Week of March 31st

Quote of the Week: “Second only to freedom, learning is the most precious option on earth.” – Norman Cousins



Thank You!

We had a great week of parent conferences. Thank you to the PTO for feeding the faculty on Thursday, our late night. I don't think anyone went away hungry! 

Hilsman's World Fair

Save the Date! April 26th will be our first ever Hilsman's World Fair. The purpose of this event is to both have fun as a Hilsman community and to raise awareness of our cultural diversity. Look for more information coming next week.

Spring Picture Day 

Wednesday, April 2nd is our Spring Picture Day. Students can be out of uniform if they are having their picture taken. They must still comply with the CCSD dress code. Picture order forms went home last week. Orders must be prepaid. If you need another form, they are available in the front office.

Immunization Changes for Next Year

At Parent Conferences you should have received information on immunization changes for the coming year. If you did not, look in next week's Panther Pointers for more info.

Golfing for a Good Cause
The Golf Tournament was a great success! Thanks to Mr. Gaddis for organizing, and to Ms. Butler, Ms. Luthi, Mr. Martin, Dr. Ezekiel, Coach Varnadoe, and Mr. Dorsey for coming out on a "slightly moist" Saturday to help out and participate. We had 37 golfers who had a blast. The PTO raised over $2000 to be able to send our PSP students who have met the attendance criteria to Six Flags. Way to go!
