UPDATED - - No School for Students April 6th - Enjoy!

Quote: "You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them." - Michael Jordan

Tuesday is a B day.


On Friday we held our Quarter Three Honors assemblies for each grade level. Students who had perfect attendance, A-B Honor Roll, and A Honor Roll were recognized. As a reward, students who made perfect attendance and A-B Honor Roll will have uniform free day on Thursday. Students who made All A Honor Roll will have uniform free days on Thursday AND Friday.

We also recognized students who participated in the State Science Fair. One student, TK Monford, placed second overall and also one the Merial Award. TK will be recognized at the May BOE meeting. Here he is below with two other six graders who also represented Hilsman at the state fair. Including one seventh grade student, HIlsman had four students represent at the State Science Fair last weekend.

Attention current 6th and 7th grade parents! All connections preference forms were due last 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:

Youth Step Show - April 11th

This Saturday, the Hilsman PAWS Step Team will compete in the Annual Youth Step Show held at The Classic Center. The show begins at 5:00 pm and advanced tickets are $12. Tickets can be purchased for $15 at the door. Please come out and support our wonderful step team!

Milestones Assessment and Personal Learning Devices

Beginning 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.
