New Student and Parent/Guardian Meet and Greet

HMS welcomed students and parents/guardians who are new to Yarmouth at a Meet and Greet on Monday, 8/27.

Laura Mike and HMS student volunteers grades 5-8 welcomed our new students and provided them with a fun, informative agenda. Our new students played games with the HMS student volunteers, went on student-led tours of the building, and learned about HMS as they enjoyed their lunch together. This experience will support our new students' transitions to HMS, and ensure that they feel more comfortable at the start of the school year.

The HMS PTO held a New Parent/Guardian Meet and Greet at the same time the new students were settling in; we had a great turnout for this event! PTO members along with other parent volunteers met with new parents/guardians to provide them with information about life at HMS, and answer questions. The new parents/guardians also went on a tour of the building, and received information about contact people, and resources they can access during the school year. 

Thanks to everyone who helped to welcome our new students, and their families!
