HCS Seeking Assistance for Selecting Theme for Upcoming School Year
Several weeks ago, Hardin County Schools (HCS) reached out to its students, parents, staff and community via its website and social media platforms, to help select a “hashtag” (#) for the upcoming school year.
According to a press release, the district surveyed more than 200 people who responded. HCS used its online platforms to to market the survey that asked people to submit their thoughts and nominations for the upcoming year’s theme.
Over the past three years, HCS has used themes for their social media posts, and have encouraged students and staff to do the same. The selected themes have been used as hashtags when posting positive pictures, good news, etc. The themes that have been used previously are:
- 2014-15 — #HCSExtraordinary
- 2015-16 — #HCSImact
- 2016-17 — #HCSMakeItCount
According to the press release, a committee has narrowed down the submitted nomination to a “Top 10” list of potential themes. The district has posted that committee’s “Top 10” in the “news and announcements” section of the Hardin County Schools website and asked people to vote for one.
“We believe these themes have helped the district focus on one common goal to help students achieve more and learn at higher levels,” HCS Superintendent Teresa Morgan said. “The theme has a hashtag (#) and ‘HCS’ in front of it. The ten finalists are impressive and carry strong messages for what is going to be a strong and impressive school year. Everyone can vote through 4:30 pm this Friday (July 21).”
The Top 10 finalists are;
