Middle School Math Meet

HSISD produces and directs this more seriously competitive mathematics meet for more than 300 6th through 8th grade students from Cass, Berrien, St. Joe, and Van Buren counties.
(will not be held in 2024)


As with all of our youth programs, we produce/direct this special "competition" that resembles the competition of older students. This program serves 3rd through 5th graders.

Young Writers Day

HSISD produces/directs this fine celebration of student writing both by exhibiting literally hundreds of student works, and by introducing our children to published authors and illustrators, as well as leading storytellers. Open to 2nd through 5th grades.
