Dear Parents and Guardians-
It feels like the sun and warmth are taking a brief break today but we know that spring is right around the corner!
We’re pleased to have our new website up and running, and we are working to update HMS News, which highlights different learning experiences, celebrations, and noteworthy items that happen at our school. Please take some time to browse through the new site and check out the news. Let us know if you’re looking for a specific item that you haven’t seen yet. We’ll get it posted ASAP!
We want to congratulate Arianah Burgess and Celina Belleville, February's recipients of the HMS/Rotary Student Recognition award! The Unified Arts Team chose Celina for this recognition and the 8th Grade team chose Arianah. This recognition is based on growth mindset and the effort/grit/perseverance demonstrated by HMS students. Arianah and Celina were honored at the morning Rotary meeting on February 26 at the Town Hall. HMS News POST COMING SOON!
As we move through the spring we’ll continue to provide information about how we can support our students' understanding and management of social media, while keeping themselves safe. We know the importance of parents sitting with their children to regularly review texts, e-mails and posts. Casco Bay CAN provides further, useful tips about keeping teens safe while using social media in this this brief video.
