Week of January 28th

Quote of the Week: "Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely." 
 - Auguste Rodin

No Name Calling Week

February 4-8, Hilsman will engage in activities that affirm our commitment to a culture of kindness and respect by observing No Name Calling Week.  We have activities planned for each day of the week.  On Wednesday, February 6th, we will have our annual Pink Out against bullying and name-calling.  On that day, students can wear pink shirts, pink socks, (and yes, jeans, provided they do not have holes or rips!) to show their stand against bullying. We will be taking orders this week for our "Real Panthers Wear Pink" T-shirt, which is on display in the front office.  They are $6, and can be ordered through the front office.  See Ms. Torres if you are interested.  Payment is expected at the time of order.

Our weekly Pride of the Panther drawings are going well!  You can see some of our winners below. They are very excited about being able to wear their gold shirt any day of the week! 

Students will be automatically entered into the drawing if they meet the following criteria for that week:

1) Perfect attendance and no tardies for the week
2) No zero's or missing assignments for the week
3) Have not moved to the next step on the discipline plan during the week

1) Be nominated by a staff member for exhibiting behaviors that contribute to the positive culture at Hilsman. 

Our goal with this addition to our PAWS incentive program is to encourage good work habits and a postive attitude among our students. 

Here are our Pride of the Panthers from last week!
