Home / Announcements / Life on the Hill 5/7/18



Congratulations to our seniors who were notified last Friday that they will receive scholarships from the Haywood County Schools Foundation! Check the announcement boards for that list of students, and give them a high-five when you see them on campus today! Also, Seniors–as you learn of other scholarships you’ll be receiving, swing by the counseling center and give that information to Ms. Dove.


Also, ballots have been tallied from last week’s student art show! Congratulations to the following students on their award-winning art work:

  • ART 1  Brisa Raya
  • ART 2  Trina Lyon
  • ART 4  Leah Sutton


A word about Spring Photos:

9th-11th grade students need to either return their spring portrait packets or pay for the pictures you are keeping. See one of the publications students during either lunch this week in the lobby. Keeping your photos without paying for them will result in you being placed on the obligations list.


If you didn’t pick up your spring pictures last Friday, see Ms. Bates in B2.

The HCC Math Placement Test is TODAY in the Media Center after school. The English Test will be May 16th. Questions? Go see Mr. Johnson in the Counseling Center.

Attendance recovery is underway for students with more than 6 absences. Sign up in the front office for any Tuesday or Thursday in May: 3:15-4:40 to make up for one class absence, or stay until 6:05 for 2 classes. Cost is $5 per afternoon.

Prom Tickets will be given out during Study Hall on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Make sure to pick up yours.
