What a year we have had! Panther Pointers, last edition for the 2014-15 school year!

Quote: "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of becoming." -- Goethe

Monday is an A day.

Early Dismissal on Thursday at 12:30 p.m.

Congratulations to Hilsman for once again earning a Green School Designation!

Congratulations to several of our 7th graders for winning First Place in the Ripple Effect Film Festival Competition!

To our Connections team and our whole faculty for helping this to be one of the most memorable weeks of the school year for our students. We had great Field Days, a faculty vs. Student basketball game, and a wonderful 8th grade Semi-Formal Dance! Here are a few pics from this week. Follow @Paxpanther on Instagram for more photos!

Interest Meeting for 2016 DC Trip (Rising 8th Graders)

There will be an interest meeting for all rising 8th graders and their parents on Tuesday, May 19th, at 5:30 p.m. in the Hilsman Cafeteria. This meeting will provide information about the trip, and parents who would like to go ahead and reserve a spot will be able to do so for only $49, instead of the normal $99 deposit. Space will be limited to 80 students, so plan to attend the meeting and get more information regarding scholarships available.

Title Input for Next Year

There will be a meeting at Hilsman from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19th, to gather input for our Title I planning for next year. Please come share your ideas with us! Contact Joann Griffith, Family Engagement Specialist, for more information.
