Cupcake Wars Cupcake Wars

Students in Mrs. Perkins’ Foods and Nutrition class participated in a Cupcake Wars competition. Students worked in groups to create a display for their chosen theme. Their cupcakes reflected their chosen theme and were judged by three faculty members in categories such as taste, texture, and overall execution of their theme. Displays included a cozy Campfire, Monet’s Starry Night, Lumberjack, and a round of Pool. The overall winner was the Campfire display, but each group’s cupcakes were equally delicious! The winning group will receive a pizza party.

With February being Library Lovers’ Month, it is the perfect time for local students to celebrate reading with I Love to Read Week.  This annual event was held at the high school this week and included a variety of activities related to reading promotion.  From dress-up days to a poetry contest, from a week-long library scavenger hunt to a photo display, each literary-themed activity was a fun opportunity for students to not only celebrate reading, but also to earn the chance to win monetary prizes generously sponsored by the Hickman County Arts Council. 

 As part of the week’s events, students were challenged to create a found poem by using a black-out technique.  Here, students take a copy of a random page of text and create a “found” poem by isolating certain words in a particular order to create a new idea or unique sentiment.  The top 20 entries were put on display in the library, and the entire student body was asked to vote for their favorite.  Prizes were awarded as follows: 1st place Latosha Hurt, 2nd place Allison Pettit, 3rd place Brandi Hornback.

Lt. Governor Visits HCHS

On a mission to recruit young entrepreneurs, Kentucky Lieutenant Governor Jenean Hampton visited HCHS on Tuesday speaking to dual credit students as well as those currently enrolled in the Clinton-Hickman County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program. Hampton is spearheading the effort to promote a budding scholarship program aimed at inspiring young people to generate ideas for new start-up businesses. During her visit, students learned the basic guidelines for competing in the Lieutenant Governor’s Entrepreneurship Challenge and Hampton encouraged students to participate by submitting innovative ideas for new products and services. Hampton asserted that young people “bring a fresh set of eyes” to current issues which can help spawn new business ventures.

Along with promoting this unique opportunity, Hampton, who grew up impoverished in an inner-city single-parent home, shared some of her background with the students and encouraged them not to underestimate themselves. Being one of the first in her family to go to college, Hampton stated, “If anyone had told me back then that I would be serving today as a Lieutenant Governor, I would not have believed them.” Using herself as an example, to her young audience, Hampton stressed, “You can do more than you think you can. You really can.”

The Lieutenant Governor’s Entrepreneurship Challenge is open to any Kentucky youth in grades 9-12, and the deadline to submit the Intent to Compete is February 1. For more information, visit www.kylgec.com.

It is with great pleasure that our school announces the ability to provide a breakfast and lunch each day at no charge to students. We have added new meal choices based on student preference, and anticipate options to be of greater quality than ever before. We are also excited to announce that we will begin a grab and go breakfast program in hopes to make breakfast more accessible to each student before beginning their day of learning. We look forward to an opportunity to ensure that no kid will ever go hungry at Hickman County Schools.
