Principal's Corner

Falcon Community,


I am very thankful for each one of our students, we will keep doing our best to get our students ready for high school, college and life and general. Please know that this coming Thursday, November 11 we will have no school; Veterans Day Holiday. However, we will be back in school on Friday, November 12.


Alco, I cordially extend you an invitation to attend Coffee with the Principal this coming Tuesday, November 9 from 8:30am to 9:30am. The flyer with all the information is attached below.


I would like to update you regarding COVID, we had three COVID positive cases this week. In an effort to ensure that our students participating in extra curricular activities are not expose to COVID, we will begin weekly pool testing. We will inform parents and send consent forms before we test any students; more information forthcoming. Also, we will continue to host COVID testing every other week. Please click here to see the schedule for COVID testing at Hilltop Middle. Please continue encouraging your students to wear their facemasks, this is the only way we can protect each other.


Regarding academics, we only have six weeks left of school. More than ever we want to emphasize first best instruction, meaning we teach each student in the classroom during class time. However, We will continue to offer Falcon Scholar - after school tutoring Monday to Thursdays from 3:20pm to 5:20pm in the cafeteria. Due to construction, we will only have Saturday Academy some Saturdays. Please click here to read our Saturday flyer.


Regarding Climate and Culture, this month we will encourage our students to write thankful notes to our staff in general. I strongly believe we all should be thankful for each other. Students should be thankful for their teachers and school staff, just like teachers and school staff should be thankful for our students. I am certainly thankful for each one of our students and their parents.


I hope you find our newsletter informative.


Thank you.


Respectfully,


Luis Aparicio

Social Emotional Learning for Students

We continue to nurture, foster, and support our student's social emotional learning on a weekly basis through advisory. See the slides linked below for the latest topic addressed in class and engage your student in a conversation on how they are feeling being back at school and if they understand what it means to be socially aware.
