On Tuesday of last week, Ryan Philipp’s classes presented “Live! It’s Saturday night!” Harpeth style. The students put together two great performances that included the traditional monologue, weekend update, musical guests, and regular skits, all based around current event topics that they had been discussing in the classroom. Since this is a Modern History class, several current event topics were covered. Thanks, students! You did a wonderful job!
Save the date: March 1, 2014. Why? It’s time for . . .wait for it. . . Cabin Fever 2014!! The HHS Band of Blue boosters will be hosting the 11th Annual Cabin Fever here at Harpeth High.
