Of eighteen middle schools in Howard County only three were chosen to take up the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) challenge. Only one student’s proposal from Howard County Public Schools (selected by a national review board) was chosen to have the experiment conducted by astronauts on the International Space Station.

Our 8th grader, Kevin He, was that student! Proving yet again, that MHMS kids are out of this world! Read the full announcement below from our Principal Mr. Joshua Wasilewski!  Stay tuned for more exciting details about this amazing accomplishment and pictures, too! Woo hoo!!

HCL – Savage Branch Express


Have you noticed our local HCL Library branch is closed?

Don’t panic! We have an express solution!

From the HCL website:

The Savage Branch is closed through September 2014 for a long awaited renovation. A temporary Savage Branch Express is open in the shopping center located at the intersection of Route 1 and Gorman Road right in front of the Weiss grocery store. The express branch offers a small selection of popular titles, selected HiTech classes, and a limited schedule of children’s classes.

Customers may also pick up reserves and return items at this location.

What does this mean?

You can call ahead, request book titles, and they will order them for you and have them waiting for you to be picked up (like a carry out pizza!) for no extra charge!

Just use the HCL Catalog Search for your desired items, make a list, and call up to request to have them sent to the Savage Express!
