Harpeth High School hosted the Harpeth Invitational Wrestling Tournament this past weekend. HHS wrestlers did very well and gained experience. Congratulations go to Camron Cox who placed 1st in the 120 lb. weight class. James Sokol placed 2nd in the 126 lb. weight class. Way to go, Indian wrestlers! We are proud of you!

During the monthly meeting at the Board of Education on Monday, HHS was presented the Reward School banner for the 2011-2012 school year. Reward Schools are the top 10% of schools in the state comprised of 5% high best performing schools based on success rate and 5% highest progress schools based on value added scores. The data inputs for the calculations of the success rate include Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology I, and the graduation rate. We appreciate our dedicated faculty for the superb effort and for many hard working students. We are proud to accept this award.

Danielle Montgomery, Taylor Stringer, Savannah Conley and of course, our wonderful Mrs. D!

We would like to congratulate HHS theatre teacher Anita Defrancesca. She was selected by the CCEA/TEA for The Distinguished Educator Award. Mrs. D will be moving on to the state level for the chance to win one of the TEA’s Statewide Awards. This is a very well-deserved recognition. Thanks Mrs. D for your dedication to our HHS students! You’re the BEST!! Congratulations!
