In all respects, it was a great week to be a Hawk. Check out some of the pictures below to see some examples...
It was parent/senior night at the HHS volleyball game on Tuesday. The seniors were honored for the contributions to an outstanding volleyball program. Thank you to those girls for their contributions to HHS over these four years.
The Hawk Band performed in South Austin's Burger Center on Tuesday night at 9:45 PM. Earning a score of "1," they earned a trip to the Area contest. They perform at Vista Ridge on Saturday at 5:00 PM, with the top performing bands going on to the state competition. This is an exceptional group of performers and we're very proud of their efforts. They are in a tough region this year with some incredible bands, but we know their performance will reflect the hard work they've contributed this year. In related fine arts news, the HHS choir is sending 6 students to the pre-area competition, just one step away from state.
The HHS "Hawk Pride" Committee puts on a breakfast once a grading period to honor a few select students for their effort and dedication. Each teacher gets to nominate one student for this honor. It was a well organized event and a cool opportunity to honor a few of our best.
HHS teacher Mr. Mallon working with some robotics students after school. In addition to teaching engineering design and computer maintenance, Mr. Mallon helps guide the school's robotics team. Those students build and program robots to do manage some complex obstacles. The team took 4th place out of 24 schools this past weekend.
The HHS Junior Class sponsored the talent show on Thursday night. There was truly some exceptional talent displayed that night and it was a great fundraiser for the Juniors. It was great to see students from Freshmen-Seniors perform for their peers.
Saturday, HHS hosted the HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) conference. Schools from all over the state were in breakout sessions learning communication and leadership skills that will propel them to success. The talent in that room was impressive. HOSA is one of our fastest growing organizations on campus.
The Hawk Silver Dancers (pictured above) were among the many students that volunteered at Elementary Fall Festivals around Pflugerville on Saturday. Athletes, AVID students, National Honor Society, ROTC, and student council members were also among those helping the little ones this weekend. It was great to see our students representing Hendrickson so well.
