NHS Proudly Announce its Community Service Trip to HAITI!
The HCSS NHS is serving not only our community but the global community. During Spring Break of 2015, students, parents, and teachers of HCSS will be visiting Haiti. The purpose of this trip is to help and support the people in need; with the focus on orphaned children in Haiti. HCSS students will have a chance to know more about other cultures, meet the local people, broaden their horizon, and get a life experiences that are not available to most.
We are going to visit orphanage houses and distribute school materials, clothes, foods, and other supplies they need. We are planning to purchase school materials, toys, and clothes here in the USA. Since, we are not allowed to bring foods to the Haiti, we need to purchase them in Haiti. We are looking for people, companies, and foundations to support us financially. If you have any resources, please let us know.
Please sign this form and return it to Mr. Dere. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and SPACE IS LIMITED!
6th Annual Science Fair
On Saturday, January 31st 2015 HCSS is honored to host its 6th Annual Science Fair. Last semester HCSS students were hard at work creating both experimental and engineering projects suitable to the high standards we have set. High School students were responsible for creating a web page for their projects and Middle School students were asked to create a board. The High School projects will be judged by the science department and awards will be handed out at the Award Ceremony on Saturday. The Middle School Eliminations have already taken place and 45 students have been chosen to present their 30 projects at the Science Fair Finals. The winners will be selected by a panel of guest judges made up of professors, research directors, and PhD candidates from Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Northeastern and UMASS.
The Year of the Wolf
Wolves Wrestling is off and running this season. Despite many setbacks, they continue to drive on and hold strong. When the team lost key players at the 106, 132, 145, 160 and 182 weight classes, the season looked grim. But there was a ray of hope on the horizon in the guise of Shaunari, Nick, Ali, and Brendan. Although holes remained at classes 132, 160, and 182, the Varsity new comers added another dimension to a young but talented group of returning members. Returning starters include Khalil Kasimov, Western Mass Champion Isaiah Garcia, Clutch Omar Velez, Mert Yanbul, Got Bubbles Gabe Johnson, Khalis Kasimov, O2 Voshon Poon, The Iron Man Tylor Paul, Hollywood Alex Sierra, Romelo Funky Cold Madina and Gabe Jr. Joseph Elahi.
