HHS Space Cadets Present at Purdue University!
Hobart High School freshman and team member, Emma Duggan has found a great passion - engineering and television! She and other team members: Jerry Fuller, Ben Molchan, Olivia Garcia and CJ Rodrick, took a trip down to West Lafayette and enjoyed the opportunity. See what Emma had to say about the experience at Purdue University that her and the team had.
"Our team, the Space Cadets (made up of 4 HHS students and 1 HMS student) presented at Purdue West Lafayette on CAD (Autodesk Inventor that our teammates have learned at Hobart High School) and 3D printing techniques that assist with competitions.
The Purdue FIRST forums are an all-day opportunity for teams to learn from one another about programming, building, fund raising and engineering notebooks. Over 500 individuals were in attendance.
We are grateful for the skills we learn in PLTW and Radio TV at HHS! THANK YOU!"
Their journey to Purdue was an eye opening experience and they brought back some great knowledge that will help and encourage our Brickies to grow! Check out their video below videoed by the collaboration of the team and edited by Jerry! Way to go, Space Cadets!
JROTC Represented at the Raider Biathon!
Congratulations JROTC Raider Biathlon teams! Over a dozen biathlon teams met at Marion HS on Saturday September 29 to compete in a run and shoot biathlon. Teams were comprised of 2 people who each had to run 4 kilometers and shoot 15 times from a standing position at 1 inch targets. Each miss added 200 meters to their run total. So, if a competitor shot a perfect 15 (no one did) they would run 4 kilometers (2.5 miles). If they missed every shot, they would have to run 7 kilometers (4.3 miles). Team member times were added together and scored in three competition categories – men, women and co-ed.
Ares Marks and Darrin Johnson earned 3rd and Jay Murphy and Nathan Wright earned 2nd in the men's division. Trinity Salinas and Victoria Wehmeyer won the women's division. Brittany Burger and Gage Nush earned 2nd and Justice Greenleaf and Noah Payne won the co-ed division!
Also, Nathan Wright was the fastest overall man followed by Gage Nush and Noah Payne (top 3!) AND justice Greenleaf was the fastest woman followed by Trinity Salinas (top 2!). Justice beat all but 7 men in the competition! It was an amazing day!

Nurse's Corner for Novemeber
Flu - Don’t Waste Fall By Being Sick. Get A Flu Shot! It’s Super Quick! Don’t forget to get your flu shot and stay protected. Contact your healthcare provider or make an appointment at our Brickie Clinic 219-945-9383.
Vaccinations - All students are required to have up to date immunizations- Letters will be going home November 1st for student that are not up to date on their shots! Make sure you send the records to the school nurse so we can update our records.
Health Conditions - If your student has a specific health condition or needs special care during the school day such as medication, treatments, or monitoring, please inform your school nurse and provide your nurse with a care plan. Individual health care plans help keep your student safe and healthy.
Sick students - Please keep all sick children home from school- this includes fever greater than 100 degrees, vomiting or diarrhea. If you are unsure please call your healthcare provider or school nurse for advice.
Head Lice - It’s that time of year where our students break out their coats, scarves and hats. Please encourage your child not to share such items as hats, scarves, brushes or any personal items. Lice is not a danger to your child’s health, it is simply an annoying problem that comes around this time of year, so no need to panic. Please know that anyone and everyone can get lice. Getting lice has nothing to do with you being clean or dirty, it only has to do with the fact that you are human. It is very important to check your family for lice this time of year regularly. If you find any live lice or eggs, it is absolutely necessary to treat each “infected” person, but more importantly, you must notify the school so that we can effectively and confidentially assist you with monitoring. The school nurse can assist you with proper treatment options as well as identify and demonstrate for you what to do.
Clothing - Please make sure your student has an extra change of clothing in his/her backpack incase needed for unseen circumstances that may arise during the school day.
If you have any questions, please call your school nurse or visit our school web page at: http://www.hobart.k12.in.us/healthservices for more information on student health, school forms, and other helpful links
