 Dear HMS Families, 

 Signs of spring are all around us from the warmer temperatures to the celebration of Women’s History Month! 

 Our Civil Rights Team helped our school community celebrate women in history by hosting two days of "Let's Greet the Day with the Voices of Women." Team members welcomed students upon arrival at school on Thursday and Friday this week with music by artists identifying as female, as well as posters about some notable women. Here is to celebrating the creative spirit and achievements of women everywhere. 

We are headed into spring,.
