February 28, 2020 Principal's Message


Welcome Mr. Benton


Please join me in welcoming Mr. Tom Benton as the interim principal beginning Monday, March 2. Benton is a wonderful person as well as a thoughtful and caring educator.  He is also familiar with both middle school and multi-track year-round.  He is excited to begin and get to know the wonderful HMS community.
