Harpeth High School News: 4-28-13


HHS assessment beliefs: We believe that to improve student success, assessment needs to be an on-going process made up of a variety of assignments and measurements.

We would like to congratulate Isa Richards, Ethan Boyd, Dallas Hamlin, Joseph Harness and Justin Smith for their participation in the county-wide science fair on April 18. Isa, Ethan, and Dallas took 1st place in the Biology Division for their project on “Plant Anti-Freeze.”

Justin Smith and Joseph Harness took 1st place honors in the physical science division for their project on “Surface Tension Raft.” Congratulations to all of these fine young men for their accomplishments in science and for representing Harpeth High School in impressive style. Great job!


Congratulations are due to two very well deserving Harpeth students for being awarded the Heritage Bank Scholarship for 2013. They are Amber Yarbrough and Dallas Hamlin. Excellent job!!

Mr. and Mrs. Allen Rose invite you to their newly renovated bed and breakfast at the old Ravensgate plantation. Who are the Roses you may ask? They are characters in Harpeth High School’s Advanced Theatre class production of “The Beating Heart” written by Craig Sodaro. “The Beating Heart” is the story of a modern day Bed & Breakfast haunted by a ghost from the Civil War. A young college senior travels to Ravensgate wanting to unlock the mystery behind a photograph she has been given of a woman that lived at Ravensgate. As she attempts to unlock the events of the young woman’s life, a story of murder and revenge unfolds. Twists, turns, and suspense fill the entire stage.

“The Beating Heart” will be presented at HHS’s Jean Downey Theatre on Saturday, April 27th, Sunday, April 28th, and Monday, April 29th at 7:30 p.m. You can purchase your tickets in advance for $3.00 during school on Thursday, Friday, & Monday(April 25th, 26th & 29th). Tickets at the door will be $5.00 for everyone. We can’t wait to see you at the theatre.

Participating in the city-wide yard sale is our very own Harpeth Band of Blue. Be sure to stop by the front of the school building and support the HHS Band by purchasing items from their yard sale on May 4. Happy yard sale jumping!
