• Good Morning PATS! 


    Masks are not required, but are strongly recommended.  Please maintain your distance from others and wash your hands with soap and water.


    Our behavior incentive for this month will be a walking field trip to the high school to view the presentation of Willy Wonka on Thursday, January 27.  Only 50 tickets per grade level will be sold.  We will open ticket sales the day before the event.  Only students who do not have major discipline issues will be considered for ticket purchase.   Major discipline issues includes frequent tardies and repeatedly wearing your hood inside the building.


    There will be a Football Interest Meeting for 8th graders who want to play for Hillcrest High School next year on Tuesday, January 25 at 8:30 am.  We will make an announcement when it is time to leave class.


    Congratulations to our Girls Basketball Team on a successful season and for placing 2nd in the City-County Basketball Tournament.  We are proud of you!


    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 havingBuffalo Chicken Dip, Hamburger, Sweet Potato Fries, Green Peas, 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!
