Student of the Month
Keep up the great work, Jr. Oilers!
HBHS Field Trip
APA Jr. Costume and Set Design class went on a field trip to look at the amazing sets that have been prepared for the APA production of "Noises Off" that debuts this weekend. The set rotates by coming apart and was explained by APA Tech Director, Joe Batte.
Today we celebrated a group of students that met their goals in reading. These students set goals of improving their SRI scores at the beginning of the 3rd quarter. Sixty-five students were rewarded with a Root Beer Float party and earned certificates based on these awesome improvements! Way to go, scholars!
Congrats to Stella Scott, Jake Alvarez, Katie Meehan, and Kimmie Graney. They have been selected by Dick Blick’s Celebrating Art contest to be published in their artwork book consisting of student work from across the US! All students will be published on the Dick Blick website as well as move on to the national round of judging in June. Congratulations Jr Oilers Artists!
