*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.

Over the last couple of weeks, Mrs. Copeland and her assistants and students have been doing their part to beautify our campus. They are creating a nice fall display at the front entrance of HHS. Thank you for all your efforts. You are doing a great job students!

We would like to invite everyone to senior night at the Harpeth Indians football game tonight. We are facing the Cheatham County Cubs which should prove to be an exciting game. Congratulations to all our senior football players, cheerleaders, and band members. It has been a delight watching you grow and improve as the years have flown by. Way to go, Indians!!

In our counselors’ office this year, we would like to reacquaint you with Mrs. Tonya Chase. Mrs. Chase has come to Harpeth High via Kingston Springs Elementary and Harpeth Middle School. Mrs. Chase is the counselor for the freshman and sophomore classes. We were also fortunate to have Mrs. Andrea Holley moved to HHS last year. Mrs. Holley works with juniors and seniors. Our guidance department is glad to assist all students by encouraging them to set their goals high. Over this past week, our counselors have focused on college week. All students have had the opportunity to apply to colleges on-line in the A+ lab. We have challenged students with college trivia and alma maters from different learning institutions. We would also like to thank Mrs. Terri Fisher for all her support and assistance in that department.

In addition to Mrs. Chase and Mrs. Holley, we also have access to the STARS program, Students Taking A Right Stand. Mrs. Jo Beshears is available at HHS most Wednesdays to help our students work through their issues.

Bullying is an issue that we take very seriously at Harpeth High School. The Bullying Policy(#6.304) states that social cruelty or bullying is not acceptable at Harpeth High School and will not be tolerated. All allegations of bullying will be taken seriously and will be investigated. Students involved in allegations of bullying will be counseled. Those found by administration to be involved will face disciplinary action at the discretion of the principal. Threatening physical harm to students, name calling, destruction of personal property, slander, and creating a hostile or uncomfortable learning environment for another student are all examples of bullying. Please encourage your student to make good choices. We appreciate your support of HHS.

HHS upcoming sporting events include: football hosting Cheatham at 7:30 for senior night. Go Indians!!

HHS Beliefs: Harpeth High believes that the appearance and the climate of the school influences the community attitude toward the school.
