8th Graders to DC

We had a wonderful trip to DC this past week. Our students were EXEMPLARY everywhere we went. They set the example for other groups to follow. On a personal note, they made me very proud to be their principal and I will have many fond memories of this trip. Here are a few photos from the trip!

Hilsman Jubilee and Inaugural Panther Prowl 5k

This is the week! May 14, 2016 is the date we have set for our Hilsman Jubilee celebration, honoring the 50th anniversary of the school's opening. We hope to see everyone at the reception and artwork unveiling!

We will kick off the day with the inaugural Panther Prowl 5k, which will raise funds for a variety of causes such as enrichment/service-learning opportunities for our students, and providing incentives as a part of our positive school culture plan (PBIS). The course will be a great one, winding through the beautiful Cedar Creek neighborhood, and the race will be part of the Run and See Georgia Grand Prix. You won't want to miss it!

The Jubilee Celebration will take place following the Panther Prowl. We plan to unveil the mural at our celebration May 14th at 10:30 a.m. There will be refreshments and tours of the school. Please invite all former Hilsman students and teachers to attend!
