Recently at HMS, our Mothers Matter collection concluded. This drive supports the efforts of the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation. They help provide Mother's Day gifts to support less fortunate mothers. HMS students donated over 1,000 bottles of shampoo and conditioner during our collection drive to be included in gift bags. They will be delivered to mothers in and around our area within the next few weeks.
Throughout the year, 7th grade Peer Leaders have gone to their assigned 6th grade homerooms to inform them of upcoming collections and projects. The presentations have included a presentation on information about HMS, a Drug Awareness presentation, where each group shared a video that they created and our next presentation will be on becoming a 7th grader. Having a connection to the 6th grade homerooms has helped them become more aware, involved and informed about HMS and the world around them.
