What Our Families Are Saying
"Each day, as we drive home, we discuss good things that happened while at school. It's fun to hear the stories of kindness, compassion and love that come from them while on our ride home. Some days it's helping a friend clean up a spill, some days it's being the morning message helper, some days it's about adding a loved one to the prayer board. Good things are happening at HFSM!" - HFSM Parents Jeremy and Megan Schmitt
