HCHS Academic Team Places Second at National Competition
(Henderson, KY)- The Henderson County High School Academic Team finished second in their first trip to the National Academic Championship in Chicago, Illinois. The competition was held from Monday, June 8 through Wednesday, June 10, 2015. Team members Jack Hardy (12), Lance Gibson (12), Isaac Oettle (10), Will Hardy (10), Austin Meredith (10), Zachary Beickman (9), and Cole Privette (9) posted a 7-3 overall record qualifying for the championship match on the final day of the competition. In the preliminary matches, HCHS defeated Berrien Springs (Michigan), John Carroll (Alabama), University (Indiana), and Lakewood B (Ohio) and lost to St. John’s (Massachusetts) and Spearfish (South Dakota), posting a 4-2 record which qualified them for a seventh place seed for the single elimination bracket on the final day of the competition. On the final day of the competition, HCHS began by defeating 10-seed John Cooper (Texan) with a final score of 305-240. In their second match they beat number 2-seed Houston (Tennessee) 335-290. In the following match against 6-seed Lakewood A. (Ohio), HCHS was down by 10 going into the final question worth 20 points. Jack Hardy successfully answered it giving them a 10 point victory, 245-235. In the championship match HCHS was in a tie with Bishop Kelly (Oklahoma) after both the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the match before Kelly pulled away at the end winning by the equivalent of three questions. Henderson’s team was also awarded Rookie of the Year honors by the National Academic Championship for being the highest placing team new to the competition. The HCHS team was coached by assistant coach Sarah Hardy

Orientation –
Monday August 3, 2015 Blue Unit Freshman Orientation 5:30 – 8:00
Tuesday August 4, 2015 Green Unit Freshman Orientation 5:30 – 8:00
Thursday August 6, 2015 Red Unit Freshman Orientation 5:30 – 8:00
What to expect at orientation?
Each Student’s PLT (Personal Learning Time) Teacher will be making calls to the student’s home to explain orientation. The evening will begin in the Cafeteria. It is a good idea for both parents and students to attend. PLT (Personal Learning Time) Teacher, principals, counselors, SAM’s, and office staff will be available to assist families in paying fees, completing and turning in back to school paperwork, as well as pick up student schedules. In order to help families save time, the paperwork that is needed is available for parents on the district web site. Click here for forms! Many parents like to print those out and fill them out at home. 
There will be a rotation that will allow families to turn in paperwork and pay book fees. Once the paperwork is received and book fees are paid, the unit secretary will give parents a ticket to bring to the PLT Teacher. The teacher will collect the ticket, give out the student’s schedule, and try to answer any questions families might have. The ticket will be used to enter student’s name in a drawing that will be held on the first day of school for some great prizes.
We encourage all families to come to freshmen orientation because HCHS faculty and staff try to do a good job of preparing all freshmen students and parents for the first days of school during this orientation. However, if a family cannot make it to orientation on the designated night, counselors will make sure to take care of each student’s schedule on the first day of school.
