News From High School Principal

Merry Christmas to you all!  It was just a few short months ago; we were welcoming our students back to Hershey Public School.  We have had a great start to the school year with rigorous learning going on in the classrooms and many individual and team activities having successful seasons.  As we continue the school year, I would like to remind everyone that our semester is nearing an end.  On December 21st we will break for the holiday and the semester will be complete.  Students are reminded that their grades will be final for the semester.  I encourage parents to take an active part in checking a student’s grades with them to track their progress.  This can be done through Powerschool which all students have access to.  Parents can also download the mobile app for Powerschool.  If parents need help getting into Powerschool to see their child’s grades you can call the high school office for help.  Thank you for being an active participant in your child’s education. 

            Our National Honor Society is hosting a blood drive on December 3rd at the Hershey West Gym from noon to 5 pm.  If you are interested in donating blood, please call the school and we can get you signed up.  National Honor Society member Morgan Guernsey is the chairperson for this event.  Walk-ins are welcome the day of the blood drive. 

            The Hershey Student Council is sponsoring a food drive for the food pantry in Sutherland which serves our area.  Our school goal is to reach 2,500 points and the last day to donate is December 11th.  Each donated item counts as a point and each dollar donated counts as 2 points.  If our goal is met we will release school on December 21st at 1:30pm. 

            I also wanted to mention the recent success our one-act play has had under the direction of Mr. Tyler Cronin and Mr. Ian Nelson.  Soda Pop, our one-act play was awarded SPVA conference runner-up on November 19th.  They also competed in Class C-1 districts on November 27 in Bridgeport and were awarded the district championship.  They will compete in Norfolk at the Johnny Carson Theatre on December 6th at 4:30 pm. 

I appreciate your support for our school and truly believe that we have the best group of educators in the area.  We are very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and caring staff.  I am blessed every day that I come to school to be a part of so many dedicated educator’s careers.  Please remind your children how lucky they are to be a part of the Hershey School system. 

As always, remember that our teachers are available before and after school to meet with parents concerning their children.  A phone call, e-mail, or parent meeting are options that are available.   Parent involvement in education is a key factor in a child’s success.  Thanks for all that you do.  Happy Holidays!
