Harpeth High School News: 9-21-12

Mr. Jerrod Shipman

Mission statement: The mission of Harpeth High School is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become productive and responsible members of society. “Caring and sharing knowledge forever.”

Welcome to homecoming Friday at Harpeth High School! The atmosphere at Harpeth has been buzzing with many homecoming activities. We started the week in comfort mode with pajama day-one of the most favorite days of the year! Tuesday was decades day-a blast from the past. We saw memorable outfits from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.

Remember the hair styles? Wednesday was tie dye vs. camo day-always a fun day. On Thursday, we were tacky as we can be. Spirit day Friday had the students showing their school colors at the pep rally-go Harpeth go!! We look forward to seeing all the floats that each class has produced. The creativity is truly memorable. Great job students for making this a great homecoming week. Look for all the sweethearts, the queen with her homecoming court, and all the marvelous floats in coming editions of the South Cheatham Advocate.

In the teacher spotlight this week, we would like to introduce you to Mr. Jerrod Shipman. Mr. Shipman teaches Physical Science and Biology 2. Mr. Shipman hails from Ohio and received his masters from MTSU. He has also been approved by Nashville State Community College to teach Dual-Enrollment Biology which we will be able to offer in the future because of his addition to the Harpeth staff. Talented with computers and possessing a mechanical background, he has become a valuable asset to the science team at HHS. Mr. Shipman states, “Currently in the lab, we are researching how enzymes respond to temperature changes comparable to the reactions of the digestive process.” He is a problem solver and is enthusiastic about challenging our science students. Welcome to the Harpeth team, Mr. Shipman. We are glad to have you on the Indian staff.

Sports games for the week include: football Friday at Montgomery Central, volleyball home vs. FRA on Monday and away at Waverly on Tuesday, district competition for golf on Tuesday at Swan Lake.

Harpeth Belief: Learning is most effective when it stimulates thought and interest.

Quote of the week: “Let him that would move the world, first move himself .” Socrates

Have a memorable homecoming weekend! Go Indians!!
