Good Morning Hillcrest Patriots!
This is the start of Red Ribbon Week and we encourage you to join us as we take a stand for making good decisions, including saying no to drugs and alcohol.
This first week is a Colors Week. Each day we will wear a different color. Today’s color is red and the theme is “Stop and think – don’t do drugs!”. Tomorrow’s color is green. We will take pictures and give prizes throughout the week to random students who are participating.
Campus Life Ministries will meet on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 in the Choir Room. Students who attend will be asked to remain in the Choir Room until the first bell rings. Students who would like to eat breakfast can go the lunchroom before 7:40 and grab a “to-go” breakfast before going to the choir room.
Make an effort to get to class on time. Tardies count in every class. Students who have four or six tardies will receive After-School Detention. Students with eight or more tardies will have In-School Intervention.
Don’t forget about our weekly attendance incentive! Your name is automatically entered when you come to school each day for the week. Starting this week, we will announce the winners on Mondays. Coupons will be sent to the winners to get a fresh slushy during lunch that week. The winners for last week’s attendance drawings are: 6th Grade – Alexis Austin and Elijah King, 7th Grade – Joshua Lee and Brayden Smith, 8th Grade – Laila Gray and Dakerri Johnson.
Dress Code must be followed every day. Students who violate the dress code will be sent to the Office to sign the Discipline Log.
7th and 8th Grade Boys: Baseball tryouts will be held this Wednesday through Friday, October 23rd through October 25th, from 4 pm to 6 pm at the Bobby Miller Activity Center. You must have a current physical to tryout. See Coach Haley for the sign-up sheet.
Beauty Walk registration is open and ends on November 4th. Registration Packets can be found in the office and on the school‘s website.
We will read in Advisory every Wednesday. Be sure to have something to read with you.
Each year we are graded on our academic achievement, academic growth and attendance. Thank you students for coming to school each day and taking learning seriously. Our grade for last school year is a B! We are excited about this grade, but we know that there is lots more to do. Help us raise our score this year by continuing to work hard and coming to school each day.
Today for lunch, we are having: Hamburger Steak with Gravy and French Bread, Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Green Beans, Mac-N-Cheese, Fresh Side Salad and 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!
