QT Families at HMS
by Jean Berreckman
Quality Time or QT Family time – Each HMS student is in family group. There are approximately 12-14 students in the group, it’s a mixture of boys and girls and different grades. We have twenty-five family groups. The teacher is the leader of their QT family. Every Friday morning the QT families meet for twenty-five minutes. This is a time for each students to make a connection with another caring adult and other students in their group. Each Friday, we invite the groups to focus on a particular topic, such as Integrity, Assembly Behavior, Social Media Etiquette, etc. QT Family time builds connections and generates a positive, caring, inclusive culture at our middle school.
