Corn Classic Marching Band Festival

Tomorrow night marks the return of the 7th annual Corn Classic Marching Band Festival held once again this year at Hampshire High School.  The festival will feature the marching bands from Burlington Central HS, Genoa-Kingston HS, and our very own Hampshire HS Marching Band.  The show will begin at 7:00 with the National Anthem being performed by the HMS 8th grade band.  Admission is $2 per person or a non-perishable canned food item to be donated to the Hampshire/Burlington Food pantry!   We hope you can join us in the Hampshire HS stadium for an evening of music, marching, and pageantry! 



Congratulations to the boys and girls cross country teams for running some excellent times last night at the Genoa-Kingston Invite.  Sophia Oury took first place again with a 43 second lead over the number 2 runner.  Kyle Blake won his first ever race wearing and Whip-Pur uniform with Tommy Croissant close in tow as the boys took first, second, third, fourth and fifth place in the boys open.  Boys varsity took first place with fast times from Max Beer, Darius Nguepi, and Isai Morales.  Reminder to all cross country athletes to wait in the commons after school until one of your coaches arrive.

Teacher of the Quarter

Hey Whips! Every semester, your HHS teachers vote for students that they think should be Student of the Quarter.  Now, it's your turn! You will be receiving an RCS message with a link to nominate the teacher that you think deserves to be Teacher of the Quarter. Once we tally the top (10) nominations, you will have a chance to vote again among the top nominations and also submit a reason as to why you think this teacher deserves to be Teacher of the Quarter. Nominations will be accepted until next Monday, October 2nd. 


Tri-M Meeting
