Hilltop Herald - Parent Edition

Be Respectful ~ Be Responsible ~ Be Resilient

Volume 1 ~ Issue 26 ~ February 27, 2023

Wonderful Falcon Families,

Don't let obstacles stand in your way... develop the inner attitude of patience, persistence, and perseverance; and, defeat your own procrastination through action not dreaming. ~Catherine Pulsifer~

I want to say that I am proud of your and your teachers for doing exactly what Catherine Pulsifer stated in her quote during our systems outage. The last two weeks tested our patience, persistence and flexibility. And we came through with flying colors. We need to apply these characteristics in every thing we do in our lives because we will always face challenges. How we overcome them will be driven by not allowing these challenges to become obstacles to our successes.

Update on Resetting of Passwords

Falcons, if you were not able to reset your password last week, please make it a priority to go to the library and get support in completing this task. The district is determining a date when to freeze all student accounts that have not gone through the resetting process. Thank you for taking time to complete this important task.

Progress Report 3 Grades Now Available

Students, your official Progress Report 3 Grades are now available on Campus Portal. If you have any failing grades, you should be attending Falcon Scholars every day until your grades have improved. You may also attend Saturday Academy for this purpose. The most important thing is to talk to your teachers. Do not wait until the last minute when it is too late.

Students, if you were absent in the fall during yearbook photos or if you started attending HTM after that date, there is a make-up photo session on March 8, 2023. For any questions, please see Ms. Cruz or email her at dora.cruz@sweetwaterschools.org.
