20% Time at Hixson Middle School

Good afternoon,

This semester, the students on Team Harmony at Hixson Middle School are being given the support and "space" to follow their passions and interest in new and different ways.  After much thought and planning, Don Eckert and Melissa Hellwig made the decision to allow students to engage in "20% time" during one class period each week.  Please check out the blog site below to see how the hands, hearts, and minds of the children and teachers are being engaged in new and beautiful ways.

Take care...John
