    SUBMITTED

    Every student and teacher in Henry County Middle School recently read the same book– at the same time–as a school-wide read.
    The book, “Restart” by Gordon Korman deals with change, honesty, kindness and tolerance as a former eighth grade bully suffers amnesia and returns to school to re-evaluate what kind of person he is, how others perceive him and who he really wants to be. His amnesia gives him a fresh start at school, something HCMS Principal Lucia Hughes wanted her students to experience as well.

  • HCMS students fundraise for essential items in backpacks for the homeless

    Students in Tara McMahan’s community service class at Henry County Middle School were recently tasked with identifying a group of people, charity or project that was “near or dear to their hearts.”
    Because two of the students in the class, Mason King and Jacob Jeffries, had previously participated in projects that helped the homeless, they suggested doing something that would benefit the homeless in our area. The rest of the class agreed, and soon they were taking steps to sponsor a donation drive.

    Three years ago, the first freshman class at iLEAD Academy walked through the doors on the first day of school to find a school building unlike any they had seen before. An open-concept space, the building had an area called the Maker Space, bean bag chairs and no traditional desks. It also had no carpet and no computers on that first day.

    Today, 30 of the original 43 students remain and make up the first senior class for iLEAD Academy.
