Video Segment: Sky's the Limit Shows off Middle School Courtyard

Skys the Limit hosted a presentation and showed off the new Middle School courtyard. Student Ambassador Madison McDougall was kind enough to show HCAM news around the renovated courtyard. Madison talked about how the courtyard not only looks more appealing but there is plenty of space to do numerous educational and fun activities.

Middle School Assistant principal Maryellen Grady started the Sky's The Limit Project when she became motivated to transform the unused space and Principal Alan Keller gave permission to Maryellen Grady to start a school climate committee to transform the courtyard. Maryellen introduced me to Nora Bonnell and Hannah Murphy, 2 Hopkinton High School students who are heavily invested in helping the project. On her birthday Nora asked for money to benefit the Sky's the Limit Project. "When she introduced the project to me, I just think it's a great idea and I think it's a really awesome way to get students to learn in a different way and different environment." Hannah liked the idea of paying tribute to a former student colleague that passed away, Shayne Deroches.
