Harpeth High School News: 2-22-13


HHS Honor Code: All Harpeth students shall embrace the courage to conduct themselves with integrity and honesty in every circumstance.

We will treat all individuals with respect and dignity, celebrating the differences that make us unique.

Harpeth High School was selected as one of 56 teams to compete in the National Science Bowl in Knoxville, Tennessee on February 23. Our team, preparing for the science bowl, consists of: Lydia Gleaves, Rachel Leonard, Jacob Parrish, Andrew Whitaker, and Dallas Hamlin. Tennessee Science Bowl is sponsored by the US Department of Energy and administered by the Oak Ridge Associated Universities. TSB is a fast-paced academic competition for high school students from across the state of Tennessee. Managed by the Office of Science in the Department of Energy, this competition was established to encourage students in the essential subjects of science and mathematics to excel and pursue careers in those fields. Many students will likely go on to become scientists, teachers, engineers, and leaders. Best of luck to our students as they face this worthy challenge.

Harpeth High faculty and staff would like to thank Mrs. Lampley’s Nutrition class for all the goodies made and brought to the office last week. We enjoyed them and appreciated your thoughtfulness. Around the table in the picture are: Savannah Hudson, Carson Marlin, Lauren Cripps, Carly McCain, Will Clayton, and Beau Johnson. Thank you so much!

Any students interested in auditioning for this year’s HHS Talent Show should sign up on Ms. McVay’s door, room 208. You also need to fill out an audition form and turn it in to Ms. McVay.

College/study tip: A student planner is an excellent tool for keeping track of all of your activities and assignments. Record dates and times of meetings, practices, games, and other appointments in the after school spaces. Record assignments and due dates checking them off when completed. Use the monthly calendar to record personal events, such as birthdays and vacation days.

Food for thought: Good schools, like good societies and good families, celebrate and cherish diversity.

Quote of the week: “Those who love you, and are helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on their hearts. . .”
