    Welcome to Semester 2 of the 2022-2023 School Year!

    Winter break not only offers us a time to rest, reflect and reconnect with family and friends, but it also offers us time to plan for a successful second semester. As your Hand family, we are prepared to lead and guide your student to a successful finish.

    I look forward to welcoming you back to Hand, where we work together to transform lives through education and socialization, and to empower all our students to achieve their fullest potential and dreams.

    Where we honor the past, serve in the present, and prepare our students for the future, to thrive and to achieve their fullest potential and dreams.

                             Our Aim is to Restart Strong and S.O.A.R.          

    Surpass Expectations for Teaching and Learning

      Organize Innovative Learning Experiences

    Achieve Academic Success

                       Respect Self and Others

    Further, Hand is committed to the joy and passion of teaching and learning where we engage our students in developing the framework known as the “Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. The Profile identifies three broad sets of attributes known as: World Class Knowledge, World Class Skills, and Life and Career Characteristics.”

    Hand is committed to the joy and passion of teaching and learning, where we engage our students in developing World Class Skills, with particular emphasis on Critical thinking and problem solving; and our Vision and Mission Statements that outline our school’s values and objectives.

    Hand's Vision: To help all students reach high levels of achievement in a safe, secure, and positive learning environment.  

    Hand's Mission: To empower all students for greater academic and social engagement while on their journey of readiness toward high school, college, and career; and to provide exceptional service to help make life better for themselves, their families, communities, and all human kind.

    Hand's Mantra: One Hand, One Voice, serving every child, every day.  

    We as a collective whole believe in our vision and mission to ensure success of all students. On behalf of all our faculty, staff, and administrative team we welcome you to Hand Middle School, where we honor the past, serve in the present, to prepare our students for the future. 

    “Together, our students thrive!”

    Dr. Patrice T. Green, EdD, Principal
