Conservation Fair - What a Success!

Hilsman's 3rd Annual Conservation Fair was another successful one. Although the cold weather kept some people at home, the fair was still well-attended and everyone enjoyed the interactive stations. Here are a few pictures!





Hilsman Dominates Science and Social Studies Fair

Hilsman Panthers dominated the district science and social studies fairs this weekend. Overall Hilsman students took first place in 8 out of 11 categories! These students will move on to the regional science fair now.

In the District Social Studies Fair hosted at Hilsman this past week, Hilsman had sixteen projects selected to move on to the regional social studies fair on February 14th. Way to go, Panthers!


Chess Tournament and Entrepreneurship Competition

Hilsman also represented well at the Community Chess tournament and conference. The conference also recognized winners of the Real Ledge Middle School Entrepreneurial Challenge. Car’niyah Dunn and Kyala Conner, both Hilsman students, each got $500 to start their enterprises after submitting business ideas to Real Ledge. Congratulations, girls!
