Back home. Conference match. And King of the Court. It's a big night for HHS Volleyball 🐯 🏐
Students in Ms. Lindsey Vermillion's high school science class had a blast participating in a "Whodunnit?" activity on Wednesday. In the murder mystery game similar to Clue, students had to answer 10 multiple choice questions about the life cycle of stars to get the right clues. But they could only answer when they found the questions that were hidden around the room.

The City of Houston informed the district Monday morning that due to road work this week on First Street, access to Pine Street may be limited for parent drop-off and pick-up on campus. Access back to First Street for exiting parents at all district buildings may also be limited or unavailable. To access Pine St., parents may need to travel from Spruce Street to Walnut Street and through the high school parking lot beneath Hiett Gymnasium. We ask that drivers be cautious and aware of students and vehicles in this area and take your time traveling through the lot. For vehicles leaving the district, we suggest avoiding routes toward First Street as much as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: Love sincerely. Hate evil. Hold on to what is good.

Houston R-1 Bands participated last weekend in a clinic/workshop at the Palen Marching Xhibition in Nixa. Mr. Van Dielen said his students got to rub shoulders with some outstanding educators and go through the process of traveling and performing. "All of us - staff and students - learned or were reminded of things that will help us as we gear up for the competitive season," he said. The band performed twice and received almost an hour of feedback from its clinicians. The band's first competition is Oct. 8 in Warsaw.
