MHS Students and Families Enjoy Winter Family Weekend
On March 8-10, Milton Hershey School welcomed parents/sponsors to campus for its annual Winter Family Weekend. Throughout the weekend, students and parents/sponsors visited with one another, attended informational workshops, enjoyed visual and performing arts performances, and had opportunities to participate in service-oriented activities.
On Friday, parents/sponsors visited students in the classroom and enjoyed lunch on campus. Several parents/sponsors also attended Spartan Sponsor Academy, a “Life After MHS” meeting, and Spartan Family Network gatherings to learn more about how to support students, address homesickness, and prepare for graduation.
On Saturday, MHS hosted a Student Health Services Fair. Through interactive activities, parents/sponsors learned more about the school’s whole child approach to education, including the dental, medical, psychology, and social work departments.
Throughout the weekend, students and their families also enjoyed performances by the MHS Visual and Performing Arts department. High school students performed “Beauty and the Beast” and staff members showcased their artwork in the Clyde Stacks Visual Arts Gallery.
Milton Hershey School’s family weekends provide parents/sponsors with an opportunity to tour the MHS campus, meet staff, build relationships with the MHS community, and celebrate students’ hobbies and interests.
