Gearing up for a Busy Week

Quote of the Week: "The art of life lies in the constant readjustment to our surroundings." Okakura Kakuzo

The Week in Review

Last week was a pretty quiet four day week. Before leaving for Fall Break, we held our first virtual Town Hall Meetings. The feedback was positive, and we may look to do additional meetings through this format in the future. Dr. E. and I discovered a few issues on our end (such as the video feed covers up some of the data we presented!) but we will take those into consideration in the future. You can view the meeting here

We also had a great time at our first ever Fright Fest. Below are a couple of pics from the event:

Thanks to our volunteers!

PTO Fundraiser

The PTO is conducting a Yankee Candle fundraiser over the next week. The funds raised will go back into the classrooms at Hilsman to help our students. Packets were distributed through homeroom, and there is also a way to order online. Please contact Beth Campbell if you need more information. 

America Recycles Day

November 15th is America Recycles Day at Hilsman. We are having a contest among the students to see how many create ways we can recycle trash.  Students should bring their contest entries to the media center.

Art at the Lyndon House

Some of our students have art represented at the Lyndon House this month. Check it out!


Basketball season is here!  Our first game is this Thursday against Coile Middle at Coile.

Moonlight Madness is coming Friday, November 15th from 6-8 PM. Join us that evening for lots of fun and school spirit!
