Testing Doesn't Have to Be Stressful!

Tomorrow HMS students will begin ASPIRE testing.  With testing can come feelings of anxiety, stress and nervousness.  But remember tests are a part of every student's life and will continue throughout your educational career and even beyond.  So instead of dreading tests, learn to adapt and become the best test taker you can be.

Here are a few tips from pbskids.org to help make your testing day the best it can be!

School Libraries Matter!

This month is School Library Month and I can't think of a better way to kick it off than with a generous HMS PTO grant!  I was shocked and honored when the PTO surprised me with a huge check!  Yes, the actual check is large but the amount is pretty huge too!  I cannot express how grateful I am to have a PTO who understands and appreciates how life changing a school library can be.  Please be sure to tell PTO members and officers how excited you are about this grant.

The theme of this year's School Library Month is School Libraries Transform Learning
