Parents, At HMS our students have daily PE class. Students are required to dress out for class in the approved PE uniform. This uniform is a gray t-shirt and longer length black shorts. The shirt must include the student's LAST NAME printed across the back top of the shirt. We have an online store set up to purchase these pieces. This is a fundraiser for the HMS PE Depratment. You do not have to purchase these, or any other professionally done uniforms. You are welcome to use your own gray shirt and shorts. You may have the name put on the back or use a black, permanent marker and write it yourself. If you choose to purchase these through this link, they will be delivered to the students at school during the first week. They will not be expected to dress out that week. Thank you! https://aa-sportswear.com/hms_optional_pe_uniforms_2021-2/shop/home

3rd trimester and 4th quarter 6th-8th grade art students created a beautiful permanent installation piece made out of origami cranes. Each crane was made from book paper that was saved from the recycling bin. The installation is located in the “young adult” room at the Latzer Memorial Public Library. Mrs. Sellers hopes all of her students goes to visit to take a peek at their beautiful work. Special thanks to Jossilyn Gaffner, Sophie Frey, Jessica Chen, and all of her wonderful art students who helped to create this magical piece.
