School Committee Canceled for February 9th
Due to the weather forecast the School Committee meeting scheduled for February 9th has been cancelled and rescheduled for February 16th 2017.
Last night we truly witnessed the prudence in “never giving up”….
Today, there should be a message conveyed to our students through this victory…that is never give up coupled with the value of being humble yet determined to succeed…
Last night so many of us thought it was all over…we are all thrilled that we closed our eyes knowing the Patriots won…
So today as we rejoice on the victory, let’s keep Tom Brady’s Mom – Nate Solder’s son Hudson, and so many others in our thoughts and prayers as they face their challenges…
Have a good day as we go forth with a renewed faith and belief in the power of truly believing…
HHS Welcomes Chinese Students and Teachers
The Supervisor of Social Studies for the Haverhill Public Schools, Rashaun Martin, is pleased to welcome 12 students and 2 teachers to Haverhill High School from the Chongqing No. 1 International Studies School in China. They will be with us attending classes and hosted by Haverhill families until Feb. 3rd. In April, 7 HHS students and history teacher, Victoria Pettis will travel to China as part of this new Exchange Program. I thank Superintendent Scully for welcoming the group last Sunday and Principal Beth Kitsos for her support of this opportunity for the students of Haverhill. More information about the school is below:
Chongqing No.1 International Studies School (ISS) is the dedicated international campus of Chongqing No.1 Middle School, founded in 2001. The latter is one of the most prestigious schools in Southwest China, founded in 1931 with over 10,000 students across six large campuses, including primary, middle and secondary schools. Chongqing No.1 ISS was founded to serve students preparing to apply for college in the United States as opposed to participating in the National College Entrance Exam (‘Gaokao’). The exchange proposed herein will be offered to a select group of Grade 10-11 students based on final recruitment details at Haverhill and performance during autumn term. The school is located in Chongqing, one of only four independent municipalities in China along with Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. With a total population of over 30 million people and located at the confluence of two major rivers (Yangtze and Jialing), it is not only one of the most important economic hubs in China but also has a rich cultural history dating back almost 3,000 years. As a major city port, Chongqing saw a period of rapid economic growth in the Ming and Qing dynasties as many merchants based themselves there from all over China. In more recent times, the Kuomintang moved its seat of government from Nanjing to Chongqing during the Second World War, laying the foundations for it to remain the cultural, political and economic centre of Southwest China after the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.
