Mission statement: HHS provides a safe learning community which challenges its students academically, artistically, and athletically. We empower our students to become life-long learners who possess integrity and wisdom.
Harpeth High School would like to recognize a few of our students who scored well on the PSAT. The PSAT is a test that is used as the initial screener by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to recognize and honor the academically talented students of the United States. Approximately 1.5 million students across the U.S. took the PSAT in October and the following student’s scores put them in the 90th percentile or above: Elizabeth Dixon, Taylor Gracia, Beau Johnson, Lauren Kriminger, Joshua Parrish, and Macy Pate. All students, who took the test, will find out if they are a semi-finalist next September . We are very proud of these students for their accomplishment.
We would also like to congratulate the following students for scoring in the 90th percentile in the nation on their PLAN test: Cole Beshears, Thomas Culley, Travis Dixon, Cameron Eanes, Ian Franck, Jack Gargaro, Dylan Harrison, Nolan Jolley, Jacob Leonard, Sean Martin, Jacob Murrell, Trent Norden, Alec Perigo, Liza Riddle, Grayson Scott, Chris Senn, Erica Whiteaker.
A reminder for everyone that exams have started today and will last until Wednesday, December 19. December 14, 17, and 18 are full school days. First and second period exams will be given on December 14, 3rd and 4th period on December 17, 5th and 6th on December 18, and 7th period on December 19.
December 19 is half day of school with a 10:45 dismissal. Attendance rules will still apply. Also, student may not leave early even if they finish their exam early. They must stay until that class period is over. It becomes too distracting for students still working on the exam for other students to leave randomly. Thank you for your cooperation and respect for other students.
Upcoming events: HHS vs. Franklin 12/15, basketball; Harpeth wrestling at the Beech Invitational, 12/15. Winter break December 20-January 1. School resumes January 2. Next report card day January 9.
High school/college tip: Managing your time wisely ensures you have the time to do both what you need to do and what you want to do. Three keys to remember are: 1) set aside specific times for routine tasks, map out time for everything you have to do, and build in some flexibility. Some things may take more or less time than you expect. Plan on it!
HHS beliefs: We believe that each member of our community should have reason to be proud of their school.
