During their library lesson this week, 6th graders created acrostic poems after hearing about Martin Luther King Jr., Bayard Rustin, and the children's crusade.
What more fun is there to be had than reading in the HMS Library on a snowy day?

Due to a driver shortage, Yarmouth Bus #8 will be approximately 15 minutes behind schedule during the morning pick-up today (Monday, 12/5). Thank you for your patience.
There will be no school in the Yarmouth School Department today (Friday, November 18), due to a report of an on-line threat against our schools being made known to the Yarmouth Police Department. This will be a traditional no-school day. More information to come later.
Many thanks to our maintenance team for installing a bottle filler in the 6th grade wing! Our 6th graders and World Language students can now refill their water bottles without having to go to another part of the building. Hooray!
We had such a great time learning from @varshabajaj on Friday as our culminating event in our study of her book Count Me In. We learned so much! Thank you to our PTO for supporting her visit!
Our students worked yesterday on class collages to celebrate our learning from our One Book, One School reading of Count Me In by @varshabajaj. Today, we held our final mixed-grade, small group discussions on the book. We are looking forward to Varsha's visit tomorrow!
