Graduation Practice is mandatory for all graduates of the Class of 2013 who would like to particpate in the graduation ceremony. Graduation practices are scheduled for June 3 through June 6 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. If all students understand their parts, and all goes well, we will not have to hold practice on Thursday, June 6. Report to the stadium each day for practice. Please be on time to practice each day! Wear sun block, a hat and/or sunglasses, and bring water. Wear comfortable attire and shoes. No heels on the field. Bring a snack if you think you will need it. See you there!
The Graduation Ceremony for the HHS Class of 2013 will take place on Thursday, June 6, at 3:00 p.m in the HHS stadium. If all goes as planned, for the first time in HHS history, the ceremony will be broadcast via the internet by our very own Mr. Peck and the student broadcasting team.
