We hope you'll join us for the middle school production of High School Musical Jr. on Friday, March 29th at 6:30pm and Saturday, March 30th at 2pm at the Hilton Head Preparatory School Main Street Theatre!

Like Romeo and Juliet, High School Musical is the story of two teenagers from different worlds wanting to go against the status quo despite their friends objections. Troy, basketball captain and resident star, and Gabriella, East High's newest math whiz, have to balance their new found love of singing with their obligations to their cliques. The entire school descends into chaos when these two students audition for the school musical. If they realize they are all in this together, they may just be able to break free!

*Admission is FREE*

... about Third Quarter Middle School Honor Roll

Last winter, Prep's sixth grade students worked in teams under the direction of Prep middle school science teacher Sarah Benedik to create a solution to help combat pollution in global waterways for the 2018-19 National Geographic GeoChallenge. All five projects were submitted in early January and in mid-February we were informed that three of our teams had progressed on to the regional competition in Jacksonville, FL being held on March 29, 2019!

The GeoChallenge is a project-based competition that empowers student teams in grades 5-8 to address a critical issue and change the planet, just like National Geographic Explorers. Student teams create and present real-world solutions to real-world problems. Students gain skills in research and storytelling, collaboration, videography, innovative design, and mapmaking. This year's competition challenged students across the country to learn about and take action on the urgent issue of single-use plastic pollution in our waterways. This year's theme connects to National Geographic's multiyear effort Planet or Plastic?--which is raising awareness about the global plastic trash crisis.


*The Plastic Police: (team members) Agnes Gross, Lila Ferne, Luke Eanes, and Tommy Fernandez

- This team focused on "Trash Island" located in the Maldives Islands in the Indian Ocean. They have created a net solution to contain the trash that's being dumped on this island from neighboring resorts.

* The Sea Savers (team members) AJ Franseen, Anders Askeland, Izzy Bauer, Elise Sullivan, and Shelby Kline

- This team is looking to re-purpose used straws collected from area Hilton Head restaurants and create mats that can be used in people's homes. By doing this it will help prevent plastic straws from entering the waterways around Hilton Head.

* 84.3 The River (team members) Colin Paris, John Platt, Bella Johnson and Kat Eberly

- This team has focused their solution on the Ohio River. They have designed and created a prototype for a turbine that would be placed in various locations along the river underwater and would gather plastic pollution as it spins.


The three Hilton Head Prep teams will advance to the Florida regional GeoChallenge competition where they will be competing against other teams in the region.
First-place teams from the 16 regional GeoChallenge competitions will receive a $1,000 cash prize and support for the team members and their coaches to travel to the national competition in Washington, D.C., on May 19-22, 2019. The winning team of the national competition receives a $25,000 team prize plus support and guidance from National Geographic staff to implement their GeoChallenge solution. Learn more at In addition to the GeoChallenge, National Geographic Society offers classroom resources, student experiences, and professional development opportunities for educators.

We want to congratulate our students and also wish them luck as they travel next week to compete!

... about HHP Middle School Students Advance to the National Geographic GeoChallenge Competition!
On Wednesday, March 27th, HHP will be hosting a College Admissions Panel in the Lower School Commons. The program will begin at 6:30 pm and will host a variety of College Admissions Officers to talk about the college admissions process. Students grades 9-12 and their families are encouraged to attend to learn more about college admissions and trends in undergraduate admissions throughout the country. We anticipate the program should last about an hour. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A session after the panel discussion.

Come out to Prep and join us for our 1st Annual Night for the Cure event on March 22nd, 2019! From 5 - 9 pm we will be on the football/soccer field area celebrating and raising money for all of those who are battling or have battled cancer! The idea is for each team to have someone walking the "track" at all times to represent the fight against cancer.

Also, during this evening Hilton Head Prep invites you to remember a loved one who has lost his/her battle to cancer or to honor a loved one who has fought the battle of cancer. As part of the event, a walkway through the parking lots and fields will be lined with luminaries. Each luminary bag will feature a name in memory of a loved one or in honor of a survivor and will be decorated by students. Luminaries will be available for purchase during middle & upper school lunches March 12th – 22nd in the Dining Hall area and also online COMING SOON!
Luminaries are $5 per bag.

Come on out, create memories, raise some money for a good cause, and
have a lot of fun!! Please remember, profits will benefit those impacted by
cancer and designated cures.
