Fall Festival and Moonlight Madness

Quote of the Week: "High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation." - Charles Kettering

I hope everyone had a relaxing Fall Break. The Hilsman community is cordially invited to participate in our annual Fall Festival this evening, from 6-8 p.m. To view the promo for the Fall Festival, click here.

Saturday Success

Our Saturday Success Program will be held November 3rd and November 10th here at Hilsman. The program will run from 9-12 and transportation is provided. This quarter our focus will be on Math and ELA. We have identified 75 students as excellent candidates for the Saturday Success program, which will help them be more successful in ELA and Math. Letters were sent home with students on Monday, October 29th.  

Who Let the Dawgs Out?

The gentlemen from AT&T came this morning to pick up the Dawg that our art students painted for the Pioneer group. The Dawg will be dedicated Friday morning and will sit in front of the AT&T store on Prince Avenue.  We are excited and honored that our students and Ms. Campbell invited to complete this project.


Students and teachers continue to be excited about our new technology. This week, all 8th grade Math and ELA teachers teachers will roll out net books. These teachers, as well as two 7th grade Math and ELA teachers, will pilot the Teacher Resource Link for the next several months. Teachers can access these resources to provide individualized remediation and enrichment to students in their classrooms. 

Pride of the Panthers

We had over 30 students across all grade levels receive the Pride of the Panthers award for the first nine weeks.  These students had perfect attendance for the quarter, zero discipline referrals, and made A honor roll. In addition to having a celebration last Thursday afternoon, these students also receive a no uniform pass for the entire week this week! Each quarter students have the opportunity to earn the Pride of the Panthers award, so we are looking forward to even more students next quarter. Here is a photo from our September attendance incentive:


Our basketball teams kick off their season with their annual Moonlight Madness.  Come join us this Friday from 6-9 p.m. in the new gym.
