HPE Chats With Author Elana K Arnold

  • HPE author chat

     HPE students had the opportunity to visit with Elana K Arnold, the author of A Boy Called Bat, a funny and heartfelt first book in a trilogy about a young boy on the autism spectrum. Asking questions they carefully penned before the Skype event, students learned more about the writing process, creating characters, the author's family and her love of animals!

HP Alma Mater

  • Though we’re but a country high school,
    Our name unknown to fame
    To our colors we are loyal,
    Our heritage we claim;

    We defend the gold and purple,
    Wherever we may be,
    Our hearts forever faithful
    To the old school in H.P.


    The purple hue is royal,
    The gold is pure and fine,
    And both are king’s apparel
    Ordained by word divine,

    Therefore, royal are our colors,
    To them we true must be,
    To show we love and honor
    The old school in H.P.
