Two Wolves Are Qualified for States!
It has been an up and down season for the wolves this year. “But adversity in the end made us stronger” says Coach Smith.
The wolves ended the season with a record of 11-6 and finished 11th as a team at the Western Mass Championships. Isaiah Garcia made history by becoming the second wrestler in hcss history to bring home a western Mass Championship tile. Omar Velez had a great tournament taking 2nd place and Mert Yanbul wrestled back against the odds and took 3rd place. Both Mert and Omar qualified for the state championships in Fox borough.
2nd Quarter Academic Awards Ceremony
Congratulations to all of the students who were recognized in our 2nd quarter academic awards ceremony! All students with honor roll or high honor roll for second quarter received a certificate and were entered into a drawing for a gift card and a Kindle. Also, the new National Honor Society students were announced. Congratulations to Ayumi Castillo and Nicholas Discawicz for winning the Kindles and all of their hard work this quarter! Keep up all the great work! Let's top 3rd quarter with even more honor students.
HCSS Winter Break Camps
During our February winter break, students took active participation in our four academic enrichment camps. These camps were very successful! Students enjoyed a relaxed yet educational camp focusing on topics like Algebra, AP Chemistry, Science Olympiad and Folk Dance.
Black History Month
Black History month is celebrated to honor those in the past who have fought for equality and social justice and to ensure that people are judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" to quote Martin Luther King Jr. While we have made great strides towards equality and a socially just society, we would like to challenge all members of our small HCSS community to apply this concept to their lives.
Judge by the quality of a person, by their honor, integrity and goodness, and do not, as they say, judge a book by its cover. Be inspired each day to live your lives treating people the way you would want to be treated and never shy away from fighting for what is right.
