Francis C. Hammond Middle School
Located in the heart of beautiful of Alexandria, Virginia, Francis C. Hammond Middle School was built in 1956. The building has housed a variety of grade levels over the course of its storied history. It served as a high school from 1956 until 1971. Hammond High School gained a reputation for being one of the finest schools in the state. As a two-year school (grades 9-10) Hammond was in the forefront of racial desegregation (1971-1979). In the fall of 1979, Francis C. Hammond Junior High School opened (grades 7-9). In the fall of 1993 it was reorganized into a middle school. The latest evolution for Francis C. Hammond was its reorganization in the fall of 2009 as a campus of three middle schools (FCH1, FCH2 and FCH3).
The K-12 Web Archiving Program has been a great addition to the curriculum offered at the School. The Program fits perfectly into Mr. Hewlett’s PACE course on Digital Citizenship. Through the course students spend time each week selecting objects to include in the School’s collections and learning about the creation & preservation of digital information. The students in the course have also had the opportunity to visit the Library of Congress and National Archives to better understand what makes a strong, archival collection. The K-12 Web Archiving Program is helping Hammond students to better understand how to use primary sources and digital content. The students love the sense of making a lasting contribution to history and appreciate being able to share what they are working on with friends, teachers, and parents. The success of the K-12 Web Archiving Program at Hammond is a true source of pride for the School.
