Hamilton is on the Agenda

In less than two weeks, 100 Scottsburg High School students will travel to Chicago to see the Broadway production of Hamilton: An American Musical. SHS was selected by the Gilder Lehrman Institute to participate in the Hamilton Education Program after Drama Club sponsors Sara Denhart and Robert Deirth applied for the opportunity about one year ago after seeing the program available in New York. Through the partnership between Gilder Lehrman Institute, local donors, and Hamilton, schools selected for the Hamilton Education Program have the opportunity to see the show for only $10 per ticket. The students attending the trip had to complete the program curriculum and a performance-based project on the Founding Era.

After being selected by the Gilder Lehrman Institute and having the trip approved by the Scott County School District 2 Board of Education, each set of teachers and staff members — Deirth, Denhart, Jason Bagwell, Julie Wells, Tiarra English, and Whittney Shafer — were able to work with students on learning about the project and using the program's associated curriculum. The students were required to create an original, performance-based project on the Founding Era using primary sources. The project could be no more than two minutes in length and have no more than three people in a group. The written form of the projects were submitted to the Gilder Lehrman Institute as per the Institute's guidelines and on the Institute's deadline schedule.

Out of the projects submitted, the project by SHS senior Megan Johnson and her sister, SHS freshman Jordyn Johnson was selected. The project about the Boston Tea Party will be performed on the Privatebank Theatre stage during their visit on Dec. 13.

FFA Competes in Entomology and Forestry Judging Contest

Not many people can go for a walk and pick up a leaf and be able to decide what kind of tree it came from, or be able to identify the bug that just landed on them.

Three of the Scottsburg FFA members are able to do just that. Kyle Burns, Isaac Hall, and Malachi Satchwill recently competed in the Entomology and Forestry Judging Contest this past Tuesday.

During this competition, the three of them each had to take a 50 question quiz over facts involving forestry. Next, the team had to walk amongst tables and identify leaves, seeds, and various types of wood.

These boys were able to place 12th out of 23 teams at the competition.

8th Graders Learn about SHS

SHS was excited to host 8th graders and their families this last Wednesday for a Spaghetti Supper. The Class of 2022 got to meet teachers, learn more about our program offerings, and got tips on filling out the freshman course selection sheet. SHS counselors will go to the middle school next week to sit down individually with each 8th grader and plan for freshman courses.
