We are now taking referrals for a Skill-Building Group. This will be specifically for students having a difficult time transitioning this school year and those who could benefit from a small group regarding organization, study skills, time management, and coping skills. Please contact Ms. Moore, if you would like your child to participate in this small group.


SET Trash Hunger Campaign

Hilsman Middle School recycles to Trash Hunger! Money that is earned from recycling is donated to UNICEF & the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. Items recycled for the Trash Hunger Campaign need to be separated from your regular recycling.

Hilsman recycles these items locally:
