For the teacher spotlight this week, we would like to introduce you to Mr. Jeffrey Frye, our new Spanish teacher. Mr. Frye tells us, “I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I went to school out-of-state at Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky. I studied Psychology and Spanish. My first impression of Harpeth High was “wow,” and so was my second. The students are very respectful and the administration and faculty are all so eager to help. I love the relaxed but goal-driven environment. I teach Spanish I and III. My general goal for both of them is to help increase their knowledge and interest of the Spanish language and the different cultures associated with it.” Welcome, Mr. Frye! We are glad to have you on staff!
The Harpeth High School yearbook, The Arrow, offers the parents of seniors the opportunity to publicly recognize their special graduate with a SENIOR AD. This personalized message appears in a special section of The Arrow. Most parents choose to surprise their graduating senior with an AD, and the yearbook staff diligently keeps your special recognition a secret to be unveiled when you honoree opens The Arrow in the spring. SENIOR AD content includes a message and pictures that you submit with the SENIOR AD order form that specifies how you would like the SENIOR AD to be designed. The deadline for SENIOR ADS will be Friday, November 15, 2013. Do not attempt to submit your SENIOR AD through email. If you have any questions, please contact Natalia Fallon at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 952-2811.

Decision making in high school: study smart by using these
techniques: find a good place to study, be organized, focus on one thing at a time, break large assignments down into smaller parts, and do difficult assignments first while you are fresh and alert.
