This “New Kid Handbook” was compiled from the work of all of the 2021-2022 Hoosac Valley Middle School sixth grade students who found inspiration from Jordan Banks, the main character of New Kid by Jerry Craft.
From HVMS sixth graders to incoming students: The purpose of the New Kid Handbook is to help students new to Hoosac Valley Middle School get through the first few days of school. It provides schedules, directions, teacher lists, after school clubs, tips and tricks for making friends and more!
At the meeting, the school committee voted unanimously to adopt the handbook as the official “New Kid Handbook” to be provided to all students new to Hoosac Valley Middle School!
We are so proud of our exceptional scholars who were inspired by a book they read in class, identified a problem that kids face in the world today, and collaboratively developed a plan to right this wrong. They proved to everyone the power of student voice to make change for the better!
Special shout out to Summer, Paeton, Peyton, Marian, Tessa, Lukas, Aviana, Addy Genevieve, Kiley, Griffin, Ms. Gale, and Ms. Wright for representing at the school committee meeting on Monday!
