Milestones are Here!

Quote: "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."  - Thomas Jefferson



Monday is a B day.

Congratulations!


A few weeks ago, the Athens CAVS basketball team qualified for Nationals. Two Hilsman students, Rodney Wright and Jaiden Williams, are members of the team. Congratulations, guys!



This weekend, our PAWS Step Team were the overall winners at the Youth Step Show held at the Classic Center. We won 1st Place AND the People's Choice award! We are very proud of our Panthers!




Milestones Assessment Begins This Week

This week our students begin the Milestones Assessment. There were a few glitches with the practice site as you may have heard; however, our district, the State DOE, and CTB Magraw-Hill (the developers of the test) have assured us that the glitch was only with the practice site, and that the operational test site is working fine. Other states have already begun testing so we have been assured that things should run smoothly for the actual test.

Here is our schedule for the next two weeks:

Tuesday, April 14 ELA Part 1
Wednesday, April 15 ELA Make ups
Thursday, April 16 ELA Part 2
Friday, April 17 ELA Part 2 make ups

Tuesday, April 21 Math
Wednesday, April 22 Science
Thursday, April 23 Social Studies
Friday, April 24 Make ups

If your child has not returned their device to school, it has been marked lost in our system. Please return devices on Monday so that they can be scanned and cleared as located.
