    Message from the Principal 

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  Even before I officially started as principal of Hand Middle School, I have been overwhelmed by the prayers, encouragement, and support extended to me by the entire Hornet community.  It has been my distinct pleasure meeting with many of you as I have transitioned into this new and exciting leadership position.  Achievements at Hand Middle School are legendary, and I anticipate nothing but re-committed excellence in our five A’s: academics, arts, athletics, attendance, and attitude.  Uniting with a new administrative team this summer, we have worked tirelessly to prepare our faculty, staff, and students for the best school year yet.  As we all learn and grow together, I ask you to reach out to me directly if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.  


    With Hornet PRIDE,

    Dr. Robin L. Hardy, Principal
