Did You Know?

Did you know that eighth grade history teachers Rob Lauzon and Christine Rutkowski are piloting in- depth formative assessment work at HMS?  They participated in three days of training last summer as well as monthly training days throughout the school year.  Rob and Christine have "deconstructed" their standards into specific learning targets and are providing students with daily feedback on what they can do and where they can do better.  Students are more actively involved in their own learning, more willing to try again to improve learning, and less driven by grades.  Teachers and students are more focused on specific learning targets.  Results have been extremely positive and encouraging, so Rob and Christine have begun sharing their work with the HMS faculty.

4 Person Scramble—$75 per person includes: 18 Holes with a cart, pulled pork dinner following golf; many contests with great prizes and raffle items! Many business and team sponsorship opportunities as well!

Challenge Day is a workshop that Hartland Middle School at Ore Creek offers to all of its seventh grade students. This program is designed to tear down the walls that separate people and inspire participants to live, study and work in an environment of love, compassion, acceptance and respect.  This program takes place over a three to four day period once a year at Hartland Middle School at Ore Creek and is very costly. The school covers the entire cost by doing numerous fundraising events. This is a program that doesn't just benefit the students of Hartland Middle School. It is much larger than that and its benefits also reach siblings, parents and our community members as well. Please help us in being able to keep this program available in our community so that it continues to be a place of kindness, hope and compassion for one another.
