunizations are available at no cost to you for children 18 and under. Please bring the child’s shot record.
