HMS Students Make A Difference

HMS students have made a difference! Last March during World Language Week, HMS students raised $1100.00 for The St. Bakhita Nursery and Primary School located in the Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement in Bweyale, Uganda. The adults at the school built 35 sturdy multi-student desks with benches with the HMS funds.

Many HMS students received letters from their new pen pals which included descriptions and pictures of their lives in Bweyale. Our students are writing again with the goal that this pen pal exchange will continue next year.
