On August 23, 2012 Hemby Bridge staff members accepted an award as a UCPS Global Affiliate School during the county-wide recognition event held at The Central Academy of Technology and Arts (CATA). Hemby Bridge was one of 12 schools to earn this award at the annual UCPS celebration of globally-aware schools.

Globalization activities last year included our International Festival and learning about other cultures from our Visiting International Faculty member Marcel Hollis (New Zealand) and family members who presented information about Ireland, Russia, and Japan. Environmental recycling efforts and exploring our world via Skype and other Web 2.0 tools were other parts of our globalization activities.

HB students and staff are eager to continue the globalization focus for the 2012-2013 school year.
