Friday, May 10th HMS 8th grade students hosted the annual Young Athletes Festival in partnership with Special Olympics of Maine. We want to recognize and thank these students and their teachers for the energy and enthusiasm they shared with the visiting athletes! Our students made sure that every athlete received the attention and encouragement needed; they played and laughed together and cheered the athletes on as they mastered new skills. So many of our visitors commented on the kind and caring way our students interacted with the athletes. We are proud of our students’ efforts and work at this exciting community event.  Huge appreciation, as always, to Lisa Bird, from the Special Olympics. She is the driving force behind the festival, which teaches so many essential life lessons!

Please take a few minutes to enjoy this beautiful video created by Elin Bowman. She captured the essence of this day!
