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

* All kindergarten students and extended-day pre-k students will participate in the Explore the World cluster.
