Principal's Update

Hello Hound Families,

The kids have really enjoyed the break in the weather the last couple weeks. Hopefully we don't get too much additional snow. Once we get our hopes up for spring, those snowy days seem more daunting. Luckily for us, the kids just go with the flow. As things warm up the playground gets a little muddy, so we ask kids to bring their boots a snow pants so they return to the classroom warm and dry. They tell me they get too warm, so lighter coats can make it more comfortable for them at recess.

Notification of Positive Cases of COVID

In the event of a positive case of COVID-19 at Hilton, families whose child(ren) are quarantined are notified by email. For information on new cases of COVID at Hilton, and the total number for the year, families can visit the BAS website. Information is listed for all schools in the district.

NWEA Testing - 3rd and 4th Grade

Third and fourth graders will be taking the NWEA reading test next week. Be sure they get a good night's sleep and eat a healthy breakfast. Math will take place the week of March 15th.

Youth Art Month Exhibition

The Brighton District Library is again hosting the Youth Art Exhibition this year. Families can visit the library to see works of art from students around the district. A letter will be sent home if your child has a piece on display.

Our Art teacher, Mr. Walker, set up the exhibit yesterday, and works will be on display through Tuesday, April 4th, 2021.

Have a great weekend,

Jeff Eisele,

Hilton Principal

Welcome to the Counselor Corner!

Welcome to the Counselor Corner!

Here we are in March, ready for some sunshine and warmer weather! This month, I will be visiting classrooms for some Read Alouds and social-emotional based stories to celebrate Reading Month. My goal for this month is to take more time to directly meet the needs of students individually and to support our incredible teachers during this stretch of the year when we all need a little extra TLC.

Lets Connect: If you are noticing some behaviors that are interfering with your child’s success in the classroom, please feel free to complete my parent referral form and we can work together to determine if supports are needed at school.

More Resources: The Elementary Counseling Team also has the BAS Elementary Counseling (New Updates!) website for ideas and resources to be used at home!
