Welcome to Hand Middle School, Home of the Hornets, where we believe fostering positive relationships is the foundation to children reaching their fullest potential in an environment conducive for learning; promoting pride in each other and our school is the foundation to educating the whole child; and, elevating opportunities and expectations is the foundation for children developing honorable character, achieving academic and artistic success in preparation for college and career.
At Hand, we are committed to serving every child every day, empowering each with a sense of self-worth through the 21st Century 4 Cs: Creativity, Critical thinking, Collaboration, and Communication. These World Class skills are a priority in our classrooms, as we fulfill our investment in a positive social and emotional learning environment. We will continue in our history of valuing the “Five A’s”: academics, attendance, arts, athletics, and attitude.
Again, welcome and thank you for joining us on a stellar new year as we honor the past, serve the present and prepare our students for the future.
We will go farther together.
