HWS

Students at Henderson Ward Stewart Elementary School enjoy the new Art Garden as HWS is recognized by the Mississippi Department of Education.

On Tuesday, Henderson Ward Stewart Elementary School (HWS) was recognized by the Mississippi Department of Education as a Mississippi Science of Reading School in a special presentation at the newly installed HWS Art Garden. 

This recognition from the MDE Office of Elementary Education and Reading, Division of Literacy, in collaboration with Voyager Sopris, highlighted HWS's efforts to implement the best practices aligned to the science of reading and celebrate a change of school culture, educator attitudes, and confidence levels in teaching students to read.

As part of this recognition, the Division of Literacy presented the school with a Mississippi Science of Reading School banner to commemorate this level of achievement.
