Enrichment Clusters


2014 03 13_0195_0.JPGHPIM1566_0.JPGEach spring, HMS offers students a chance to gain educational experiences outside of the classroom. All students in grade one through grade eight have an opportunity to choose a topic that interests them.   During a seven week period students explore that topic once a week for 70 minutes in a cluster of multi-aged students. Clusters are led by teachers, administrators, parents, grandparents, and community members. Some students travel off campus while others congregate in classrooms or work outdoors. Clusters provide an experience that is not only educational but fun and help meet an HMS goal of educating the whole child. 


2015 Schoolwide Enrichment Clusters will begin on February 19.   

Selection forms are due from students by Wednesday, January 28, 2015.
