CALLING ALL 8th GRADE PARENTS – The HMS PTO is looking for feedback on the 8th Grade Graduation Celebration. Please follow this LINK to complete the survey. Students are welcome to participate too.

Goodbye Mrs. Vescovi From HMS Students

Gail Vescovi joined District 181’s support staff in 1993. Along with mastering countless administrative tasks (like 8th grade graduation), she’s welcomed students, parents, visitors, and teachers into our building since 1996. She is a true LEGEND. Students showed their appreciation by lining the halls with notes of gratitude and congratulations during the final week of school. Mrs. Vescovi will be greatly missed as she enjoys her well deserved retirement!
