first week flew by with a flurry of activities to get to know the
school, the schedule and each other! Scavenger hunt with 8th grade
buddies, Signo, Personality Bingo, paper bag activity and Me by the Numbers were activities that really helped with the transition to HMS and our new classrooms.
two began with computer roll out! The computers are smaller and faster
this year. So awesome! Fifth graders have a computer in each of their
classrooms which makes for smoother and quicker transitions.
