HMS Parents: we have a limited quantity of yearbooks for sale today. They are $35 and will be sold to 8th grade 1st then 7th then 6th and only if all fees/fines are paid and uniforms/books have been turned in. Have a great summer.
Every day, we feel fortunate to have hundreds of people work in our schools to support our students, and we thank them for their ongoing commitment. This last week of school is always a week full of energy, excitement, and hope. Each level of school sends a group of students to advance to a new level of learning or even to a new level of life. We are proud to be a part of their journey. It has been common practice to read the name of each graduate as they approach the stage to receive their diploma. Students who choose not to attend or cannot attend for a number of reasons are listed in the program, newspaper, and other published material, but their names are typically not read during the ceremony. However, Carbon High reviews requests for recognition for graduates who are unable to attend. As for the current situation on social media, there has been no request by a graduating student or their family member to have a student's name read who cannot attend the 2023 graduation. As always, conversations are encouraged and essential to understanding and working toward solutions. We ask that efforts from our community focus on celebrating our graduating seniors. It saddens us to see unnecessary outrage that could have been avoided with a direct conversation. Once again, thank you to the staff members who have planned this huge event, and congratulations to our accomplished graduates!!!
