HMS has many parents who are still learning English, most of them Spanish speakers, but the interpreter is available only two days. Did you know? The HMS Foundation is funding a bilingual liaison, Ailyn Ueda, to help our Spanish speaking parents communicate more effectively with teachers and staff, so that they can all work together to help our students learn.
