8th Graders Hear Stories from World War Two surviviors

Seven Harding Middle School eighth graders were privileged to hear stories from two survivors of World War Two on Monday, Oct. 17. Former German citizens Briggette and Manfred Porschke spoke about what it was like during and after the war. Rationing, living conditions, food, American soldiers, and air raid shelters were just a few of the topics mentioned. The eighth graders are also learning about the war through their reading of the Newbery Medal book "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry.

HMS Students Storm the Q Arena for Pre-Season Game

HMS student fundraiser VIPs attended the CAVS pre-season game versus the Orlando Magic on October 5.  The CAVS beat the Magic, but the real fun was had by students who attended the game with their friends and family. 

In partnership with Great American Fundraising, HMS students could earn free CAVS tickets to the October 5th game versus the Magic for participating in the school fundraiser.  Students who earned the VIP CAVS party also had a chance to participate in a shoot around on the CAVS court, earn prizes during a CAVS trivia game, and high five players as they entered the court. 

Mr. Sullivan, Assistant Principal, chaperoned the field trip along with other staff members.  “I have never seen our students so excited,” said Sullivan.  “They literally couldn’t sit still!  It was so nice to see our students enjoying time with their friends and family and watch the CAVS bring home a win.”
