Horton Harmony has had a BUSY week! They started on Monday with the NEK League Music Festival at Oskaloosa where they were able to perform and work with judges in preparation for our upcoming festivals. They then worked their tails off with this new advice for 3 days of rehearsals. On Friday, they had the honor of performing in our community for a local group. Many students participated in the Talent Show that evening as well. We capped our week off this Saturday by being selected to perform The National Anthem at the 2A State Basketball Championship located at Kansas State University's Bramlage Coliseum! Their director, Ms. Victoria McManus, is incredibly proud of these students and the phenomenal work they have put into preparing for these performances. She loves and appreciates each and every one of these kids and is extremely excited to see how much further we will grow!
It's Spring Break, Chargers! Have a great break -- stay safe and we will see you in a week!
Former USD 430 teacher, Wanda Stoltenberg, visited the 6th graders today. She shared videos, pictures, and artifacts from her recent trip to Morocco. The students enjoyed learning about Moroccan culture and trying some traditional foods--couscous and mint tea. Thank you, Wanda!
We had a large group of 5th and 6th grade students qualify for the HONOR party! Great job!
HHS Baseball & Softball: Baseball & Softball Parent Meeting Monday, March 20 @ 6:30pm in the HS Auditorium. Thank you.
How would you like an evening of entertainment and a meal provided my Mrs. Campbell's culinary classes? The HHS Forensics team is in need of judges for the home meet on March 21. There will be a judges training session at 3:30 in Mrs. Campbell's room. The tournament starts at 4 p.m. You do not have to have experience to judge. We are hosting 17 schools. The team needs 30 judges for finals alone more than that for the preliminary rounds. If you can help, please email email@example.com.
The HHS Charger Band rocked at the 2A Boys Tournament Wednesday night! They had an awesome trip and played well. It was great to play in an environment such as Bramlage. Thanks to USD430 for a meal at Pizza Ranch and making all of the transportation arrangements. Also thank you to the Charger Fans for your positive comments about the student's performance quality this BB season. They are a special group of students with amazing musical talent!! Very, very, special thanks to Dennis and Jackie Wenger for purchasing Band Shirts for the HHS band. They looked awesome!!! The process was started as soon as the boys won on Saturday night and the shirts were delivered (Thank You Christie Woods) on Tuesday afternoon.
