Makerspace 'Making' it Work

It’s that time during the school year when high school seniors are faced with the daunting inevitability of “adulting.”

Henry County High School English and Life 101 teacher Jerilyn Vaught worked with Media Specialist Librarian Rachel Burgin to create a project-based learning unit that would help students recognize and develop some of the skills they’ll need in the next phase of their lives.

“The whole process allowed students to practice not only technology and literacy skills through research and reflection, but also real-world skills of breaking down complicated tasks into simple steps, setting deadlines, and figuring out how to prioritize,” Burgin said.

BackpackFullofCashLogo FREE Screening

Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) will host a FREE screening of “Backpack Full of Cash” on March 26 at 6 p.m. in the Henry County High School auditorium.

This feature-length documentary, narrated by Matt Damon, explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children. Filmed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Nashville and other cities, “Backpack Full of Cash” takes viewers through the tumultuous 2013-14 school year, exposing the world of corporate-driven education “reform” where public education – starved of resources – hangs in the balance.

“This is a very timely film due to the current reading of House Bill 205 regarding school scholarships and tax credits,” said HCPS Superintendent Terry Price. “This film truly brings to light what this can do to public education.  I urge you – educators, parents, students and community members – to make time to view this film.”

WestPoint West Point visits HCHS

Cadets and professors from the United States Military Academy arranged a visit to Henry County High School today to share their love of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with our students. Major David Harness, a former teacher at HCHS and current assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at West Point, made the visit possible.

Harness spent his day in Adam Knust's classroom teaching a math lesson, West Point style.

Other instructors and cadets worked with a group of students in the library on a series of hands-on projects focused on electricity, coding and building various types of circuits.

The group spent their lunch with our Junior Air Force ROTC cadets, sharing their experiences of West Point with them.

We appreciate their time and efforts to provide an enriched learning experience for our students! For more photos, please visit the district's Facebook page or click the Facebook link below.
