graders combine efforts with the Student Council
and send letters of support and packages to the
many area service men and women serving our
country in foreign nations.
In the past, we have received letters of thanks
from the soldiers and family members letting us
know the importance the letter, card, or package
from HCMS students has made.
Some of the past recipients of our letters and
packages have been so touched by the generosity
and support of the students, staff, and
community, they have visited HCMS.
