Hello Haverhill High School Families,

Next year’s schedules will be available to students’ guidance counselors when we return from break. Counselors will be calling students out of class to resolve holes or conflicts in students’ schedules. Students need to be in class to be called down to guidance by the counselor to resolve conflicts. STUDENTS WHO DROP INTO GUIDANCE WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CHANGE THEIR SCHEDULE. All schedule issues will be resolved by June 1, 2024. There will be no add/drop period in the fall. Thank you for your support as we work to streamline this process.

Juniors in the HHS CTE Healthcare Occupations class had the opportunity to learn about best practices in a professional work environment from Nicole Larcomb VP of Human Resources at Parkland Medical Center.  Topics ranged from creating a resume and navigating workplace conflicts to successfully interviewing for the position you desire.  Ms. Larcomb’s lesson is one element in the CTE program’s mission to assist students in creating an outstanding portfolio.  For more information about the HHS Career Technical Education Work-Based Learning opportunities, contact Lisa Hunt at


Career Technical Education Seniors in the Information Technology and Computer Science & Web Development programs were fortunate to hear from George Peters, the president of New England Invents, during their Entrepreneurship class.  As an independent inventor for over 25 years, Mr. Peters was able to share important information and lessons learned related to the patent process.  This will be helpful as these students move on after high school.

HHS CTE students were fortunate to attend this year’s Girls STEM Summit, held at UMass Lowell.  The day started with a keynote by Shalaya Morissette, Chief, Minority Business and Workforce Division Office of Energy Justice and Equity at U.S. Department of Energy.  Students then participated in five STEM activities focused on pre-health/pre-med, nutrition science, clean energy, biotech and ocean research & exploration.  It was an exciting and fun day, filled with learning and networking!

The HHS CTE Information Technology and Computer Science & Web Development programs were excited to welcome back one of our alumni!  John Mourikas, Director of Technology at Lawrence General Hospital, came to speak with the Freshmen classes.  He shared his background and experience and provided some great advice to these students!  Thanks, John, for your support of our programs!

HHS Career Technical Education students in the Healthcare Occupations and Biomedical Science programs were visited by the UMass Lowell Mobile Health Unit!  Students learned about programs in the Zuckerberg College of Health Sciences as well as mental health support groups throughout the University.  Topics included Public Health, Medical Lab Science, Nursing and other healthcare occupations as well as admission requirements and an overview of campus life.  Dr. Brenda Geiger was so kind to also come into HHS to speak with our large class of HOP Freshmen.  Students learned about Healthcare Science programs offered at UML as well as the different pathways to getting the career of their dreams.  Special thanks to Anne Apigian and all UML staff and students who helped make this special event a success!  For more information about CTE Work-Based Learning opportunities at HHS, contact Lisa Hunt at
