Together and with Tiger Pride, accomplishing common goals for the common good of our community.
Student CouncilStudent Council is comprised of Student Council officers, at-large members, and Freshmen through Senior class officers. Together, they actively participate in monthly meetings with Mr Scanlon, Mr Mango, and other district and building administrators, discussing topics as broad-ranging as dress code, classroom technology, and school safety.By maintaining this ongoing conversation, students of HHS can be assured that they have a voice in school policy and that this voice is both heard and respected. Student Council members also meet regularly with students from our middle and elementary schools, inspiring and guiding the leaders of tomorrow, today.
