This month at HHS, students are focused on the idea of diversity. Many different people have been sharing their backgrounds and what makes them fit in with the HHS student body. Every Wednesday in the month of March, students take part in activities based around diversity and acceptance of others for exactly who they are. Each morning a different student does announcements; however, before they do, they all share a bit about themselves, showing how they fit in with all of us as one.

BAHAMAS SENIORS RETURN TO THE STATES After spending spring break in the Bahamas, Biology Club seniors and sponsors returned early Tuesday morning. The trip involved deep sea fishing, snorkeling in various reefs, visiting a bat cave, hiking up to a lighthouse, visiting the remnants of John Watling’s castle, and tide pool investigations. Sponsor Kylee Reschke stated, “We were able to go to several different beaches on the island… so we saw a large variety of fish and sea life. As far as the trip in general, we had a really good trip… the students wanted to do everything that we did.” Senior Jack Tesoriero said, “I actually learned a ton and a lot more than I expected… Yeah, it was sick. It was amazing.” What stays in the Bahamas.
