This week Terry Blashke, a representative from Camp Sunshine, joined our HMS Student Leadership Team, and Nini Emmons, their advisor, for a special presentation. The Leadership Team was proud to present Terry and Camp Sunshine with a check for eight hundred dollars, which our students raised during Spirit Week. Our thanks to the Student Leadership Team and Nini for spearheading this effort, and to the inspiring staff at Camp Sunshine and the important work they do.

Spirit Week brings our school together as a community with the focus on outreach and giving to others who need assistance. We engage in a friendly fundraising competition with the goal of presenting a united front, as a learning community, about the importance of community service and community engagement. Our Student Leadership team has designated Camp Sunshine as this year's recipient of our fundraising efforts.
