Hill Elementary School ~ January 20, 2015

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a restful extended weekend. It's hard to believe that the end of the second marking period is just next week. As you are marking report cards, please remember that comments are required. As a parent, you can really glean so much information from the personal comments.

It's been exciting seeing the data that has been entered thus far. Congratulations for all of your hard work! If you haven't set up your data meeting, please schedule it with Ranee. I'm looking forward to meeting with each of you to discuss the progress that you have made toward your goals.

A few of the GREAT things that I noticed this week...

Ms. Henderson received an overwhelming response from 3rd & 4th grade students wanting to participate in lunch bunch. 75% of 3rd & 4th grade students signed up! Way to go Rachel!

2 more positive office referrals were turned in recognizing outstanding Cardinal Code behavior! Thank you Linda!

We kicked off our partnership with the Davison Varsity Basketball team this past week. Looking forward to having them here on Wednesday mornings mentoring our students. Thank you Jeane!

We currently have 5 National Junior Honor Society students who are putting in their community service hours here at Hill. Thank you for welcoming these students into your classrooms!

The Charlotte's Web Dioramas that are displayed in front of third grade classrooms look outstanding. Students had such great pride as they brought them into the building.

PTO has agreed to fund our One Book One School once again. The books have been ordered!

100% of Hill parents who completed the Parent Satisfaction Survey felt that the academic curriculum is preparing their child to be academically successful and they feel welcome by the staff as a partner in their child's education! Way to go! I'll share the rest of the results at our staff meeting on Thursday.
