Welcome to my web page.

I will be posting information on this page regarding the following classes:  English 10, English 11, and ACT Prep.

In English 10, we just finished the first quarter and will be reading stories from some famous authors such as "The Devil and Tom Walker" by Washington Irving, "The Pit and the Pendulum" by Edgara Allan Poe, and "Dr. Heidegger's" Experiment" by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

In English 11, students just finished presenting their "Not Your Typical Book Report."  We  will be starting Shakespeare's play, Macbeth very soon.

In ACT Prep, we spent the first quarter learning about test-taking strategies and preparing for the ACT English and Writing tests.  The students have taken multiple practice ACT tests.  This next quarter we will be working on preparing for the Reading and Science portions of the ACT test.  The ACT test will be given to all high school juniors in Michigan during March of 2010.

The Knowledge Bowl team has already had one match against Onaway in October.  Our next match is against Fairview on November 24th; the team takes on Tawas on December 15th.

The Hale High School Chapter of National Honor Society will induct fourteen new members on November 18, 2009 at six o'clock in the evening in the high school cafetorium.  The chapter has already  raised money for Cystic Fibrosis and helped with the Halloween Parade.

Drama Club this year is gearing all of their effort to presenting a Shakespeare Festival at the high school in late spring.  There will be puppet plays presented of Shakespeare's comedies as well as Medieval games and activities.  Look for more information to come.
