The Tennessee Science Bowl is sponsored by the US Department of Energy and administered by Oak Ridge Associated Universities. TSB is a fast-paced academic competition for high school students from across the state of Tennessee. HHS was selected as one of 56 teams and will compete in Knoxville, TN on February 23, 2013. In preparation for the 2013 TSB, our students are increasing their aptitudes and abilities in areas that will make them valuable in the highly competitive global marketplace. During the competition, the students will be challenged to solve mathematical problems and tested on their knowledge of a wide range of disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth science and physics. HHS science and math teachers have been advising our team. Good luck to the HHS TSB team!!

Do you have extra jeans you are tired of? Bring them to school!! The Service Learning class is actively taking part in “Teens for Jeans,” where we will collect jeans to donate to homeless teenagers. The grade level that brings in the most jeans will win a prize!

Thanks to everyone who came out for homecoming Saturday at Harpeth High School.

Congratulations to the 2013 homecoming king Jack Barquet, with beautiful escort Rebecca Burnett, and his homecoming court! Thanks to the HHS basketball teams for all the excitement provided on the court as well. Volunteering to clean the gym on Monday with Mrs. Sig were Tori Riley, Annie Price, Chassity Choate, and Ruthie Tate.

Thanks, ladies, for a job well done!
