• Good Morning PATS! 


    Students who ride the bus must wear a mask.  Practice washing your hands regularly with soap and water. 


    Tardies count in each class.  Tardies do not start over this nine weeks.  You have five minutes between bells.  Get to class on time.  Students with 4, 6 or 8 tardies will be assigned After-School Detention.


    Bring money for the Book Fair!


    There will be an in-school basketball game on Thursday, December 9.  Five dollar tickets will be sold the day before the game.  Only students with no major discipline issues, are in good academic standing and have no tardies  from November 22 to December 9 will be allowed to purchase a ticket.


    Sweatshirts and hoodies are on sale for $30.  Don’t forget to send your money to the Main Office.


    Track tryouts will be held on Wednesday, December 8 from 3:15 to 4:30 pm.  You must have a current physical to tryout.  See Mrs. Rutledge if you have questions.


    Diamond Dolls is a service organization for Hillcrest Middle School and is directly affiliated with the baseball team..  In order to apply, you will be required to fill out a Registration Form with one teacher recommendation.  If you are a Diamond Doll, you will be responsible for helping set up/clean up the concession stand and sell concessions at HMS baseball home games.  This is not a dance organization.  You will receive community service hours for the time you work.  You must be a current 7th and 8th grade female to apply.


    Here are some basic rules to remember:

    • Respect the personal space of others – keep your hands and feet to yourself.
    • Cell phones are allowed before the 7:55 bell and after the 3:10 bell.  Between those times, make sure your cell phone is put away – out of sight and turned off or on silent.
    • Follow the dress code policy.  Short shorts, short skirts, crop tops and spaghetti straps are not allowed, long shirts must be worn with tights. Holes in pants and shorts should be below the knee.  Bring a change of clothes and put in your locker.  If you are out of dress code, you will be asked to change.
    • Hoods are not allowed while in the hallways.  We must be able to identify you while walking in the hallway. 


    Today for lunch we are having: Buffalo Chicken Dip, Bacon & Jalapeno Cheeseburger, Green Peas, Sidewinders, Fresh Side Salad and Fresh Fruit.


    Remember, we are PATS – we are proactive, we are accepting, we are teachable and we are successful.


    Have an awesome day at Hillcrest Middle!
