|HCES Assembly Celebrates our 75th Birthday|
The Student Council organized a rousing assembly to commemorate the HCES 75th anniversary. Students presented on the school's history, famous alumni, we sang our school song, and student & teacher teams competed to answer the most questions about our school. It was a wonderful celebration of our past and present.
Thanks to all the Student Council members and Ms. Roy for making today a special celebration.
|HCHS Robotics wins NYC Regional FIRST Competition!|
THE HCHS FIRST robotics team, 3419 won the New York City Regional 2017 Competition over the first weekend of the vacation at the Armory Track and Field Center. With a full complement of hard-working robot scouts in the stands, and a superb pit team supporting the student Drive Team members, HCHS entered the Alliance Selection in the #2 spot but we were quickly tapped to join the top ranking team, Australia's Barker Redbacks (Team 4613) and with our 3rd partner (5891), Urban Assembly for Global Commerce, our robot alliance grabbed gears, shot balls of fuel into the engine, played defense, and hoisted ourselves up the tower.
In the two nail-biting final matches, we won against the a robot alliance comprised of the excellent teams from Stuyvesant, Manhattan Center for Science and Math and John Dewey HS.
HCHS travels to St. Louis later this month for the World Championships. Wish the team good luck!
