Chieftains for Change Night

The past two years, Chieftains for Change has been a committee to organize a community night of resourceful information in February. This year the committee will be focusing on social media. We are making this a two part event as social media concerns seem to be on the rise. We have Sgt. Scott Frank coming to H-L with his Digital Empowerment program during the day for students in grades 5-12 on Tuesday, Feb. 5th. That same evening we will have Sgt. Frank return for a 2-hour program for parents from 6-8:00 pm; this program will be more blunt and is for adults only.

On January 11, we had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Jim Bisenius and have him present to our 3-12 grade students about strategies to use to take the power back from people who try to bully. Mr. Bisenius discussed real-world applications of his researched based strategies and why they work and how to implement each. An outline of his strategies is available in the main office for all students to use as a review guide.

Office Doors Security Upgrade

When you enter the building through the main office doors, you will notice some new door decals. Although these decals look awesome, they are actually an added security measure to reduce the visibility of visitors into the office without reducing our secretaries ability to see out.

H-L Fishing Club

On Sat. Jan. 12, BGSU fishing club addressed the H-L fishing club. What a great time for all those in attendance. Anglers learned not only a few tricks of the trade at the collegiate level, but they also took part in guided seminar stations to learn casting techniques, knot tying, and reel spooling. All in attendance had the opportunity to get their questions answered from the college anglers. Many parents, friends, and family members were in attendance. Since the weather was cold and snowy outside, the program was scheduled from 1-3 pm and we until 4:30 and really enjoyed the hands on learning and comradery. A casting competition was held and the top 3 winners were - Cole McDonald -(1st) - winner of an ANGLR tracking unit, Layne Spencer -(2nd) - winner of a tackle tray full of plastics, and Emily Reinhart-(3rd)- winner of a tackle tray of lures. All in attendance were given various fishing accessories for attending. Anyone interested in becoming part of the H-L fishing club should email Mr. Daniel (coach/advisor) rdaniel@hlschool.net for more information. More seminars and gatherings to happen soon.
