Today was our first official HOT (Higher Order Thinking) day, run by Fran, our Library Media Specialist, and the HSC Future Fellows with Dream Director Christian. Within the hour and a half, we had an epic rock-paper-scissors contest, won by Alana, who represented the “HOT” team and soundly defeated the “GO” team. Next, a video was presented by Quamar, D’Anndra, and Teyanna, and our production companies performed skits. It was really HOT–literally and figuratively –especially the performance by Mikata Beat, who encouraged students and faculty to get up and dance!!!

The event ended with the unveiling of Future Fellow Julie’s interactive art piece and an apple juice toast to celebrate.
