HHS Principal's Update: Week 20
Thursday, January 19th
Good Evening HHS Students and Families,
As we move through January we are really starting to see the uptick in campus events and activities. Next week we have our Semester 2 Back to School Night, which is a showcase of the mazing things we do at HHS each and everyday. We also have our Winter sports in mid-season with all programs showing success. Tomorrow we are holding our Class of 2023 meeting to discuss all of the senior events culminating in gradation on June 1st. This semester is going to go by very quickly and we want to ensure that all HHS students take advantage of the opportunities offered in and out of the classroom. Keep up the great work Bulldogs!
I wish all of you a great weekend,

A big shoutout to our Choir who performed at this year's Justice Sunday event. It was a very moving performance that lifted the spirts of the crowd. Great way to honor Dr. King's legacy. In addition, HHS want to give a big shoutout to all of our students who performed in this year's Justice Sunday play. Way to go HHS!
