Our 8B Champion this week sets the bar high for the rest of the
year.  He is ROCK solid and very driven.  He is outstanding both inside

7A: Ethan Tippin

Our 7A student of the week is tippin’ the scale in his favor
He is a student that we really savor
He makes us smile
Lets keep him awhile
As far as we’re concerned he’s a real life savor
Ethan Tippin is our 7A Llama of the week

The 7B white wolves have begun a new golden era,
This student¹s demeanor has been as cool as aloe vera,
She¹s making all the right choices
And is one of our leadership voices
What a fantastic start to the year for our student of the week Cierra
Cierra Golden Cannady, you are our pack leader of the week.


6A: Delio Figueredo Rivera

Go figure!  Its the second week of school and Delio Figueredo has got it
figured out!  His smile lights up our hallways and he's a friendly face to
all.  He's living the "This is it" key, and we think he's awesome.


6B: Delia Miles

At the beginning of the year, we are always overwhelmed with all the new faces in our hallways, and it can be hard to single out one student to recognize.  However, the teachers of 6B have been impressed so far with Delia’s bright smile in our classrooms and hallway and her attention to detail!   She seems like the kind of student who understands how to succeed at HMS.  Great job, Delia!
