Welcome to the Class of 2020!

I hope everyone had a GREAT summer! I look forward to getting to know all of you, and I am excited about the upcoming school year. This site will be used to keep students and parents updated on what's happening in class. I will add a new post (plan for week, resources, etc.) before the start of of each school week. If you (students, parents, etc.) would like to receive notification when posts are added, select Posts (Atom) below and provide your information. Thanks!

Here are some tidbits to get you started . . .

1. is a useful site that provides links to the web pages of HHS teachers who teach freshmen. Not all teachers have web pages, but this provides a convenient way to access all of the sites that are available. The teacher sites should be updated by September 1st.

2. I am one of the advisers for the HHS Outdoor Club. CLICK HERE to see our Facebook Page. We meet at noon every Friday (starting after Labor Day).

NOTE: Check out other "Important Links", which will always be available on the right side of this webpage.
