HHS Students of the Month

Zamir Edwards - 9th Grade

In a time of teachers bending over backwards to engage their students, Zamir Edwards always participates in every lesson. He knows how to take space and make space for others. It is common for Zamir to say, "to add to what so-and-so was saying..." Knowing his kind, effortless, gregarious nature, he was paired with a shy classmate as his book club partner. Zamir worked tirelessly each day to better engage this young man and help bring him out of his shell. Zamir’s written work is always sophisticated and detailed. I am grateful to have this wonderful young man in my class.

Shakira Negron - 9th Grade

Shakira Negron has not only been working hard and earning very high grades, but she takes pride in her work and always completes it to the best of her ability. She is a wonderfully kind, pleasant, and outgoing young lady, who always greets her teachers whether it's in person or on Zoom. She brightens her classes, as she's always willing to participate, and she's been very understanding with her teachers when they've made mistakes. She is very mature, kind, and an absolute pleasure to have in class.

HPS Fine Arts

The HPS Fine Arts Department is happy to present the annual HPS Calendar Recognition Ceremony which recognizes student artwork that is showcased in our district calendar. Congratulations to all our students and their teachers.
