Caught Reading Initiative
Mrs. Toni Segool (6-4a Language Arts teacher) and Ms. Kendra Allen (Media Specialist) with the support of the HGMS PTSA have developed the Caught Reading Initiative. The purpose of this program is to encourage reading by all members of the HGMS community and to create a culture of reading at our school in conjunction with the 40 Book Challenge. Ultimately, we want all students and staff to become independent readers who want to read!
Staff, students and parents are encouraged to email or bring in pictures of themselves “caught” reading! The stranger the place and the more creative the photo, the better! We want to show that reading is not just done during SSR or in school, you can read anytime and ANYWHERE! Staff and students who send in a picture will be rewarded with a gift from a local business thanks to the support of the PTSA. In addition, we will create a bulletin board display outside of the Media Center to showcase all of those who were caught reading and to encourage others to do the same! Finally, we will have a quarterly contest to reward the student or staff member who sends us the most creative, inspiring or interesting photo! Photos should be emailed to email@example.com or can be turned in to Mrs. Segool in room 1217 or Ms. Allen in the Media Center.
Additionally, Mrs. Segool and Ms. Allen will be starting a student group of reading ambassadors who will help to encourage reading throughout the school by creating displays, books lists, posters, book commercials and other creative projects to encourage others to read. Information about joining this group will be given to students during Media circulation during the first quarter and an application to join the group is available on the Media Center website.

2014-2015 HGMS Mentor Application
Mentors are a group of students who demonstrate leadership skills. There are no requirements to join the group but students are expected to work continuously toward improvement after membership. Mentors strive to foster a better school climate and be leaders in their community. They maintain a high standard of academic, personal, and community expectations. This is accomplished and shown in their work in a variety of ways, including welcoming new students with tours, buddy assignments, working school events and even a monthly new student celebration to make sure everyone feels welcomed. They also partner with various other clubs and organizations to provide enrichment opportunities such as anti-bullying campaigns, career fairs for elementary students, and a weekly student written, edited and produced news show! Mentors recently embarked on a historical monuments tour of Atlanta, Washington DC. and Spain. Mentors are determined to be of service to their community and peers.
