Arts in Basic Curriculum



HEMMS is an ABC Project Site school!  With this designation, we have been the fortunate recipients of a $10,000.00 recurring annual grant that allows our school to provide arts experiences for our student body and staff as well as the greater school community. Arts in Basic Curriculum Project provides programmatic support, training, and resources that assist sites with their strategic planning goals and philosophical commitments.  

HEMMS Mission Statement

To provide a complete arts education for diverse learners across the curriculum through the arts.

HEMMS Vision Statement

Provide a unique learning community where students learn and grow in and through the arts.

Art Advocacy in South Carolina

The funding of the ABC Project Grant is distributed by the SC Arts Commission, but it relies entirely on the state budgeting process. Down load the Advocacy for the Arts Info Sheet to learn more about taking action, contacting our state representative, Bill Herbkersman, to let him know how much we value and benefit from these grants, and finding other ways to preserve arts education and keep funding available.
