Good Morning PATS!
Don’t forget to bring your iPad to school each day. Leave the charger at home, but make a habit to charge your device every night.
Next week is the last week of the first nine week grading period. You should receive study guides in your classes that will help you prepare for nine week exams. We will take exams in Math, Social Studies and afternoon electives on Thursday, October 6. We will take exams in English, Science and morning electives on Friday, October 7.
We have several dress up days for the month of October. Each dress-up day has a significant meaning and we are encouraging our students to participate to show support and school spirit. Monday, October 3 is Bullying Awareness Day. We want to take a collective stand against bullying and speaking up when you see something that’s wrong. Please wear blue on Monday, October 3. Special sweet treats will be given out during lunch to those who are wearing blue.
Our next football game is Thursday, October 6 against Echols. Our theme is “Wipe out the Wildcats”. Please wear tropical/Hawaiian clothes to school.
Picture Day is also Thursday, October 6. We will take pictures in the morning. You can wear your picture clothes to school and then change if you want.
7th and 8th grade boys and girls who are interested in trying out for outdoor track. Try outs will be held on October 12th and 13th @ 3:30. You must have a current physical to tryout. Please see Coach Johnson and Coach Ryans-Ford for details.
8th Grade Students – please turn in your green field trip forms and money by Friday, October 7.
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.
- Dress code rules apply. Hoods are not allowed in the hallway. Use your fingertips as a guide for shorts and skirts. No short shorts, short shirts, spaghetti straps or major holes above the knee. Please wear a shirt that covers your behind if you have on leggings or tights. Bring a change of clothes to put in your locker.
Today for lunch we are having: Cheesy Frito Pie, Hot Dog, Pizza Poppers, Zucchini and Sweet Potato Fries.
Remember, we are PATS – we are proactive, we are accepting, we are teachable and we are successful.
Have an awesome day at Hillcrest Middle!
