Do you want to be a part of designing our next division-level strategic plan? If so, please plan to be at Hungary Creek Middle School (4909 Francistown Road) at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 8, to hear from Mr. David Stephen, co-founder of High Tech High and New Vista Designs for Learning (http://newvistadesign.net/pages/about.bio.html). The focus of the evening will be the cornerstone of Academic Achievement.
Mr. Stephen will discuss how the design of school programs and buildings can best support the changing needs of ‘future ready’ students and teachers. Mr. Stephen has over 20 years of experience partnering with some of the field’s best visionaries, working with schools nationwide to imagine, develop, and implement innovative school programs. His message will revolve around the cornerstone of Academic Progress.
The bottom line is that we want to hear from you as to how HCPS can continue its history of being a forward thinking school division. Mr. Stephen is guaranteed to stimulate our thinking and help promote innovative ideas for our schools that will benefit our students and our community.
I look forward to seeing you Wednesday evening to meet and hear from Mr. Stephen.
You are also invited to give us your thoughts on the new strategic plan by completing a short online survey or applying for a steering committee of 15-20 people. Look for other ways to get involved throughout the school year.

6th graders, is your bookbag already a mess? Is it hard to keep track of assignments or find materials when you need them?
If this sounds like you, stop by Corotoman Cafeteria on Monday mornings between 8:05-8:30 AM to work with Mr. Freeman. Bring your backpacks along with a signed pass from their first or fifth period teacher in order to participate.
