If you are a Salthawk alumnus from the past 40 years or longer, you remember one thing about the holidays at Hutchinson High School. The tradition has little to do with snow men, reindeer or other symbols of the winter holidays.
Instead, the tradition is something that speaks to our Kansas heritage – square dancing.
During the final few school days before Christmas, students at Hutchinson High School have the opportunity to square dance in the Junior Varsity Gymnasium at HHS. Square dancing will be held on Dec. 16, 19 and 20.
Retired physical education teacher Tom Clark will return for an encore performance as a caller for the dances.
Square dancing is tied to the physical education curriculum at HHS.
