Students in Mrs. Luttrell's English II classes recently visited the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center in Cincinnati, OH. Sponsored by HHS GEAR-UP, the trip began by visiting Northern Kentucky University.
Mrs. Luttrell's students have been studying Man's Inhumanity to Man through learning about the events and causes that led to the Holocaust. Visiting the museum allowed the students to experience stories of "courage, perseverance, loss, redemption...told by Holocaust survivors." Students explored characteristic strengths needed to become upstanders to injustice.
Visiting the museum humanizes the horrific event of the Holocaust for students, and they will now be able to make connections to the events and atrocities of the Holocaust when reading Nobel prize winner Eli Wiesel's memoir Night.
This past week, the SKMA All-Festival Choir Festival was held in Corbin, KY. Congratulations to Ethan Farley, Jacob Baker, and Connor Witt.

The guest conductor was Daniel Wesley. Mr. Wesley is the Director of Choirs at Lexington Christian Academy and the Artistic Director of the acclaimed Lexington Singers Children’’s Choir. This is Ms. Schraeder’s 51st year accompanying the SATB choir! 🎶🎶🐉
From the "Family of Dragons" we want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day. Of the many things to be grateful for today, we are especially thankful for our wonderful Green Dragon school community. Without our dedicated students and staff, the magic would not be possible!
🎶 Earlier this week, eight Green Dragons tried out for the SKMA All Festival honors band, and we are proud to say that all eight students made it! They traveled to Williamsburg High School and the University of the Cumberlands for three days of rehearsal and then performed in a concert last night. Congratulations! 🐉
🏀 Last Thursday, several of our Green Dragons were invited to WYMT to be interviewed for the DQ Roundball Preview. We are excited to see these Green Dragons and their teammates on the court this season! Go Big Green! 🐉

🐉 HHS 9th graders attended the 4H “Reality Store” and experienced an eye-opening simulation of a month as an adult. Students were assigned salaries based on current GPAs and then had to use their projected monthly income to pay for housing, vehicles, childcare, utilities, and other bills, with the goal of ending the month debt-free. Thank you to 4H and the community volunteers who hosted this event!
🇺🇸 Ms. Maggard's 9th-grade Civics classes recently embarked on an enrichment trip to downtown Harlan with the help and leadership of our GEAR Up team!
As part of their educational journey, our students had the incredible opportunity to visit our local courthouse and gain firsthand knowledge about the roles and responsibilities of the elected and appointed offices in Harlan County.
By witnessing our courthouse's inner workings, they could better comprehend the importance and significance of the various positions that shape our community!
🦃🦃🦃 The cafeteria will be serving a Thanksgiving meal today!

Be sure to tell them which grade to record the donation!

Mr. Owens's health classes are studying the physical activity and nutrition unit. They previously learned about the F.I.T.T. Principle and its 5 main components: muscular endurance, muscular strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, and body composition. They also reviewed how to make a workout/activity program. In the photos below, the students made their own workouts; they made the workouts in their group assignments of 3-5 kids. The learning goal of this lesson was to ensure that students have the skills to create and perform a program that will benefit their health. #healthyforlife
