Houston High School is proud to announce Mike Miller as our next boys basketball coach. He takes over for the retiring Charlie Leonard. During Leonard’s tenure the program went to new heights, including back to back District Championships and last year’s first ever appearance in the TSSAA State Tournament.“Mike’s addition to our Family further solidifies our never ending quest to give our students the most qualified, most successful and balanced mentors to work with on a daily basis. He is elite by any standard.” said Chad Becker, Germantown Municipal School District Director of Athletics.
As a result of the school closures this spring, the annual Junior ACT testing date, which would have served as the first of two free testing opportunities for the Class of 2021, was cancelled. Nevertheless, GMSD, in conjunction with the state of Tennessee, is committed in ensuring these rising seniors will still have two opportunities to receive free testing.
On Tuesday September 22, all Seniors at HHS will take the ACT during the school day at no cost. This is a new, earlier date requested by the state of Tennessee to aid Seniors in testing twice during the first semester. This date is open only to members of the Class of 2021, and those students will be registered by HHS at the beginning of the school year.
A second opportunity for our rising Seniors will come on the Saturday December 12, national testing date. GMSD will supply each member of the Class of 2021 a registration voucher that will cover the cost of testing. These vouchers will be made available to students this fall with additional information on its use for registration. While other HHS students are allowed to register and test on this date, only members of the Senior class will receive vouchers.
Though ACT is still holding registration for summer testing opportunities in June and July, out of an abundance of caution and in line with the guidance from the state of Tennessee, Houston High School will not open as a testing site for either of these dates. GMSD has determined that the most prudent action at this time is to keep our buildings closed for the safety of our students, staff, and their families.
We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy and find opportunities to enjoy your time together this summer!
