Congratulations to our Donorschoose Teachers

Many of our teachers have worked hard to create a Donorschoose Grant. Today, so far, HMS has had at least SEVEN grants funded. Teachers are receiving Chromebooks, graphic novels, interactive notebook materials, a microscope, Google Cardboard materials, calculators, Breakout Edu materials, snacks and fitness chairs.  This is so exciting.

More teachers have projects on the site.  All these materials help to improve their classrooms. Please help if you can and spread the word!

Rosetta Stone for ESOL Parents

There is a new program available to parents who would like to learn English and become more involved in their child’s academic achievement. The program is free to parents and is on a first come first serve basis. Rosetta Stone® Community Solution for K-12 is a program available to the parents of our English Language Learners. This program will provide the parents of our English Language Learners with an opportunity to learn and develop their English Language skills. It will also enable parents to increase their engagement in their child’s school and contribute to improving their child’s educational achievement. The online lessons from Rosetta Stone® Community Solution for K-12 allow parents to use this program at home, work, on their phone, or anywhere they have access to the internet.

 

If you would like to have access to this program, please contact your child’s ESOL teacher. The ESOL teacher will be able to provide you with a code to access the program and share general log-in instructions.
