What is Name and Claim? How can it help my student? - Each Tuesday and Friday, from 10:39-11:09 a.m., students use their PLT (Personal Learning Time) for structured study hall activities. During that time, they may travel to a classroom teacher to have extra time to complete work or have tutoring, if they notify their PLT teacher of where they will be. All teachers are encouraged to “claim” students who are failing the class or missing work during this time each week. This is an intervention time that is designed for students to use independently to complete homework, read or study or to schedule one-on-one time with a teacher for more intense help and not wait until a Catch-Up or stay after school for tutoring services. Students are also encouraged to use the other two days a week of PLT time to study as well while remaining in their PLT classroom – in between school-wide lessons on PRIDE and other character lessons that are conducted throughout the year. 

Seniors, please check with your PLT advisor regarding scholarship opportunities that are available. They are listed on the copy of the daily announcements that is emailed to each PLT advisor.
Kenergy Washington Youth Tour (WYT) Each year, Kenergy sends six students on an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C.  The mid-June trip is coordinated through the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives.  Students visit every major monument, cruise the Potomac River, visit the Holocaust Museum, and spend a day at the Smithsonian, tour Capitol Hill, listen to outdoor concerts, and much, much more.   To enter the WHT, students must live in a house powered by Kenergy.  Applications are available at each unit desk at HCHS and due January 15, 2015.
Any 16 or 17 year old applying for a driver’s license permit must get an Application Form from the attendance clerk before going to the Judicial Center to take the test. This form verifies that the student is in good standing with the requirements of the No Pass/No Drive law. 
Homework Help – Before School Tutoring is Monday thru Friday 7:15 a.m. – 7:50 a.m. in Room G201. 
This is a reminder for everyone who parks on the lot behind the tech unit that your vehicle must be moved by 3:45 every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for band rehearsal.
