What's Happening at HNHS

Virtual Field Trip with Purdue University

VirtualFieldTrip

   An exciting opportunity recently presented itself to our students in the form of a virtual field trip with scientists from Purdue University.  Approximately 130 Huntington North students were given the opportunity to interact with Purdue scientists through video conferencing as the selected live school.  There were schools from all over the world participating in this presentation with HNHS being the only school with which the Purdue scientists interacted with live!
    Can science and technology address issues of climate change and feeding a global population, make living on Mars feasible, and advance human health without creating further problems?  This is one of many questions that were addressed during this hour-long show.


Fort Wayne Children's Zoo Field Trip

   Approximately 350 HNHS Biology students went to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo to study ecological human impact issues in nature.

Superintendent Randy Harris Meets with Seniors

Mr Harris Senior Mtg

   Starting last year, it was my goal to meet with all seniors sometime during their senior year, prior to graduation. First, I do not want the seniors going across the stage during graduation and wondering “who is that guy?” Second, I really enjoy meeting the seniors and getting to know each of them a little bit. During the time I was teaching, I always taught seniors and just like being around them. Finally, I use these meetings to find out from the seniors what they think about HNHS. What do they like about the school? What would they like to change?

   I really try to listen closely to the comments they make and pass those comments back to the appropriate people. We listened to comments about the Wi-Fi in the building last year and made improvements on that during the summer. I have also had many positive comments about teachers and staff members. Those comments get passed back to the teachers. 


Orange Out

   Huntington North students and staff participated in an “orange out” to support fellow student Conner West in his fight against cancer.  The theme for his fight has been “#DubStrong” and the students and staff want Conner to know they are with him each step of the way.  Students and staff wore orange at school on Friday, September 29 and at the football game that evening to support Conner.  This is truly an example of how HNHS is a family!
