Welcome Military Families!
We welcome our military families to Hugo Owens Middle School. Our school has been recognized by The Educational Opportunity of Military Children as a 2019 Purple Star designee for our outstanding commitment to serving the needs of military students and families. Here at HOM, we are dedicated to making every student feel welcomed and valued. We recognize that military families and students face unique challenges and it is our goal to make the transition process as smooth as possible. We offer many activities for our military-connected students to help them get involved, share experiences and meet new people. We thank you for your service and welcome you HOM!
