  • 11th Graders Taking PSAT

    Posted by Bill Brossman on 9/28/2023 4:00:00 PM

    This afternoon during WIN, juniors completed a series of steps on their iPads to prepare for the upcoming PSAT on the morning of Wednesday, October 11. These steps allow students to properly register for the test and have their devices ready to go on testing day. These steps must be completed in order to successfully access the test on testing day. Students will have a unique ticket that they will receive on testing day, as well as a dedicated room to take the test. Testing locations will be shared with students in the coming weeks.

    Students have also worked through a series of steps to prepare their devices during a previous WIN time. Instructions for doing so can also be accessed in the Class of 2025 Schoology Course, as well as by clicking here.

    Finally, if your student missed either WIN session to prepare their devices and/or complete the registration process, we will have one additional session next week. If you have any further questions about the upcoming PSAT related to registration and devices, please reach out to your student’s counselor.

  • This Week at HHS

    Posted by Bill Brossman on 9/24/2023 4:00:00 PM

    Principal’s Message

    Thank you to everyone who came out to support the HHS Mini-Thon with their Gold-Out this past Friday night. It was wonderful to see both student sections and so many community members wearing gold to join in the fight against pediatric cancer. The nature of sports is that someone will win, and someone will lose. Regardless of the outcome of the game, the real winners Friday night were the families that the Mini-Thon’s from both schools will be able to support.

    Although, we are ending September this will only be our second full 5-day week of school. This week at HHS we have a relatively quiet week. This could be viewed as the calm before the storm of our much-anticipated Homecoming week. Our students have a full slate of activities planned for Homecoming that will include something for everyone. You can see a list of events below under looking ahead. We will provide more details in next week’s This Week at HHS.

    Thank you and have a wonderful week!
