Please join HMS students and sign up for our

maybe you’ll understand why I do what I do.
are excited to introduce a school-wide reading experience that will foster and
promote a community of readers at HMS while also celebrating our diversity.
The goal is to encourage empathy, perspective-taking, and acceptance by
prompting Hawks to read books, both fiction and nonfiction, about people who
are different from themselves. By immersing ourselves in the stories of others,
we can better understand the paths they choose to follow and experience what it
means to “WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES.” That is our theme. Click on the link for more detail.
a Mile is
an opportunity to build communities of readers at HMS: in classrooms, through
clubs and organizations, on athletic teams, with friends, family members, teachers, and
coworkers. Each team’s goal is to read 5,280 minutes, the same number of feet
in a mile, during the month of March.
March 8th and March 13th, our students will make teams of no more than
15 readers. Smaller teams are welcome, too! Team captains will register
their team on our Google Site, pick up a swag bag of goodies to get the team
started, and encourage their teammates to come to the LMC (Library Media
Center) to check out books.
