Music is in the air...

Quote of the Week: "The wealth of this world is in the people around you and how you care for them and treat them is of the utmost importance." - Collin Klein

Our P.A.R.K. of trees is growing! Just within the first week of our PARK initiative, we have nine trees in our cafeteria that are filled with Panther Acts of Random Kindness. I am so proud of our students and faculty in how they have embraced the opportunity to spread kindness here at Hilsman and throughout our community. Encourage your child to keep up the good deeds, and to make sure they add their PARKs to their grade level trees!

Holiday Joint Concert

Please join us this Monday evening, December 10th, at 6:30 p.m. in the new gym for our joint holiday concert.  You won't want to miss this special treat, and have to opportunity to hear our band, chorus, and orchestra all perform on the same evening. We look forward to having a full gym for this special occasion.

Quarter Two Benchmarks

Quarter two benchmarks will begin on Thursday, December 13th and will conclude on December 18th.  Makeups will be conducted on December 19th.  Benchmarks help our teachers have a better understanding of how well your student understands the material they have learned over the previous nine weeks. You can be involved in benchmarks by making sure that your child gets plenty of rest the night before (at least 8-9 hours per night according to the National Sleep Foundation) and eats a healthy breakfast either at home or at school.


Our announcements are now a daily Google Presentation, which can be viewed by clicking here.
