Practicum Students at HDSMS: We are proud at HD Stafford Middle to consistently host students from university and college during their practicums in areas such as teacher, special education assistants and social workers. Just a heads up that over the next few months we will have several students from these areas working in our school and in our classes.

Community Room Blog: As many of you know, we are proud of our work with the surrounding partners in our community to best support all of our students. And over the past couple years, it has been a specific goal of ours to develop the community school model here at HD Stafford Middle School. As a part of that, we have recently created a Community Room Blog to share the ways we are working with our community for the betterment of kids.
