Smiles behind the masks
Enter the HMS Button Project! Each staff member shared a photo of themselves smiling. Students in the Autistic Support classroom then took the photos and handmade buttons for each staff member. Staff are encouraged to wear the buttons each day.
At Haverford Middle School the faculty’s main goal is for students to feel welcome, comfortable and free to learn. The school places great pride in having cheerful staff that builds positive student relationships. Given these challenging times and the changes taking place, district educators hope the buttons bring students comfort in seeing the smiling faces of the teachers and staff.
So far, the students in the Autistic Support classroom have made 81 buttons!
