In the spring of 2009 eleven seniors in Ms. Kornfeld's Advanced Placement Environmental Science class changed the little-used lawn behind the Guidance Department into the school's first Outdoor Classroom. This year students and teachers are using the all-new stone walk, trees, archway and benches for the first time. The Gardening Club works on the raised perennial beds that border the classroom.

In an opening ceremony the classroom was dedicated to people at HHS who had passed away during recent years, including Industrial Arts teacher Dick Guyer and student James Holley. The class of 2008 left enough money for the stone, gravel, wooden ties, plants and furniture.
