Bell Schedule for this Friday 2/18/2022
Did you miss the Bridge Academy Virtual meeting last night? No worries. Here is the recording. https://youtu.be/Q3lGpvGbCfg
WINTER CARNIVAL It's February, two weeks to go until the winter vacation. Hermon High School traditionally celebrates Winter Carnival in the week before vacation. With input from the student body, Student Council has (again) chosen a "This or That" theme for the week, with options for dress-up for each day that reflect opposites. (Check out the flier.) Winter Carnival also means class royalty and class banners. (Listen for announcements.) Students should also look for trivia questions each day tied to that day's theme. Trivia questions will arrive in student e-mails via Google forms. While we can't hold a school-wide assembly, we can have an activities period on Friday, with a wide variety of games and activities. A list of activities will be posted in time for students to sign up for their favorites. It's better than what we had in 2022, and still leaves room to improve and expand to reach the heights of our last real Winter Carnival, back in pre-pandemic times.

HHS JROTC Cadets working on the program for their Sphero Bolt Robots to navigate a maze. The Cadets are tasked with building a program that will enable their robots to navigate the maze while hitting ten check points placed throughout the maze. The robots must also announce (voice commands) each movement before it executes the programmed movement. This class is part of the new STEM initiatives JROTC is incorporating into our curriculum.
We hope you all had a happy and healthy holiday break. As the Wednesday before break was canceled because of bad weather (and a Gold Day), tomorrow will be a Gold Day. We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
Hermon High School students enjoyed spending time with local children on Saturday, December 18, at the annual Holiday Community Party. More than 70 youngsters worked on crafts, played games in the gym, decorated cookies, won cupcakes in a cake walk and broke a pinata, all assisted by about 40 high school volunteers. Santa made an appearance to read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and then read messages the children had written to him. This was a return to an annual tradition interrupted by the pandemic, and both groups turned out in force. The High School Student Leaders extend thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this event possible, whether participating in person or in the planning stages. Happy Holidays to all.
The Hermon High School chapter of the National Honor Society recently made holiday cards to deliver to a local nursing home.
