Humes Preparatory Middle School Spotlight

December is here and it seems as though November flew by! Our break has come to an end and the Humes team is thankful for the privilege of being the first team to serve the Humes Preparatory Middle School community. We are excited to return to school and end quarter two with a bang! It’s feels like just yesterday this founding partnership was planting the seeds to what is now sprouting into a great school year. What has been key to our success has been the embodiment of the HMS core values.
