The Annual Apple Pie fundraiser was a huge success! Athletes, coaches, and parents all worked together to make over 2300 pies – the most ever sold! We are proud of our athletes and the community who work to make this such a successful fundraiser for our athletic program. Apple pies are still available. Contact Mike Rawert at 873-6228 if you are interested.

HMS is proud to be offering students a new Art exploratory this year. Mrs. Difede has been enjoying introducing students to as many different types of art media and concepts as possible in the one semester she has them. Students are painting and drawing, as well as using clay, in this Introduction to Art class. Currently they are displaying their self portraits outside the art room. Stop by and check them out!

Congratulations to Amy Taranko for winning MEMSPA Region 12 Principal of the Year Award!
The after-school migrant program, Bucaneros, had another successful fall session. Students had the opportunity to practice math in the math station. In the writing station, they published their own books. They utilized a computer program, Imagine Learning, to increase English language acquisition. They concluded their program by decorating cookies, coloring pumpkins, and watching a movie with a HUGE bag of popcorn! Thanks to Mrs. Mattson, Mr. Wheeler, Mrs. Pangburn, Mrs. Staples, Ms. Seidelman, and Mrs. Herrera for all of their hard work.

For the past few weeks the children have been working hard on creating our decorations for our bulletin board in the gym. Our theme for the month of November is a farmers market and it will include all kinds of veggies and fruits that the children painted in a variety of ways. I am proud of how hard they worked on their paintings! A big round of applause for our smallest pirates!
