    Mrs. Kam spoke to the students about the writing process, the GRIT it takes to be a writer, and her personal journey as a published award-winning author. Students were thrilled to meet her and enjoyed an informative audience-engaged presentation. In addition to being treated to personally signed bookmarks, Mrs. Kam too some time after the assembly to take pictures with students. Students and teachers alike were thrill to learn about the writing process and how stories come to life!

    Congratulations to HBT Middle School’s Science Olympiad Team 34, which took eighth place overall at the New York State Science Olympiad Regional competition and earned a trip to the New York State Science Olympiad finals!

    Overall, HBT earned 14 medals in 12 different events at regionals. Special thanks to the hardworking sixth and seventh graders, who will be counted on to lead the team next year.  Coaches are also hopeful that some of this year’s stellar eighth graders return as mentors next year. Current high school freshmen Sophia Jang and Caroline Ruggiero, members of last year’s HBT Science Olympiad team, returned to lend their expertise to this year’s group.
