HMS Week 2 Distance Learning Dear Teachers, Parents and Students, It is with deep gratitude that I write to you all this morning. The support of all parents in our scurry to provide high-quality on-line distance teaching and learning has been undeniably one of our foundational cornerstones. The teachers worked through their unpredicted vacation week as a true professional learning community to learn new internet platforms, learn new and best practices for virtual learning that keeps children engaged and passionate. We experienced some potholes but we bypassed them with success. It is heartwarming to see how dedicated all the parents and teachers have been working night and day for the benefit of the children. I am blessed to be a part of a community that bonds together to support each other recognizing the importance of showing our children how to deal with productive struggle, perseverance, and passion for learning. While we may be physically separated, we are growing together in a very special way. I hope everyone had a healthy weekend, made family memories and got some sunshine in on Saturday! What did you do that was new, different and out of the ordinary? By weekday, I am an elementary school principal, by weekend, a fire pit builder and an interior painter! Definitely new and different for me! Last week, you all ROCKED it! Let's grab hold of this week and attack it with the vigor you did last week! Please feel free to contact me with any questions via email so I may be a support to you! Wash, wash, wash your hands! Tracey A. McGee Principal Hampden Meadows School

GIRLS NIGHT INFO- We understand that there are concerns about COVID-19. At this time, the RIDOH is recommending that people practice caution when meeting in groups—that they do not attend if sick—and that they avoid shaking hands or hugging. They have not yet recommended cancelling events. In light of that, we plan to hold the Girls Puberty Night this Wednesday, March 11, from 6:15-7:30. If you or your child feels ill, we ask that you please stay home. If you are uncomfortable attending a public event due to other factors, you are encouraged to check out The Care and Keeping if You, Volume 1, and attend next year when Dr. Douglas returns for her 9th Puberty Night! If there are updates to the RIDOH recommendations, we will notify you ASAP—so please check our website before coming out Wednesday night.
