Parent Conferences- Title I Survey

Teachers will be finishing parent conferences this week. If you still need to meet with your child's teacher, please call the school to make an appointment.

We need ALL parents to take our Title I Parent Survey. It will take less than ten minutes, and will provide us with valuable information as we plan for the future of our school programs. Access the link to the survey here:

Please help us out with this. we need at least 20% of our parents to take the survey. All three of the other middle schools have already surpassed their goal, so let's make sure that Hilsman has at least as many respondents!
