Each Friday afternoon, Helen Keller Middle School parents receive a handful of pictures in their email inboxes. 

Principal Susan Kaplan and Assistant Principal Annie Mohr started sharing candid school photos earlier this school year, to give parents insight into what is going on in school, and to give parents an opportunity to discuss school with their children.  (We’re all familiar with the cliche: “What happened in school today?” “Nothing.”)

Kaplan and Mohr are well aware that the priority of pre-adolescent children is not necessarily to share many details of their school day. They share these pictures with the community as a way for all residents to know more about Easton’s middle school.

It was a packed house for the HKMS Chess Club tournament after school.
Mr. Jocker’s eighth grade ILA students celebrated the publishing of their personal memoirs.  They took time to share their writing with each other.  
Eighth-grade government students were all smiles as they read the touching thank you notes from the students of Curiale School in Bridgeport.  The students of Curiale School were grateful for the holiday toys they received in December.
