RELAY FOR LIFE
Walk at Central City Park
Last Blood Drive for this school year, in the JROTC room.
Sign up will be held in the atrium Monday through Wednesday after Spring Break.
We are having our first ever LitCon: Writing Conference and Competition.
Writers who happen to live in the Macon area are coming in and talking to our students about writing and then coaching them to create a piece for a writing competition.
The authors are Young Adult authors Lauren Morrill and Elizabeth Tammi.
Our poet is Kelly Whiddon, a Creative Writing professor at Middle Georgia.
Gift card prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
The cost is $10, which includes lunch and the sessions. Students need to pay and sign up with Ms. Leslie Smith ahead of time in order to secure a spot for their chosen authors.
There will also be an Open Mic Lunch where students can perform and showcase their talents.
Applications and test scores must be submitted by this date if you plan to participate in Dual Enrollment during the 2019-20 academic year.
If you need assistance with an application, see your counselor for dates when Dual Enrollment representatives from Central Georgia Technical College and Middle Georgia State University will be at HHS.
VOLUNTEERS-TURN IN YOUR HOURS!

THE BOOK SHELF
Dr. Smith toured Meadowcreek High School in Gwinnett County and learned about the #readwoke movement founded by their media specialist, Mrs. Cecily Lewis. Dr. Smith wants every HHS student exercising his or her right to freedom.
Are you WOKE?
'Woke' is increasingly used as a byword for social awareness.
What is a Woke Book?
A Woke Book must:
- Challenge a social norm
- Give voice to the voiceless
- Provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised
- Seek to challenge the status quo
- Have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group
The list below is by no means a comprehensive one, but is a great introduction to some amazing books that will hopefully open eyes up to the experiences of different cultures, races, and religions.
The challenge is to read 3 Woke Books and receive a #readwoke T-shirt.
STILL NEED TO APPLY TO COLLEGE?
The following college representatives will be here to help you:
- 9 - 12 Central GA Technical College
- 9 - 2 Middle GA State University
- 9 - 2 Columbus State University
- 9 - 2 Gordon State College
You will be able to apply to other colleges online, too!
