Christian Release Time
HMS is re-establishing a program called "Release Time". It is a non-denominational Bible study that will be held off campus during a Thursday related arts class. It will be held at Simpsonville First Baptist in downtown Simpsonville.
It is of course optional but requires a registration/permission slip if your child is to attend. Ms. Denise Norman is the supervisor of the program.
Participants will be bussed to and from the church for the 1 hour class. Parent volunteers will be present to escort your child once they reach the church.
The first class will be Thursday, January 22, 2015 during your child's morning related arts class. For more information, please contact Assistant Principal, Janet Kirby, phone 355-6116.
