Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Hammond Middle School - HMS!
In these uncertain times, we at the HMS PTA want to ensure our families, students and teachers know that they are supported. To do this we will continue to educate, advocate, enrich, and engage the HMS community even through a virtual setting.
Not only does this school year starts a new way of teaching and a new way of learning, it also marks the 50th Year Anniversary for HMS. And our PTA will celebrate this milestone with a fresh look with a new MASCOT. Starting in December our students will design a new MASCOT for the school that will stand as a symbol of our strength and diversity.
In closing, I would like to remind you our PTA would not be able to flourish and meet its goals without your help. So please become a member and volunteer. Your support guarantees that every child at HMS has a profound the middle school experience which allows them to reach their full potential.
Remember together we are Viking strong!
