Tallon Regier, a 13 year old seventh grader, has moved back to Hay Springs to live with his dad. He is joining the Jr. High class of seven. His favorite color is gray. He likes farming and ice cream. His older brother, Brett, just graduated from Hay Springs High School. He also has two sisters, one in ninth grade and one in eleventh grade, neither go to school here with him.

Seth Elsea has transferred to Hay Springs High school from Gordon because “this is supposed to be the better school.” He enjoys playing baseball and will play football next year. Seth can play the drums and enjoys country, rap and some metal/ rock music. Next year will be his senior year.

Jacob Greenough is from California and has lived in Oregon, Utah, Alaska and Iowa before coming to Nebraska. He is a 17 year old senior who enjoys DJ-ing , which he did for dances at some of his last schools. He moved to Hay Springs because his dad, who’s in the military, wanted them to be closer to family. Jacob thinks that “Hay Springs is small but it’s cool because you can get to know everyone more than you would in a bigger school.” He has seven siblings, three brothers and four sisters.

As the new school year begins, Hay Springs High School has acquired some new kids, and I got the chance to interview one of them. The person I interviewed was Hailey Summers. Hailey has two sibling’s one older sister, who is a senior named Emily, and a younger sister who is in preschool named Cora. They moved here from Rapid City and were from Washington before that.

Hailey likes how Hay Springs High School is so small. She also likes the four day school week, and how easily it is to join a team or do extracurricular things. Hailey’s favorite class is geography, because she likes the teacher.

She is planning on doing volleyball, basketball, and also track. When not in school, Hailey likes to hang out with friends. Hailey should be a good add-on too both our school, and also our sports teams.

A+With the resignation of Mr. “Murph” Planansky, Hay Springs High School had to find a new math teacher. They hit the jackpot with April Stangle, former HSHS student teacher. She spent the last year teaching in South Dakota, and when asked if she will miss it up there, she said “only the people.”
Ms. Stangle teaches several subjects including Statistics, College Algebra, and Careers/Technology. She previously assisted Coach Jason Badje and Jana Binger in coaching basketball and volleyball. This year she will be assisting Coach Kyli Heiting in volleyball, and taking on the role of head coach for the girls’ basketball team. When asked what her expectations for coaching this year were she said “I want the girls to have fun, learn the fundamentals, and be successful.”
She will also be helping with FCA. A few fun facts about the new HSH teacher: her favorite color is blue, she enjoys drawing and running in her downtime, her favorite food is steak and her alma maters are Sioux County High School and Chadron State College.

Hello!  My name is Brad Bounous, and I am the World Geography teacher in the High School.

I have a class Twitter account, and a class Facebook page. Follow me on Twitter @MrBHSHawks, or on Facebook by searching Mr. Bounous’ Classroom and like it. (I don’t Friend my students on Facebook, this is just a place where I can share stuff about our class.)  I give updates on the class, pictures of what’s going on in class.  (I do NOT post pictures of students, or their work/names.) Reminders to students, interesting articles pertaining to geography, easy access to me (questions about work, class etc.)  I encourage you to follow me.  If you don’t know much about Twitter, or have any questions contact me.  I strongly encourage the kids to follow me, I don’t follow them.  But, it is not mandatory.  If you do not want your child to have Twitter, I totally understand.  Many other school districts are using this technology, and I wanted them to take advantage of this.

I will also have a YouTube channel dedicated to virtual field trips.  I am currently going around the area when I have free time to make education videos for the kids pertaining to geography, and local history.  I hope you watch them and take something from them.  I have had a lot of fun making them,  and since I cannot take my students everywhere to show them these things, I thought I would bring the field trip to them.  I think the kids will enjoy them. it is still under construction so check back often.
