Students Fare Well in Senior District Competition

   srdistchoruscomp

On Saturday November 8.2014, three of Holston High School's best singers qualified for Senior All-District Chorus.  Over one hundred students from across Southwest Virginia gathered at Fort Chiswell High School for the competition.  HHS students Ashelyn W., Megan B., and Jennifer V. were selected for the honor.  Prior to the competition, all three girls put in many hours of practice and drills to prepare for the competition.

All three girls are upperclassmen and have participated in many choral activities and supporting events.  Holston High School congratulates them and their teacher, Mrs. Spirup, for a job well done and a recognition deservedly earned.  The culminating event for Senior All-District will be held in February at Union High School in Big Stone Gap, Virginia

Multi-School Experiential Education at the Channels

 

On October 24 and 25, students from Patrick Henry HS and Holston HS joined Abingdon HS AT2 on a weekend excursion to the Great Channels of Virginia.  The group arrived on Friday afternoon in time to set up camp, start the fire, and cook dinner before lights out.  On Saturday the multi-school group hiked up to and explored the chasms of the Channels.


 The purpose of the trip was to teach experientially, to connect students to the amazing land in Washington County, and to give students positive school related experiences.  Geology was easy to discuss and teach among the amazing canyons; weather was more than a lecture lesson as a thermal inversion kept us warm at night and produced a river of fog way down below in the valleys around Hayterís Gap; and astronomy was a fun discussion when we carried our símores away from the campfire and looked to the stars. 


Many thanks to Virginia Hollifield, Kim Laws, Marywood Sparks, Eric Hoffman, and Steve Ahn for making the trip a reality.

Holston Carolers Celebrate Christmas

On Saturday, November 8, 2014, five of Holston High School's best singers volunteered to showcase their talent for the community as they sang Christmas Carols at the Damascus Food City.  The shoppers stopped to listen and some even joined in as the HHS students treated the crowd to time-tested favorites such as "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" and "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer".  Student Evan R. dressed as Santa at the store's request and passed out candy to the children in the store as the carolers sang.  The store also had placed decorations and a Christmas tree in the front foyer to support the event.

The students sang from 2:00 to 4:00 and helped Damascus's largest retail establishment kick off the holiday season.  Students who tool part in the event were Laura W., Diane H., Lauren W., Takoda C., and Victoria K.  Student Teacher Nick Dennis led the songs.
