    Dear Hand Families:

    On behalf of the entire Hand Middle School (HMS) faculty, staff and administration, I am truly honored to welcome our returning families, and to extend our warmest of welcomes to our newest families joining us this school year 2019-2020.  At Hand, we are filled with pride, because of our school’s tradition of excellence in education, by setting high expectations, emphasizing learning and growth, helping to develop leadership qualities and skills, and utilizing research-based best practices, collectively, to advance 21st Century teaching and learning.

    Surely, as I reflect on Hand’s accomplishments, past and present, I can truly say, because of the unwavering support of our families and community stakeholders, faculty, staff and administration:      “We are One Hand, One Voice, Serving Every Child, Every Day.” We are committed to preparing our students for successful Green 2019 achievement in middle and high school, in college and career, and locally, nationally and globally, through World Class Knowledge, Skills, and Life and Career Characteristics of the Profile of the SouthCarolina Graduate, as determined by the South Carolina Department of Education, and Richland School District One. 

    I look forward to working with you during the coming year to provide the best possible education for our children and yours. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Together, we will propel our 21st Century learners to lives of successful achievement, to expect to work with peers across the globe, and to make Hand Middle School, in Richland One, the best place for learners to be!



    Dr. Patrice T. Green, Principal

    Hand Middle School, Richland School District One
