Thanks for a Wonderful Week of Conferences!

Quote: "This week will be awesome because you are in it." - Kid President

Monday is an A day.


Three of our teachers were selected to attend a training at the Ron Clark Academy this past week. They came back FIRED UP! I can't wait to hear all they have to share with our faculty, and for us to see how we might be able to integrate this work into what we are already doing to help our students succeed!

Ms. Murphy, Mr. Martin, Ms. Peterson, and Ms. Fletcher (from Cedar) with Ron Clark!
Congratulations to Hilsman 4-H District Project Achievement Competition Winners! There were over 200 students who competed from 5 different counties.

Connections Preference Forms Due This Week!

Attention current 6th and 7th grade parents! All connections preference forms are due this week, by April 1st. Please turn this in to your child's homeroom teacher. We need this information for next year's scheduling. If you need another copy of the form, you may print one at this link:

Milestones Assessment and Personal Learning Devices

Beginning this Friday, April 3rd, and continuing until the Milestones assessment is concluded, we are asking all students to leave their devices at school in the cart for their classroom. By doing this, we can ensure that 1) all students have a device for testing each day; 2) all devices are charged fully each day; and, 3) we have time to prepare for any additional device needs we may have. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter to ensure that testing goes smoothly for all of our students.

Here is a link to the online practice assessment:

Spring Physicals

The date for our FREE athletic physicals at Athens Orthopedic has been set. It is Saturday, April 18 at 10:30 am. You will need to be at Cedar Shoals by 9:30. Buses will roll at 10:00 and should return by noon. 

Parent Conferences

Thank you to all parents who attended parent conferences this past week. I know some teachers are finishing up conferences this week that had to be rescheduled. We appreciate your investment of time in your child's learning and progress! (photos courtesy of Michelle Hayes)

Picture Day!

This Thursday, April 2nd, is Spring Picture Day! Don't worry, the backdrop this year is a plain, white background! This picture day is pre-purchase only, and only students who pre-purchase will be photographed. students who are being photographed may be out of uniform that day.

PTO and School Council News

Thank you to all the parents who provided food to the faculty during parent conferences. It was fantastic and we all came away well-fed! 

Everyone, remember that PTO has t-shirts and hoodies for sale. Cotton t-shirts are $10, Dry-fit are $15 (just a few dry-fit sizes left), and hoodies are $25. You can purchase them from the main office. Show your "we are Hilsman" spirit!

School Council will be rescheduled due to a conflict.
