HMS Family Book Club Title
It is a tradition to end our school year with the Kids Reading Across RI title. Please join us on 
Friday, May 3, 2019 at 7:45am to discuss this title. 
The first 12 families to get their permission slip back get a free copy of the book to keep. 
The best part is we will meet and discuss on Friday and then families can go to the State House on Saturday, May 4th to meet the author, have books signed, and play fun games.  It is a great literacy event for the whole family!
Here is the link for details.

I just finished reading a historical fiction mystery filled with codes and ciphers. I'm guessing students would be equally as engaged in this topic as I am!

Two of our HMS students created book trailers for Reading Week. Enjoy!

Fifth grader Morgane created this book trailer based on a favorite fantasy book she has enjoyed recently. Personally, I think she has really good taste.
