HHS grad news
Anne Hughes recently sent us an update on her daughter, Mira Hughes. Here is what she had to say:
Mira Hughes (HHS class of 2022) was awarded a Planet Detroit Climate Leadership Award at the Detroit Bioneers Conference at University of Detroit Mercy on Saturday, Oct. 15 for her work as the President of LEAP (Leaders of Environmental Awareness and Preservation), an environmental club at Hamtramck High School.
Mira was a member of LEAP for all four years of high school, and President for two of those years. LEAP has established a recycling program in the high school, and members also do citywide clean sweeps, and tree plantings in the city of Hamtramck.
LEAP also partners with Be a Good Neighbor, led by Rev. Sharon Buttry, a grass roots Hamtramck organization that supports community gardens, clean-ups, and environmental awareness programs. Mira is a freshman at U of M, Ann Arbor.

Health news
The health and safety of our students is a top priority. As COVID-19 and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) infection cases rise, we want to remind you of the actions HPS is taking to protect our students and staff. In addition to increased sanitization of frequent touch points in all district buildings and continued handwashing, we also provide free at-home COVID-19 tests available with the district nurse or your school’s main office.
Please remember to stay home when sick and wear a mask to reduce risk of infection. We have mask sizes for adults and children available at all district buildings.

Helping hands
Hamtramck Public Schools (HPS) will be partnering with the Detroit Friendship House to giveaway Thanksgiving meals to HPS families. Interested families can participate by completing a simple form and arriving on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or until supplies last to pick-up their meal.
The meal is complete with a turkey, sides and dessert with halal options available to those interested. HPS is devoted to serving students and their families beyond school doors.
If transportation is unavailable, drop-offs can be coordinated upon request by connecting with school and community facilitator, Elizabeth Alpert.
Friendship House is located at 9540 Conant.
