    ~Hand MS 2024 - 2025 School Year~


    Scholars, Parents, and Guardians,

    Welcome to Hand Middle School, Home of the Hornets, where we THRIVE through trust and honesty in a respectful and diverse culture, and where we value equity and inclusive practices through a shared vision of scholarly engagement of all our scholars.

    Truly, we are forward focused.

    Yet, it is well known that Middle school presents unique challenges for scholars as they navigate personal growth while managing social, emotional, and academic environments. With that in mind, Hand’s unwavering priority is to provide a safe, secure, and positive learning environment that will support each scholar’s journey toward high levels of achievement and overall success: “And a whole lot of joy and love of learning.”

    Complementary to this, our Administrative Leadership team, including the school’s principal, assistant principals, department heads, teachers, staff, and community partners is committed to excellence in education. Thus, we are steadfast in our mission to foster positive relationships with our scholars, maintain high expectations, and promote pride in their achievements. Through a holistic approach, we aim to ensure that our scholars are prepared for high school, college, careers and citizenship readiness.  

    Further, we embrace the wisdom of the African Proverb: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." This philosophy underscores our commitment to collaboration, communication, and the joy of teaching and learning. As a result, we are passionate about engaging our scholars in developing World Class Skills, with a strong focus on critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication.

    As principal, I am profoundly grateful to our Administrative Leadership Team for their longstanding support, encouragement, and friendship. I am also grateful to our community partners, parents, guardians and friends of Hand. Our progress is a testament to our collective efforts. Thank you for journeying with us and for being an integral part of the Hand Middle School community. I eagerly anticipate the continued success and achievements that lie ahead as we focus forward together.

    In closing, I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our exceptional school community and the opportunities we collectively provide.
