This is "Unfinished;" Week at HHS!  This week was organized by students Isabelle Hill and Bryce McDaniel to remind students that there are good things in their lives, a bright future ahead and that their story is not over.  They borrowed elements from "Project Semiclon" which is a suicide prevention initiative.  "A semicolon is used when an author could've ended a sentence but chose not to.  You are the author and the sentence is your life."  The students have planned themes and events for each day.  Students are encouraged to take to Twitter this week @yourHHS411 or use #HHSunfinished to share experiences.  Parents, Please feel free to call our school counselors to discuss any concerns that may arise and to use them as a resource if you child is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts.
HHS will host and "Out of the Darkness Walk" on Saturday, March 24th.  Registration is at 8:00 am and the event begins at 9:00 am and will end at 10:00 am.  Donations will be accepted for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.  The students have raised over $1,000 and have a goal of reaching $2,000.  The walk will take place on campus and will last
